glenneroo replies: must agree. not a UK resident, but its pretty much the same everywhere these days. only the top two parties make it to the top, the rest have no chance. people only vote for who dumps the most zillions into campaigning (spamming) thereby eliminating any chances of bringing someone into office who might actually represent what the people would actually want...

Tiger43 replies: To Matt...Yes, the government shall allways win short of a revolution of some kind. However such a thing would set this country back 100 years. No more MacDonalds, no more mobile phones, it goes on. And you can call me Joanna Lumley if that wouldn`t be so.

Tiger43 replies: To A1....I agree of course, but please, don`t bring the frog language into this. It has to be the most ridiculous language ever conceived until someone started talking welsh. If there was an alien civilizasion which had a truly universal language translater for all beings, I don`t think they would have picked up on Welsh. If anyone Welsh is reading this, I beg for your forgivness!

Unpredictable replies: Is it by any chance the State that the original poster objects to? Don't worry, the State is due to be abolished. Certainly it will be before Blair's promises are kept or targets met.

You heard it here first!

And talking of a universal language - anyone remember Esperanto?!!

About Not Apathetic

NotApathetic was built so that people who are planning not to vote in the UK General Election on May 5th can tell the world why. We won't try to persuade you that voting is a good or a bad idea - we're just here to record and share your explanations. Whether ideological, practical or other, any reason will do.

A lot of users would like us to mention that if you spoil your ballot paper, it will be counted. So if you want to record a vote for "none of the above", you can.
