Not Apathetic

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

They're not voting because...

We are happy to send our troops to war...

We are happy to send our troops to war, criticise the reasons why they have been sent, prosecute them if they do wrong but we can't be bothered to look after them when they are wounded. In the field they often have to be looked after by foreign military medical services. When they get home they are put into any NHS hospital and any vacant bed - even into a geriatric ward. None of the major parties have shown any interest or inclination to do anything about this deplorable situation

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.
