Not Apathetic

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

They're not voting because...

I'll vote for a party that comes up with ...

I'll vote for a party comes up with a bill which says they get sacked if they break their promises in the election run-up. Promises need to be measurable and within a certain time frame - if they don't achieve the promises - they've either lied or failed - both will mean the sack for them. I somehow don't see a bill like this happening in the near future.

piersh replies: If they break their promises don't vote for them next time round. There are consequences for unpopular politicians, they lose their jobs.

Paul replies: The threat of not getting elected again in 4 years time when they have a fresh bout of "who can be the biggest liar" just isn't good enough. How many jobs have you been in where you get a "chance" of losing your job after majorly lying - 4 years later?

All I'm asking for is for them to take responsibility for their actions (or inactions)!

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.
