This election is bringing an intolerable situation to a head.

Fee replies: I agree we need to cut some slack even though protest is vital - but throwing the proverbial baby out of the bath with the water is dangererous, as cheap jibing and a lack of understanding about the processes that govern politicians and us, leads us to make transient and whimsical conclusions. Collectively, it puts at risk the participative framework that has been established particularly well in the UK that once displaced is very hard to re-instate.

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.
