The 'Stepford Leaders' Debate
As a fully paid up politics junkie, DIY SOS was a far better bet.
The whole farce was a snapshot of how the politicians and hacks treat us.
The Audience were compelled to sit there in stony silence listening to how these three idiots were going to spend THEIR money, Dear God, they were also wired up to some machine to allow MORI to gauge their reaction.
I did not look at the 'Leaders' I looked at the faces of the audience, how many did you count chewing their lips in suppressed rage.
Alistair Stewart (allowed out from his 'Stop Police you are wonderful' persona) was the ref. Why o why him ?
The questiontime format is far better, where if an ego driven politician is talking
bilge, the audience erupts into a cacophony of rage and groans.
This was a beauty contest without the beauties, a complete and utter waste of time.
We the people should be partaking in OUR democracy, not sitting in a stony silence wired up to a machine. We get just one chance to vote in a rigged system and we are told to collectively told shut up and be quiet. No wit,No style,No flair - sanitised to death.
This is a dystopia from 1984 and bladerunner. The Prisoner remake starts Saturday, how apt.
