azad replies: Your constituency may not be marginal now and will never be if you just accept defeat and not vote.

You may be surprised how just a few like you can change the political map of this country if you get off you arses and vote.

Democracy is just a theory, unless you put it into practice, no one else will do it for you.

Macarnie replies: A small body of determined spirits, fired by an unquenchable faith in their mission can alter the course of history.( Gandhi) The state of doing nothing ,might be for some , a nice state of affairs; they will wallow in self pity when treated badly, due to their lack of interest in their future. They must do something positive, or forever be miserable.Thought and action are two parts of the same vehicle, with which to go forward as a human being.
If you do not care about your wellbeing: take the consequences.

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.
