I am not sure I qualify for this site because I intend to spoil my ballot paper. My only form of electoral protest. I will write LABOUR YES - BLAIR NO across it. I cannot vote for a party lead by a man advocates the marketisation of public services; introduces tuition fees, passes legislation with such authoritarian powers of state that the Conservatives oppose it and deceives me over the need for such haste in invading Iraq.I encourage others to do the same - at least some party agent will read the ballot paper and may despair.

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.
