Compulsory Voting

I see that Kevin Meagher from the Labour Uncut blog has called for compulsory voting, and said everyone should be made to take part in elections or face a fine.

Does Meagher not get "democracy"?

Not voting or registering to vote is a political statement in itself; every bit as valid as voting Tory, Labour, Liberal etc.

By making voting compulsory Meagher would be damaging the fabric of democracy itself.

    People should be able to decide whether to vote or not, as you say Ken, that is democracy.....The real irony is this; we go around the world imposing democracy onto other nations and yet, here in the UK we are losing ours.

    I suspect this is yet another example of increasing the tax take.....These so called fines would just act as a new tax for Nanny to waste. When Nanny uses the criminal justice system as an extension to HMRC, both are brought into disrepute.

    If Nanny was to introduce compulsory voting, I would say a "None of the above" option would need to be a necessity.

  2. If our illustrious leaders are concerned at the low turn out for elections, they should take a long, hard look at themselves, and ask themselves why they are held in such disrepute. It is ironic, is it not, that whilst bleating about "democracy" in Ukraine, Iraq and everywhere else, they do not practice it here, as the British people have been consistently and repeatedly denied an opportunity of a say on whether they wish to remain in the E.U. I call that hypocrisy!

    1. Indeed......All we really get in reality is the chance to change the suit in Number Ten; Nu Labour, Blue Labour or FibDums; it's akin to choosing whether to be shot, hung or drowned.

      In a population, rapidly approaching Seventy Million, it is a sad reflection on our country, that Clegg, Cameron and Milliband are the best we can come up with.

      I have been a life long Conservative but ceased my support and backing for the party when Mr Cameron took over.

      The fundamental problem with the party system, is that the party leader holds far too much power. Politicians wishing to climb the career ladder have to rely on the benevolence of that party leader so few, if any, will say no to their leader, hence why a Conservative Party is acting like Progressive Marxists.

      No real choice means no real democracy.

    2. I have no problem, in theory, with a compulsary vote. It must come with a pair of binding attachments though.

      (a) No Vote/None (at ballet box)

      (b) A majority govt cannot be formed unless more than 50% of the votes are in favour of the party and (a) counts.

    I believe voting is compulsory in North Korea! Enough said!

    (The previous post was also mine, but I forgot to put "Lord of Atlantis" in the name section.

    My Aussie cousin, who is compelled to vote and is supposed to place 18 candidates in order of prefence, solves the problem by writing "bugger the lot of you" on the paper.
