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 in the competence of...

I don't believe in the competence of any of them, not do I trust any of them particularly. In fact if I did trust any of them then I'd be horrified at paucity of their ideas.
In other words, if any of them believe what they say then they're either inconsistent, shallow, purely populist, wrong (with the proviso that I might not be right about that, but it's *my* vote), or some combination. If they don't believe what they say - why should I vote for them then?

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.
