Not Apathetic

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

They're not voting because...

As a democratic state(sic) we need to...

As a democratic state(sic) we need to vote or be forced to vote.
HOWEVER, we should have the opportunity to tick a "None of the above" box. What happens when "None of the above" get elected, as it surely would?
Now THATS a question!
Sarah Kennedy has just given birth to a new son; congratulations. It is it ironic that to do this she had go through the stress and pain of being "in Labour"? - I know how she feels after eight years of Labour.
The Conservatives don't believe they can win, and nor should they. It is plain they have not learned a thing in the last eight years. All they have done it bury their differences on Europe for the moment.
Vote at the election? WHY BOTHER!

john replies: Hey. just had a wonderful idea ...

If we follow the Oz model, FORCE people to go to a ballot box and fine them (say) sixty quid for not doing so ...

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.
