Well, it appears that I'm 14th overall in my postcode, eighth man (which means, I guess, that there are five women better than me here, which is interesting) and second in my age group! Who is that man!!! Considering I live in the running hotbed of SW London, I'm quite encouraged.
As someone who works tangentially to the charity sector, I'd always take with a pinch of salt the claim that '100 per cent' goes to the cause. It doesn't do the sector any good when people say this: every charity has some overheads somewhere - phones and postage are not free, as just one example.
The problem is that career politicians are no so well media trained that they come up with platitudes, which is why QT has gone down the maverick outsiders route. I never watch it any more and didn't see it last night: I can't bear to see people with horrendous views such as Farage get applause and airtime. It's a bit depressing that the best they can do for a left of centre opinion is Russell Brand; there are anti-capitalists out there who could give a much more coherent and better account of themselves. What I will say for him is that he puts his head above the parapet and says the things Labour should be saying (more coherently) about the state of the nation, knowing he'll get called a hypocrite (99 per cent of the attacks on him are ad hominem, rather than about the substance of what he says). I'm not bothered about his views on voting: it's a legitimate position to have. If people died for the right to vote, they surely also died for the right not to vote if you can't stomach any of the candidates.
