    • I have a soft spot for him.

      Hence the repeat appearances :)

        I suggest you keep it soft – especially if he sidled up to you in the gents loos at a pub.

    Kinda like a riff on Monty Pythons Dennis the Constitutional Peasant.

  • Steve (North Shore)

    3 min and he digressed. Must be someone elses fault. Drugged fuckwits breed drugged fuckwits,and the whole World is going to be taken over by drugged fuckwits.
    Socialists vote for Socialists

      He makes a good point at 6:50 though.

    I met Russell once. Quite crazy but does have a point.

    • tspoon

      Dunno, what was that point? Russell got all shitty when he got asked for an idea, any idea. His only idea is not to vote.

  • Mr_V4

    Pity he didn’t get asked about Nigel Farage.

  • jaundiced

    Disagree with him fundamentally about many things. Profit is evil because by definition it creates inequality. Therefore tax the rich and redistribute wealth. Well, I suppose that will kill off any incentive to make a profit and lets see where that gets us.
    But at the same time he is brilliant and incisive

    Russel; an engaging and vociferous speaker offering no solutions reminds me of the old adage ” if you come to me without a solution you’re part of the problem”
    The underlying truth is, were governed by a political class that is more interested in retaining the seat of power than addressing the issues that Russell put forward.

  • RAS

    He’s funny but his political philosophy is utterly adolescent.
