Not Apathetic

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

They're not voting because...

All politicians spend too much time ...

All politicians spend too much time slagging the other parties off and I think this sets a bad example to the children of today. Like telling tales on each other.

Steve C replies: I'm getting hugely frustrated by this idiotic reasoning that's coming from pollsters, pundits and even people like the Bishop of Oxford.

Making it clear that Blair lied over many issues including the decisions to go to war is a very important point. It has to be made clear as he's STILL claiming that it was a decision he made in good faith.

I'm sorry if you feel that a lesson to teach kids is that you can lie your way out of a situation and shouldn't be criticized for it, but I'm more sorry for your kids who are unlikely to grow up with any ability to criticize or take criticizm

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.
