Brand Endorsement


Compared to the buffet of neo-liberal homogeneity that we chewed through in 2015, the possibility of voting for a politician that offers change seems oddly exotic.

Jeremy Corbyn has somehow been in politics for decades with his integrity perfectly preserved, like his much derided beard has functioned as hairy formaldehyde for his principles.

Theresa May has chosen to make this election about ‘personality’ rather than principles, which seems increasingly unwise.

The delirious sycophant that had her ear when they were plotting this smash ‘n’ grab clearly saw Theresa as some kind of female Freddie Mercury set to dazzle voters from the podium rather than a vindictive librarian drawn by Quentin Blake.


Jeremy Corbyn Won’t Be Perfect, But He Has The Qualities I Want In A Strong And Stable Leader (Russell Brand, Huffington Post)

    [SMUG] Yeah the last week or two have been very personally satisfying considering how long I’ve been saying May is an incompetent clown and Corbyn is very capable. [\SMUG] Seriously, she’s a car crash of a politician. Worst I’ve seen in my lifetime. Worse than IDS and Hague. It’s mind blowing the amount of smart people who rated her. Just shows you the power of the media. “Unelectable”.

      Not sure I’d say that Corbyn is overly capable he just looks great when compared to her. She is awful as seen by the fact that the tories are desperate to hide her as much as possible. That looks to be coming back to bite them. The tory backing press are getting desperate as well. What the hell does the IRA have to do with an UK election in 2017?

      1. MoyestWithExcitement

        The IRA line is particularly ridiculous considering May has sold weapons to Saudi Arabia and Bahrain who sponsor ISIS, so Corbyn talking to Gerry Adams about getting rid of their guns 30 years ago is bad but May selling weapons to people who fund terrorists that blew up 20 children last week isn’t even worth mentioning. Also, Corbyn is as capable as any politician in the UK right now. Who’s more capable than him? Boris Picanninnies Johnson? David Davies?

          You really hit the nail sometimes, Moyest. I feel I need to point that out whenI s^#% on you usually.

          Can we all just stop picking fights?…..Ye scamps.

          1. Yep

            Apologies, jusayinlike. I get wrapped up in it too…

            ” The Irish Failed State” or “loony left” or “commie” or “Tory”…. They are all just ineffective labels that stunt discussion IMO.

    Every time I want to dislike Russell Brand, he comes out with something elegant and well-written. Damn you, Russell Brand!

    The one thing I’d nitpick is his desire to let ‘ordinary people’ off the hook (‘ordinary people are pissed off. They’re pissed off with being lied to…’). This is something common to a lot of commentators on the left, attributing some inherent moral and ethical superiority to the faceless ‘working class’.

    The truth is that there’s still a very sizeable cohort of those people who voted for Trump, who voted for Brexit, who still rail against ‘innigints and forriners taking our jobs’ and ‘invading Britain’. They still need to be brought round to the idea that a vote for Corbyn is actually a vote in their own interests, and not be patronised to.

    Brand is a moron. Its pretty easy to be a socialist / communist when you have millions of quid. Why doesn’t he give all his money away and live like the poor.

    Theresa May is going to win, and I’m glad. People are worried jobs will leave under brexit, and that is up in the air, 50/50 either way. However 100% they’ll go under Corbyn, he’d change his tune pretty quick once he realises all the rich who pay all of the tax have left to stop themselves being raped by his policies.

      Funny how people complain that poor socialists are only looking for handouts but then say that rich socialists should give all their money away. I’d imagine he has the same politics now as he had when he was skint drug addict.

      The mind of the right wing bootlicking serf in all its glory. ‘All glory to The Benevolent Producers.’

    edalicious – yeah, let the rich socialists looks after the poor ones and leave good ol capitalists like myself away with not paying taxes, be grand, perfect world.

    Moyest – hah, ahh yeah believing people should work for their own money makes me a serf, good lad.

    1. Yep

      The accumulation of wealth by some has very little to do with what is traditionally known as “work” by the vast majority.
