Perhaps after the election results were in and the polls were so far off the mark I guess Russ was right all along. There really is no point in voting.

Surely the actual message is that there's no point in polling. Voting is *definitely* how governments get in, not voting is *definitely* not.

By the way, good name!

Did anyone ever watch his show on one of the early obscure digital channels, uk play our something where he would bath with a tramp or suduce an old woman? It's hard to believe this man was on drugs!

Oh yeah, I wrote about that on my blog recently:

He was so amazing on that. I watched that and not Big Brother.

I used to write down stuff he said on that and try and use it at work the next day.

Yes, good point. I suppose I mean that if you are Welsh or Scottish, then there is no point in voting.

The username is the work of Mark Edward Smith and stolen by me. Thanks anyway.

He is a hypocritical wanker. Such a narcissist I do wonder if he ever listens to anyone except himself.

Now I'm confused are you talking Russle Brand or personifying the SNP ?
Cameron, Salmond, Brand have all been accused of Narcissum. But not Charles Kennedy - he's the man Nicola Sturgeon could have been, had she not wanted power. Scotland

I went to see Russell Brand do a charity gig in his hometown - Grays, Essex - in February and it was a lot of fun.

Only a couple of bits of new material, mostly a greatest hits set and lots of audience interaction. He stuck around for ages afterwards, so I got to meet him very briefly. Just gutted I didn't have a pen to get an autograph.

And I even saw his Mum and Dad who were there. And Mr Gee!
