All the people I know, who are making poor excuses about how they aren't voting tomorrow, are really annoying me. I don't care who you vote for, as long as you do. Even if you spoil your ballot, at least you will have gone out there and done something. A vote is only wasted if you don't bother to.

It just seems stupid to say "well it doesn't affect me" - of course it does, it affects everybody! How can it not? Especially when most of the people saying that are the ones who are going to University this year or next - how does increasing University top up fees not affect you, for example? Anyone who says that is bullshitting completely. How can the long waiting lists on the NHS not affect you? For all you know, you or someone you care about may be affected by it in the near future. I've had a friend go into hospital just this week and need an operation - at least his was only postponed for a day! It could've been much worse.

"No one is worth voting for" - not voting isn't going to make any difference to that, though, is it? There's no way to tell between who was not voting because of a lack of suitable candidates and who's not voting because they're just too lazy to take 5mins out of their day to decide the fate of the country for the next 5yrs. You aren't making a stand against anything, despite what you may believe.

"I don't know anything about politics" - then find out! It's not like it's hard to find any information on each party's policies, especially now more than ever. I recommend this site (thanks Dom :D).

This is really starting to make me angry. Idiots.
