Not Apathetic

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

They're not voting because...

The government as a whole is an inefficient...

The government as a whole is an inefficient waste of public resources and their budgets should be seriously reassessed, with some staffing cuts so that the money we give in tax actually makes it to the teachers (currently, the cleaners at my school make more than the teachers per year) or medical staff. We do not need IT projects run by politicians, committies just delay the process and add so many extra layers of incompetance that the end result is worthless. Some of the deadweight in local councils could be cut back (I know a person who's dad just walks from office to office all day without actually doing anything, and gets paid for it).
In short, sort the bloody mess out and I will consider voting. As it is, I intend to spoil my ballot.

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.
