Not Apathetic

Tell the world why you're not voting - don't let your silence go unheard

They're not voting because...

I didn't vote because I wanted my non...

I didn't vote because I wanted my non-vote to be counted as a statement of protest for the inneffectiveness of the Lib-Dems and in particular Charles Kennedy.

I would have voted had the LDs pulled their act together and seized the opportunity afforded by the hopelessness of Michael Howard's Tories to become the second party.

I think they should sack Kennedy and install someone instead who can inspire and lead a nation.

LDs: You claim to be a Real Alternative. Prove it by being an effective and aggressive political force.

chris replies: Your vote won't be counted that way, it will be counted as someone who couldn't be bothered to vote. Perhaps you should have voted againts the lib dems, then that would have been counted as a protest.

Dave replies: So you're a Lib Dem voter, believer and you just because you don't like your leader and the way they have been incompetant at electioneering you want to protest against that.

Surely getting YOUR party into power is the lesser of two evils.

Chris McBride replies: I don't necessarily share the poster's views, but surely the best way to ensure that the Lib Dems ditch Charles Kennedy is to become a party member/activist?

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.
