    Studying History and always having an interest in politics and current affairs I used to always keep up to date with everything. But now I get that saturated and fed up with stuff all uni year, in the summertime now I tend to just go 'meh' and switch off from it all.

    Indeed, you should see her face when we play the rauol moat game!

    The rauol moat game is when you and a friend shout the fearsome gingers name in turn, each time increasing the decibels.

    i.e. is not bothered at all by what happens in the world of UK politics.

    ...and why?

    - Not interesting enough?
    - Difficult to see how political issues affect you on day-to-day basis?
    - Too comfortable to be incentivised to do anything
    - Too busy to do anything?
    - Feel that your input would make no difference?
    - Got more important things to do?
    - Got other interests that are far more fun?
    - Telly/computer games/other forms of entertainment?
    - A general feeling of "meh"?
    Perpetual depression.

    Politics is just as faddy as everything else, but due to being so dull it's considered some sort of esoteric intellectual interest.

    At fear of cradling into yet another manic-depressive episode, I've chosen to be a lot more apathetic towards the monotony depicted through current global affairs. I feel the lack of stability in the political sector of this country and other affluent nations would also further deteriorate my dwindling faith in humanity. If something happens, I'll let the offset of events that come as a result let me know through hitting me in the face.

    Not saying I don't care, but damn, this gloomy weather is bad enough.

    i think people reckon politics is just men in suits sitting in Parliament, and talking about things over their heads. It's not really people's fault, since most human beings are shallow. It's human nature lol.... even still, all human societies have governance in some sense. if we accept that society has rules, then somebody has to make and enforce the rules.
