Yes, read Webb this morning, would also add Jamie Bartlett to those who have spoken out about Brand..

To vote or not to vote, always 'thrown' mine by voting for the Greens but have always noted that it is the "the same narrow elite drawn from the same narrow caste of actors" to quote Bartlett..
I can't agree with the logic of not voting, we just get the worst of the bunch in power, the sea change needing to happen is our choice, but not forgetting that canditates have to pay upfront to stand in their constituency.
And to answer Astral Cat, revolution will bring the forces both military and police to 'stand down' the protestors it will not be a pretty affair, even though a revolution is needed, but as Bartlett says "are we not in a pre-revolutionary stage" just look at the present policies being pulled apart..
Don't know the answer sadly...
