If Voting Changed Anything, They'd Make It Illegal!

Love him or hate him: Russell Brand, comedian and actor has taken discussion on voting and capitalism to another level following his appearance in News Night when he declared 'I've never voted, never will'.

Brand slated the current capitalist system expressing just how millions of working class people feel about successive left/right governments, their electoral system, their democracy, their capitalist system as well as those left 'alternatives' who continue to churn out the notion that our class can achieve real change or revolution through their ballots.

For an insight in to how we as anarchists view the current system and in particular the voting system follow the links below.
