Its not me who is apathetic; its the damn politicians and their party workers. Until last weekend I had had no-one call, or even drop a leaflet through my door. I had resolved to vote for the first politician who could be bothered to ask me if I would vote for him. I was bemonaing all this to a neighbour, and half an hour later the tory candiate actually called to see me! I don't think I could actually put a cross in the box marked conservative, so thats why I won't be voting.

Undoubtedly he did, and all credit for the Tory candidate for spotting a possible catch.

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.
