Not Apathetic

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

They're not voting because...

Living in a safe Labour constituency...

Living in a safe Labour constituency, it really doesn't matter who I vote for. I used to be a Labour supporter, but the illegal Iraq invasion, kow-towing to Dumbya, ID cards, backdoor stealth NHS privatisation, reinforcement of unfortunate conservative social changes etc. means that I can no longer vote for them. Obviously, I can't vote conservative. And the Lib-Dems have so far not promised to renationalise all the publicly-owned utilities that the tories stole during the 80s, so they don't get it either.

AJ replies: I understand all your last points, but your first point about your constituency being a safe Labour one is treading on dangerous ground. When people don't vote because they think it's a foregone conclusion, they let that conclusion happen by just one more vote.

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.
