They're not voting because...
- ...because you can barely ...
...because you can barely get a cigarette paper in between the policies of the three major parties, and no-one else is standing in my area.
I'm not apathetic - I was one of the two-odd million on the march against the war which didn't get listened to and have been involved in other political campaigns in the past. Even the Lib-Dems who pretend to have been against the war were only against it when the wind was blowing in the right direction - they changed their tune as soon as war was actually declared, then changed it back when it suited them.
A plague on all your houses. The sooner we get a real alternative to these faceless, clueless political hypocrites to choose the better.written 7th Apr 2005
Alison replies: I too was on that march, indeed I was part of the LibDem contingent. We were and are and always will be against an unjust war that this country was taken into against its will and without the full facts being made available.
We were never in favour of the *war* at any time, but whilst we had troops from this country putting their lives at risk it was surely only right to tell them that they (as soldiers) have our support while they do their job. To do anything else would be wrong.written 7th Apr 2005
