political participation in this country is laughable. Because of our poor electoral system and low voter turnout only 22% of people actually voted for the previous Labour government.
Believe me there are countries that are called ‘democracies’ where it’s much worse …

I don't know what we're voting for.
Whether or not the current electoral system used to elect MPs for Parliament, and thus elect a leading party to form a government (First Past the Post), should change to the Alternative Vote system.

Doesn't detract from the fact its laughable. It's hardly effort to vote. People died for universal suffrage, the least we could do is exercise it.

I haven't voted for two years consecutively now because all parties are corrupt hence the vote on AV/first-past-the-post is rendered useless.

Don't waste time with politics because its not in the publics control, any party that will form a government will tax the living day lights out off you once they're in power.

Don't 'not vote', spoil your vote! At least your voice of dissent has been heard then; if enough people spoil their vote the election has to be run again and again until you get candidates that people want to elect!

Do not worry, I shall go down to the Polling station and make a decision between spoiling it or No while I'm there.

And also Conservative.
