yea, Billy Connolly gave him a bloody good telling off on a film set for haranguing a wardrobe assistant into showing him her boobs.
When he talks about drug addiction, he's got valid first hand knowledge and was impressive in front of the House Select Comittee. Even a stuffed clock an be right twice a day.
there's an issue with young people not voting. The reason the UK govt has slashed everything but pensions is that old people vote, and young people don't, as a demographic tend to vote. Using your right to vote and spoiling the ballot is still engaging with democracy.
Still youngin's are being sold down the river, because the main political parties are not courting the youth vote.
I am not ashamed to say that when i vote, I tend to vote Green, even though as a party they only have one MP, because they have policies I broadly agree with. I've been told that voting for the little parties is a wasted vote, but that's how we end up with the same old same old two man con.
The main issue for me is first past the post creates a system wherein you get a safe sea or your constituency is going to swing one of 2 ways.
