I am definitely going to vote; I have even decided who I am going to vote for. Unfortunately, I am making a choice on which party do I believe is least worst rather than which is best, because there is no best. I just do not trust politicians not to put their own/their party's interests ahead of the interests of society as a whole.
Russell Brand is a self adulating pillock but it does feel as if there is something wrong with the way democracy is working in the UK today. This is in part a result of the rise of the professional politician and the effective disenfranchisement of a large part of the electorate because the education system favours the middle and upper classes regarding achievement. Do I know how that should be fixed? No, I don't.
