Not Apathetic

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

They're not voting because...

Britain is only a semi democratic county...

Britain is only a semi democratic county. Media and Politicians collude to debate a narrow spectrum of policies which leads the people into a democracy of delusion, where by we can vote but for nothing. Where are the real issues, imperial wars, privatisation, arms sales, environment, etc etc etc.

Interestingly the way democracy doesn't work in the USA. There have been slightly more toplevel changes in the political elite in the old soviet union than there is today in America. Look at Wolfowitz and Cheney's careers and you'll see that from Zimbabwe to Iraq to Britain and the USA, democracy is in a shambles and it's the politicians that are making this happen.

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.
