Not Apathetic

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

They're not voting because...

I want to vote for an English leader...

I want to vote for an English leader with pro English and European policies but who isn't a racist.

I don't want a George W's lapdog
I want to support English industry, support Englsih jobs.

What I really wants is a SNP for England.

Gavin replies: How about Micheal Howard (2nd generation immigrant)? And shouldn't you vote for a party rather than a leader? Tony may have excessive power, but in most parties there are other people who have an appropriate level of influence.

Robert replies: I think my point about George Bush precludes me voting for the tories.

Garry replies: Perhaps there is no England left.

All we have are millionaires with offshore accounts.
Enterprising Immagrants with loyalties elsewhere.
A mass exodus of the able.

All we will be left with are a bunch of Chav's in fenced in estates - ASBO'd and electronically tagged and a patchwork of small bubbles of global cultures.

If people want to see what England was then they can watch some black and white films in a museum somewhere.

Tiger43 replies: I would vote for Tom Baker as PM, he`s English with a booming voice and a trained actor.

Garry replies: The BNP aren't offering any solutions.
(other than the final one)

Tom Baker is half Jewish - so the BNP and the Islamists wouldn't accept him.

Pity... he has got a great voice.

Pete the Punk replies: Can't see the BNP or Islamics having anything against Tommy Sheridan - wouldn't it be easier if we all just voted for him?

Garry replies: Sorry... Pete The Punk
I don't know Tommy Sheridan
Is he the front man for some popular beat combo?

Tiger43 replies: To Gary......Stop nit picking about Tom Baker being half Jewish. He`s as English as scones with jam and cream on. I suppose your`e going to tell me that scones originated from Iceland, the country, not the frozen supermarket store.

Garry replies: Tiger43 - No picking of the nits from me.
I was just stating the absurdity of BNP / Islamist positions.
How about some warm beer and cricket there's a special 2 for 1 offer in Morrison's.

Tiger43 replies: To Gary... Sounds great, not sure however about playing cricket in a Morrison`s supermarket though, wouldn`t some of their groceries get damaged? I love warm beer though. Can`t understand why our American cousins won`t have a drink without huge mouthfuls of ice. I mean, whats wrong with them, its not as if they live in a desert where it only rains once every 100 years. Don`t know about the cricket though, football fan myself, Liverpool to be precise, and before anyone comes back with any silly comments about Liverpool FC. No English club will ever, and I mean ever acheive what Liverpool did in the late 70`s and throughout the 80`s, so there.

sue replies: yeah this excess of ice in all the drinks here is annoying; I think it's also to cut costs and provide very little soda in ratio to large amounts of ice.
However, in Texas it gets so Bl**dy hot in summer that it's practically desert and it does cool you down

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.
