Not Apathetic

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

They're not voting because...

I'm not voting because when did I get...

I'm not voting because when did I get the chance to vote to give myself a wonderful final salary, non contributary pension scheme? That would be a little unfair as all around the UK they're being abolished wouldn't it? Once in, they play by a whole set of unjust rules. They are far more interested in their career and internal games than the reason they were elected in the first place.
Totally fed up with them telling us how and what to do all the time.

Jax replies: But surely this he whole point of democracy, if you don't like em, vote them out.
Vote independant or third party.

Paul replies: Ahem, all MPs get this wonderful system mate - that's why voting em out is pointless on this one.

They play with enhanced rules. If we get a bunch of travelers setup camp on our road what happens? If I claim 40k for my wife to do some company admin for me what do you suppose the IR does to me (actually it is 3k in my case!)? If I had an emergency and had to call the police what would the level of priority be? The general public fund this lot - I don't see real accountability anymore & I'm not sure if it was ever there in recent history.

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.
