Not Apathetic

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

They're not voting because...

Simply put there is no one to vote for...

Simply put there is no one to vote for. Were simply democratically electing dictators. The party we elect will have no intention of doing what we want.

Torys are all about making the rich richer, Labour are no longer anything that could be considered a workers party, and are fighting with the Torys over who can sell our remaining services off to big business. Lib Dems. polices are reactionary to the other two main parties, and have no real policy of their own, and will say what ever will help them get votes from the other two parties. The green party are not all that green, and have offered no real solutions to the problems that big business is causing.

BNP, are just as bad as the above, except they have the added bonus of being racist as well. UKIP whole argument is "lets leave Europe", and stop all the nasty foreigners from coming, stop all the immigrates that are running our hospitals and care homes for pathetically and sometimes illegally low wages.

Democratic control needs to taken by the workers, like the htttp:// is for. However they are only standing in a few seats, which doesn't include my area.

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.
