Not Apathetic

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

They're not voting because...

I am not voting because I live in a safe so called "New Labour" seat. New Labour has lied, lied and lied again on just about every subject from the war to the NHS and back again. They are really the Tories anyway having over a period of years stolen all their policies. The Tories are the "New Stupid Party". From the word "off" in this election they could not keep their collective mouths shut and the Howard Flight incident proves this. They have no one with any credibility and are quite transparently an arrogant bunch of nobodies. The Liberal Democrats.....give me a break. I can't think of anything to say about them, which sums them all up really! I have completely lost confidence in politicians and UK politics which I believe is decending into the US model as the years go on. Taking one look at whom the US elected twice as president I am filled full of contempt and gloom for our future and what gets elected next. I think there is a well known saying that "The problem with most political jokes is that they get elected". Whoever coined the phrase was plainly a person of wisdom and vision!

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.
