Not Apathetic

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

They're not voting because...

Boys will be boys... The childish games...

Boys will be boys... The childish games between the main 3 parties is silly, the spin, the lies. Perhaps they should all sit a lie detector test!

They all have similiar manifesto, though not one of them is having the gumption to stand up and be strong and honest as well as being different.

Jay replies: Similar manifesto's ??

Read the manifesto explanations at or take the test and tell me they are similar. Yes Labour and the Conservatives have a fair bit of common ground, however there are large differences between them and the various other parties, you don't have to vote for one of the big two or three.

Many thanks for the url............

Perhaps I could blind fold myself and wave my pen above the ballot sheet and hurl the pen down somewhere to place a splodge of ink on the paper.

I am still not convinced.............

ryano replies: Find out how many candidates are standing in your area, then go to one of those geeky anorak gaming dungeons and dragons shops and buy a die with the number of sides equal to the amount of candidates. When in the ballot box, roll the die and hey presto fate takes over. That's a lot easier than having to wade through all the guff produced by the parties and the media. Actually, I think I may have to patent that idea, where's the nearest patent office?

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.
