    I think Farage is the only politician ive ever seen enjoying a beer and a fag, like a normal bloke.
    :rofl: You're easily pleased. I guess poor old Charles Kennedy was ahead of his time.

    The question is interesting but only up to a point.The real question for me is does the system have our own interests at heart? Is the system capable of producing change for the general good? Is the sytem itself readily accessible to change ? I would say the answer to all 3 is no.

    They obviously have the best interests of our country at our heart. If their power rests on the stability of the state, the economic prosperity of the people and other such factors then it makes no sense to exclude such things from their thoughts. How they go around fixing this problem is where any troubles will ultimately lie and where the general public finds their grievances.
