Many people think voting is a waste of time because whatever party or MP is voted in they will be a 'shower of bastards', so what's the point?


Many people?


32% didnt vote in 2017. So roughly a third of the country.


As per my original post. What's the point in voting for the 'main' parties when it will be same shit, different day. The UK needs a party in power that has a totally different approach towards things in a good way.

Interesting little story....

The result of a nationwide referendum has been overturned for the first time in modern Switzerland's history.

The poll, held in February 2016, asked the country's voters whether married couples and co-habiting partners should pay the same tax.

Voters rejected the proposal, with 50.8% against and 49.2% in favour.

But the supreme court has now voided the result on the grounds that voters were not given full information, and the vote must be re-run.

The information provided to the electorate was "incomplete" and therefore "violated the freedom of the vote", the court ruled.

During the referendum campaign, the Swiss government told voters just 80,000 of married couples were paying more tax than couples living together.

The true figure was almost half a million, the government later said.


So, could this happen here?

The result of a nationwide referendum has been overturned for the first time in modern UK history.

The poll, held in June 2016, asked the country's voters whether the UK should remain in the EU.

Voters rejected the proposal, with 52% against and 48% in favour.

But the supreme court has now voided the result on the grounds that voters were not given full information, and the vote must be re-run.

The information provided to the electorate was "incomplete" and therefore "violated the freedom of the vote", the court ruled.

During the referendum campaign, Vote Leave told voters that we pay £350m a week to the EU, and this money should go to the NHS instead.

The true figure was almost half that, and the NHS would get fuck all the government later said.

Short answer to the question is yes it could, but should have done long ago because as time has gone by, that's lost it's initial impetus.

A50 should never have been triggered until the electorate were made fully aware of what they were getting, and what they were losing. That the whole Brexit issue has blundered blindly on even with an ongoing criminal investigation into Leave campaign fund sources, is criminal itself.

Cake and eat it doesn't work. People voted for a better deal than we have now.

There wasn't anything about 'deals' on the ballot paper though - it was just a two box choice, Leave EU or Remain EU. Misinformation pre-referendum only came more to notice post-referendum, when it was too late and the damage done.

So go and spoil the ballot paper, let them know you are willing to get up off your arse and vote if and when you want to.
Apathy isn’t an answer.

In a general election there's nothing about policy on the ballot paper either - just the names of the candidates
I think that the idea is that you read the manifestos before you vote

Ah yes - Vote Leave's manifesto

Only released 10 days before the referendum.

Contained no reference to the Customs Union or the Irish Border, although Leave's leaders repeatedly claimed we WOULD NOT leave the CU.

While senior leave campaigners including former London mayor Boris Johnson and justice secretary Michael Gove insisted they wanted Prime Minister David Cameron to remain in office after a vote to leave, the campaign demanded six new Bills from the government.

The Brexit manifesto included pledges to limit the power of European courts, divert money towards the NHS and halt free movement.

New laws will include a new Finance Bill to abolish the five per cent rate of VAT on household energy bills, a Free Trade Bill to restore the government’s power to control its own trade policy, and a Bill to repeal the 1972 European Communities Act, in a bid to limit the jurisdiction of European courts.

This lot was said to amount to £111bn of spending pledges.

Here is the manifesto
http://www.voteleavetakecontrol.org/why_vote_leave.html

The main points were:

Stop paying money to Brussels
End to free movement
Stop ECJ jurisdiction over UK courts
Negotiate our own trade deals

That's what the leavers voted for
If we stay in either the Customs Union, or the Single Market, none of these manifesto commitments will be met
That's why any deal that includes either of these options will be a betrayal of what the majority voted for.
