Sadly I don't think it's that easy. If no one voted then I'm 99.9% sure the prior government would automatically still remain in place as there'd be no change in seats etc...and in lieu of a new vote, the old results would be the next considered - though as far as I'm aware this has never happened so isn't enshrined in law to be the case, it's just an uncodified response so my interpretation may well be wrong.
Parties have repeatedly proven they lie in manifestos, promises etc while MPs have generally proven themselves to think they're above the law, corrupt and the whole thing seems more centred around helping mates, taking bribes or pleasing private party donors than serving the public at the moment so the public actively denying themselves what precious little say they have is just shooting themselves in the foot.
