Not Apathetic

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

Election campaigns are nothing but highly...

Election campaigns are nothing but highly publicised smoke-screens led by an astounding amount of spin. I have never voted but have kept a close eye on politics. It seems to me that no matter which party gains office, hardly any of their promises ever come to fruition. If on the rare occassion do we see an improvement in one of the parties "target areas", it is often the case that behind the scenes and covered under a large dark cloth is another area of society that suffers. After all, in a carefully balanced economy such as ours, how can you increase funding in one area of society without taking that funding from another area? In closing, politicians are overpaid wind bags who dictate our country's policies and practices to benefit their own ideals and ambitions.

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.
