Not Apathetic

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

They're not voting because...

Because in my 40 odd years, I've never yet seen anything important change as a result of which particular party gets in. Not the things that matter to me anyway, health, education, and yob/violent crime. All there seems to have been in my lifetime is a deterioration of the kind of standards in all areas of concern to me -" Joe Public" that once made this country great.

If a party comes along that promises zero tolerance to yobs, poor standards in schools, dirty hospitals, and scum wittering on about their "rights" (to hell with the rights of the rest of us) - they'll get my vote. Find me somebody will the balls to take it on and the guts to see it through - and I'd be there. None of them, living their rarified lives remote from the general reality, gives a toss about how it is at grass roots level - they don't need to because they don't suffer like we do.

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.
