Not Apathetic

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

They're not voting because...

Although a very politically-active person...

Although a very politically-active person by nature (usually, anyway) I simply cannot decide whom to vote for this time around, so I'm not going to. The way things are going, it is unlikely to make the slightest bit of difference, if I do, as my constituency is one of the safest seats in the country. Although a card-carrying member of the Labour Party (and have been for a long time), I am getting seriously pi**ed-off with the control-freakery, and downright disregard for the feelings of the public exhibited by Tony Blair and his entourage. Added to this the fact that hell would have to freeze over twice before I voted Conservative. Sorry to any Conservative sympathisers out there, but I personally just do not agree with anything the Tories stand for.
So my only option is the Lib Dems. Now I rather like what the Lib Dems are saying, and what they would do, if by some freak of electoral miracle they were to come to power. However, the cynical part of me says "they can say what they like, because they'll never have to deliver", as they WON'T come to power (not in the near or medium-term, anyway.) So what's the point in casting a vote if it's going to waste? (Just make sure the tories stay out, please!)

. replies: why oh why does anybody still buy into three party politics? can nobody see through this sham? every one of the big three is ultimately following the same agenda. there isn't any difference between them, the only thing that the three party deception achieves is it keeps power in the same hands....always. everybody seems to be moaning about not feeling represented.....there is an easy solution...STOP VOTING FOR THEM. there are plenty of parties out there, vote for them and dilute the powerbase of those that are destroying our society!

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.
