Letter: Big win for the no-vote party

Sir: I was alarmed by the letter from Dr Nanu Grewal (29 April) which implied that we should consider making voting compulsory. This would be a fundamental infringement of civil liberties.

There are people (I am not one of them) who feel that all the political parties are equally bad. They have the right to express their views by not voting. As for the apathetic, it is up to the political parties to convince them that they're worth voting for.
