Not Apathetic

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

They're not voting because...

I don't believe a word any of hte politicians...

I don't believe a word any of hte politicians say. In this day and age, everything they say is built on spin. Each party is making promises so that we vote for them, but each party will also find some way of wriggling out of their promises when they get elected as they know that the bills/acts will not get passed.

when the Tories were in power, I used to believe that Labour would sort us out and be a breath of fresh air, but I think we have all seen that this is a pile of doggie doodoo.

piersh replies: In what sense is this a pile of doggie-doo? I agree that the government is frequently duplicitous, but they haven't actually done a bad job of running the economy. I remember the last recession, so this is something I am very grateful for.

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.
