A survey by the market research organisation Survation looked into why people don't vote:

In answer to another question in the same survey: "If a UK general election was held tomorrow, would you be likely to vote or not?", the survey showed 56% of people who didn't vote in 2010 said they would vote if an election was held tomorrow. A severe case of non-voters remorse.

The main reason for not voting is people "don't believe my vote will make any difference".

Actually their missing votes make a huge difference. Elections are decided by people who don't vote. Election figures show that no party since 2001 won more than a quarter of the electorate's votes. 

Ironically, despite being the voters who decide elections, people who don't vote are never the winners.
