Throughout the course of my life I've watched our so called representatives in action via the media in its various forms.

I've come to the general theory that in a "Parliamentary Democracy" the real scum seems to rise to the top.

I'd hate to encourage them in thinking their childish and often criminal behaviour is justified by voting.

As far as I'm concerned my silence is one of disgust at the lies, racism and casual brutality our leaders seem inclined too, no matter what Party they belong to.

And no, I won't spoil my ballot. I shouldn't have to.

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.
