8 Out of 10 Cats: Series 18 episode 6. Aired 10 November 2014. I always wondered why so many people were agreeing with Russell Brands view of politics. Finally the wonderful Sean Lock says what I've been thinking for ages.
Sean Lock: If his [Russell Brand] book is called Revolution he shouldn't be out there trying to sell it, he should be try to encourage people to steal it. Shouldn't he? He has back peddled so much now, he started out saying "Don't vote, it's stupid pointless to vote, don't vote". But he's now come out, Russell Brand and said, "no, what I'm saying is actually is 'who am I supposed to vote for?'". So if you reduce that to what he is actually saying; it's what everyone says at every bus stop or newsagent "Huu, politician, what are they like hay?" "How did that lot get in, I don't know, bloody hell".
Melanie Chisholm: In his defence, we all bitch and moan about the government because they are shit, they have been for years and it's getting worse. How are we ever going to change it unless we come together and all stop moaning at bus stops.
Sean Lock: The main problem is now that people get the politicians that they deserve because they don't take any interest in politics. And him saying stuff to people who are disaffected already and aren't engaged with the political process "Don't vote" is the most moronic self serving pathetic bit of attention seeking wank that he has ever spewed out of his mouth in history.
