Not Apathetic

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

They're not voting because...

...because you can barely ...

...because you can barely get a cigarette paper in between the policies of the three major parties, and no-one else is standing in my area.

I'm not apathetic - I was one of the two-odd million on the march against the war which didn't get listened to and have been involved in other political campaigns in the past. Even the Lib-Dems who pretend to have been against the war were only against it when the wind was blowing in the right direction - they changed their tune as soon as war was actually declared, then changed it back when it suited them.

A plague on all your houses. The sooner we get a real alternative to these faceless, clueless political hypocrites to choose the better.

Alison replies: I too was on that march, indeed I was part of the LibDem contingent. We were and are and always will be against an unjust war that this country was taken into against its will and without the full facts being made available.

We were never in favour of the *war* at any time, but whilst we had troops from this country putting their lives at risk it was surely only right to tell them that they (as soldiers) have our support while they do their job. To do anything else would be wrong.

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.
