Glad we showed them the door last night.

Such an awful awful club.

Will you ever just fuck off with this shite Smallman?

Liverpool FC are everything you cunts couldn't possibly buy and that's what chews you up.

Or shake each others hand and agree to disagree.

How can I agree to disagree with someone who can't even express his point cogently?

You still haven't answered my question about what you propose as an alternative to the current system.

In fact you weaseled out of that massively.

Put up or shut up you massive fucking twat.

Well, it does appear liquitech believes voting to be a bad thing and the country should be run by a cabal of "enlightened" individuals such as him and Russell Brand.

He backed himself into a corner, crapped on about a few loser contacts running for office, called me a weasel a few times and then impaled his arse on a spike of his own making. Goodnight.

Really, I don't get the point you're making.

I am simply asking you to clarify.

Again, you'll have to help me here liquitech.

What's your point? People vote there, people vote in the UK? Voting is bad?

The political structure is different, the voting system is the same. Either you're being a pedant or you're utterly clueless. Either way, a weasel..

The voting system is not the same. They have a presidential election. We essentially vote for the local representative of a party, and the majority party takes office. That's a significant difference.

But continue to twat on like a Happy Shopper-version of Russell Brand if you want.

Jesus. Confirmed. You've lost touch with reality out there wherever you are..

Of course it's completely different.

Pointless even bothering with you.

What about next year in the US when you'll have a whole block of voters who'll vote for Sarah Palin if she runs. Every 4 years the brainwashed are fooled into thinking the 'other guy' is the real answer. That's where the system is broken...it's not the system itself, it's the participants...

The US system is completely different. It's more similar to the French system than it is to our system.

I don't. I see that there are flaws in the system but I maintain that it is still open enough for people to enter and make a difference.

Explain how's it open then, Dave...explain to us how the everyday guy in the street can make a difference when voting?

It's open for you to stand and offer something different. It costs a grand but you get your deposit back if you get above a certain threshold.

..Politicians in power fight over contributions from wealthy donors and corporate connections, the biggest pig in the pen gets all the food...that's how elections are won...

...then along come savvy voters like yourself and you think you're making a difference

I don't. I see that there are flaws in the system but I maintain that it is still open enough for people to enter and make a difference.

You're calling me a 'weasel' for offering an answer that you don't like, then you won't even engage with me?

Who's the weasel?

No, sorry, you did say "When have things EVER changed for the better?"

I simply answered your question.

You said "when have things EVER changed for the better".

Sorry if you meant something quite different, perhaps you should have said.

When have things ever changed for the better if not for the privileged few?

You know that's bullshit. Look at what Lloyd George or Clement Attlee's governments did, for starters.

very romantic, Dave, but utterly deluded...corporations run Govts, voters are participants in a charade. The party systems for Western democracy are different cheeks of the same arse. Only a halfwit would look at candidates in this day and age and choose one that fits in with their views...its a political version of the XFactor, and like I said, they laugh at those participating.

So, serious question, what do you propose that would be better?

I suggest you spend some time in a country that doesn't have parliamentary democracy and a free press to realise how lucky we are.

He'll be more subtle about it these days.

How's it nonsense? Politicans laugh at your sort, they've laughed at your sort for decades and they'll continue to laugh at you. You're buying into a system that's completely broken and you think you know it all. More power to you but you'll be back here again in a few years with the same arguments. That's what you would call nonsense.

Wrong. The system isn't broken, the problem is one of apathy and lack of engagement.

If you hate the government and the opposition you can stand. Stand and attack their policies. Offer a viable alternative. Get elected. The mechanism is there to do it, and there are plenty of examples of successful independent candidates.
