MP's here are about to get and 11% pay rise making them up to £74,000 pa, plus their expenses. That is going to cause some strife, in a nation which been told we are all in it together and must tighten our belts.

The candidates for these two parties are selected at constituency meetings, but if they elect one who does not suit the party leaders they will have one appointed. That isn't exactly democracy.
So the voters ultimately only get to chose from carefully selected candidates, so which ever way you vote it will be more of the same. If you don't vote it will be more of the same also. Small wonder people are not bothering to vote.
It doesn't really matter if people don't vote. Society never changes through the ballot box any way.
