Does it matter if people don't vote?

I’m about to write a piece called ‘why vote?’

I reckon that it doesn’t matter if a lot of people don’t vote. I’d prefer the lazy, indecisive and fickle not to have the casting vote in elections.

What do you think?

I believe you. I'm sure you would much prefer that elections were settled by swivel-eyed, political fanatics with no social life. Forgive me if I take a pass on that one.

They already do. Ever read/see the Speak Your Brains vox pops around hustings time?

That's my point. Everyone is wringing their hands about how to get the people that take part in these things to actually go to the polling booth.

I've seen your blog. Imitation is indeed the highest form of flattery.

Thank you.
