I will be spoling my ballot with the phrase 'None Of The Above'

The electoral system does no justice to democracy. I have never had the opportunity to vote for a candidate that i supported or who was likely to win.

Mnay people say that spoling the ballot is a worthless activity, but short of a revolution I don't know how we get the message across to politicians that they stink?

. replies: i agree with you but unfortunately you're missing the point, the politicians do not care what you and i think, the big three know that due to the general stupidity of the electorate they will be returned to power time after time.if only the masses could wake up and think a little more deeply and for themselves rather than allow a controlled media to form opinions and open their eyes to the fact that the lib/lab/con's are persuing the same agenda. dont spoil your ballot paper, just vote for someone outside of the big three......anybody in fact. just think if everybody did this then the real rulers of our establishment (not the party leaders) would get the message!

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.
