If you live in a safe labour seat like I do, voting for anyone other than Labour is ineffective, so spoiling it is at least some form of protest.

kizzy, everyone has a right to vote, not vote, spoil their vote, what you are doing is trying to guilt people into voting, thatís not what the suffragettes fought for, they fought for the same rights as men who could choose to vote or not as they saw fit

spoiled votes are recorded in the voting figures, apathy is recorded in the turn out.

I will not vote for people i do not believe in, its simple. That is my democratic right.

No I'm not trying to guilt trip you, I'm stating my view on this if you don't like it that's not my issue.

The suffragettes did not fight to not vote imo. They wanted to have a voice, not be voluntarily silent.

Exactly it's stupid & pointless ,just stay home if you don't want to vote like what other people do . Why trail to the polling station just to scribble through them all like a child with crayon .

a vote for the tories is a vote for a xenophobic dictatorship

mass immigration = mass deportation


we don't want britain to fall back into the same route as well the Nazi's back in world war 2

I wouldn't say it was apathy, more complacency. If you don't agree with the people in power enough to vote to keep them in then vote for someone else, even if they have no hope of winning, use your vote as a protest dont waste it. Remember the monster raving loony party? Many would vote for them as they were disaffected by the main parties but they still had a vote counted.
To me if you really can't bring yourself to vote for one of the parties in the running this at least makes some sense as a protest vote.

It's just a photo op that's screamingly obvious.
