Not Apathetic

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

They're not voting because...

Whoever I vote for, we will still be...

Whoever I vote for, we will still be stuck with a bloated bureaucracy; we will still be paying over-inflated prices for fuel; we will still likely be part of another bloated bureaucracy (the European Union); and we will still be stuck with a bunch of legislation left over from successive Tory and Labour governments that seeks to repress the people of this country. Big Brother watching you? You bet...

Pauly replies: Let's see... imprisonment without trial (at the whim of the Executive - anyone deemed 'a threat to national security' can be subjected to house arrest without trial)? The forthcoming ID cards, supposed to 'stop terrorists' - yet it will not be necessary for those who are in the process of seeking asylum to possess one? We also have one of the highest proportion of CCTV and road traffic cameras per head in Western society; by way of the latter local authorities are making a small fortune with, in many instances, little improvement in road traffic incident statistics.

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.
