    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"?

    It's amazing the amount of slack jawed morons we elect every year, it's like the blind leading the blind round here.

    Ed Miliband scares me, there is something of the night about him:



    I think it's important that you have an enquiring mind, and a desire to learn about how the political system works and its impact on you as a citizen.

    I don't really care about that sort of thing cos it seems to go in one ear and out the other and I just don't like politics. Unfortunately I have to care a bit (particularly about current affairs) as both are coming up in final year exams atm.

    Lol, thought neg would be expected. Can't be interested in and like everything!

    I quite enjoy politics, it's more and more like show business for ugly people every election. :rolleyes:

      I care about the main things. I wouldn't say I care about the things in politics that do not apply to me though so i'm pretty much split on what interests me in politics.

      Me! :awesome:



      Obviously, I'm kidding



      On a serious note, I think a lot of people are interested in political issues but just not politics per se.

      Most of my friends go on about how they hate politics. But if I start some sort of political debate with them without overtly mentioning the dreaded word, they'll usually end up subjecting me to some passionate rhetoric that is most definitely political.

      I think the point is that everybody cares about politics, whether they realise it or not. Simply because it affects you, no matter what. People are forced to take an interest at some level or other. Unfortunately, there seems to be some "anti-politics" trend, by which it is cool to have "**** All of Them" or some bull**** on your facebook page under "political views". I say *******s to that.

      I personally don't care about politics because I don't understand it, though not through lack of trying. It's just not my thing - I'm a science-y gal anyway, I do get my History/Politics mate to dumb it down for me. But, nah, I don't care for it, even then :P

      I'm infinitely more interested in history, specifically the Viking Age and Migration Period, than current affairs and so given the choice between watching the news or, for example, reading a saga I'd sooner the latter. Besides, every slimey politician elected is the same public schoolboy, smarmy douchebag clone anyway
