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 right wing, nor right wing, ...

I'm not right wing, nor right wing, and not even right wing.

Cohen replies: and is the vegan smoothie some kind of dig at people who have religious, moral or ethical reasons for not eating meat, lars? Would that be connected with the use of the word "profound" to describe a load of nonsense? And are either of those things really anything to do with putting people (or do I mean stereotypes?) on the political spectrum?

lars replies: I wouldnt dream of scoffing at moral or ethical reasoning. Why, at this very minute I'm typing on a fair-trade wicker keyboard and wearing a moo-moo made from recycled hemp. Anyone peddling tired stereotypes is a disgrace and probably an agent of the vile blairite junta attempting to discredit perfectly sensible liberal politics.

Matt replies: Vegan smoothie! what's the difference with normal ones? does it taste better or put less inches on your waist?

Does that make Cohen similar to Ghengis Khan whose been brought in from the cold as a smooth(ie) talking liberal (pillager and warlord). I think the only right wing Ghengis liked was on his army when they whupped the enemy.

Who says you have to confirm to a journalistic tag? Be your own flavour of political animal.

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.
