There’s a rush of non-voters in the United Kingdom. It’s a trend. Like using Snapchat. Something to show other people that the other people will take on-board very briefly, then forget. Not voting in the UK is supposed to show that the person is so angry about politics that they wont support any potential government. The obvious solution is for the campaigning parties to stop caring about the non-voters.
Sure, it might result in policies that favour the elderly and the racists, and that help rich bankers, rich media consortiums and rich super-brand companies, but if they are the only people who vote then the voters will get what they want. Of course, the non-voters believe this already happens, so if they think it is bad now what obvious solution is there to make it better?
They could form their own political party and vote for that. Of course that would require some thought. Instead they could riot again in a more orderly fashion to cut away a piece of the country for themselves. They could take the north but the type of people who whinge by not voting would grizzle for something warmer in the south, like Plymouth. And so there, in Plymouth, they can start their own little society where they’ll have a non-voted head of their country to control the required logistics. They can have an autocracy rather than a democracy. See how that works for them.
