I'm from the UK and voted only once when i was 18...never, ever again, especially as the NWO agenda plays out.
I am now proud to say i'm a political atheist.
Voting is just a spectacle to make people believe they are contributing to democracy, which died the very day pen was put to paper empowering not 'the people' but the elite who rule within.
My reasons to question voting/democracy:
1. Bush got into power...not once but twice!!!!
2. Obama came from nowhere and Ron Paul was chastised by the MSM as the elections drew nearer.
3. Brown hasn't faced any kind of election or referendum, so why in God's name is he in office.
4. 2million people protested in London against Iraq invasion; fat lot of good that did.
5. Finally, the awesome research done by Bev Harris, an housewife who exposed the software hacking they did for polling station machines. Overview video here. (Bev's site here).
If i was forced to vote with a gun to my head, i'd vote Green party.

Thanks for your explanation and the video too - what crocks :shk:
i am truly shocked people, we are not happy right? We want things to get better, yes? Doing nothing will not get you to that point, if you think voting is pointless, what do you suggest we do? I think we NEED to get a party in we can trust - hence why i was hoping a 'Peoples Party' for the people by the people would be formed. Truth is then, we don't care enough. Maybe i have it all wrong i thought that the seats that the councils get make up the majority in the house - just imagine if, and i know i'm dreamin here, a 'peoples party' got into every council in the country - not likely, but if it did - what could they do about it then. Wouldn't that be like overthrowin the government legally? am i just really, really naive - please be honest - i am starting to loses faith in our nation.

We (ATS members) need to pick a party or independent candidate who we like the sound of and like the policies and all vote for for them.
The way the system is set up.... only either of the two main parties will ever win.....we should start our own party.

First off, let may say shame on the OP. Your 28ys old and you don't understand the basic principals of the political parties in the u.k.
Honestly is it any wonder Britain is the way it is.
