If you do not vote, you absolutely forfeit the right to complain about the goverment, council or anything about the adminstration of this country. If you don’t agree with any of the candidates, then go into the polling booth and mess up your card. That get’s counted, and reduces the mandate of the winner.

Listening to people who complain about the government, and then admit they have not voted really makes my blood boil. Generally accompanied by the comment that “..all politicians are as bad as each other”, “I don’t agree with any of the major parties” etc.. My view: Do something or shutup. Vote or go march on Whitehall. Vote Monster raving Loony party if you want, vote for the mad independent who wants to ban cars, but whatever you do today, go and vote.
