WHY I DIDN’T VOTE …
by Ross Sharp
… in the Brisbane Local Government elections in April, for which I shall be fined $50.00 if my reason is not found to be a valid one …
“Dear Electoral Commission,
I am single, employed, have no children, and rent a flat. Each week I take the garbage bin out, and bring it back in, and this has been my sole engagement with local government over these last seven years, and so far, it’s all worked out just dandy. I deliberately chose not to vote because I did not want to be the one butterfly that might flap its wings in Brazil and bugger up the weather for everyone in Florida, so to speak.
Keep up the fine work.
