None of the above – Do unhappy consultees ever feel like disenchanted voters at an Election?
If we lived in Spain…or India…or Poland, we could vote for ‘None of the Above’ or NOTA.
It is also the title of a book published last month by journalist Rick Edwards who specifically seeks to persuade younger voters that it is worth taking part in the forthcoming General Election, even if there is little of appeal in any of the parties’ manifestos. Whether the prospect of spoiling your ballot paper is sufficiently attractive to persuade our youth to vote is another matter – but it certainly prompts some serious thinking.
What if this was available to consultees when they respond to a consultation?
