Not Apathetic

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

They're not voting because...

I voted once. In 1997. I voted Labour...

In voted once. In 1997. I voted Labour because, like milions of others, I realised what a dreadful mistake I'd made 4 years earlier by not voting Labour then and allowing the Tories to win yet another election. Millions of us voted Labour in '97 for this reason - not because we thought Tony Blair was great, but just because he wasn't John Major. Unfortunately, Blair took this as a huge demonstration of support, it went to his head, and he became just as bad as the man we voted him in to replace. So, I won't make that mistake again, I'll vote again when someone comes along who I think deserves my demonstration of support. None of the current shower of shysters even comes close.

Gavin replies: What was so bad with John Major? He seemed like a pleasant, down to earth bloke. He even liked a bit of currie.

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.
