What capitalist propaganda? You think BBC and CNN are libertarian? Don't be an idiot.
Bitch, moan and whine until you get what you want. You might as well live in a tent outside Westminster.
I feel sorry for you. With that attitude you'll be miserable for the rest of your life.
capitalist propaganda is all around us simply because capitalism is all around us. i didn't say that the bbc and cnn are libertarian, but all for-profit media is by definition, capitalist. when such a huge amount of the media is pro-capitalist, then it stands to reason that what we read, what we watch, what we hear, is all pro-capitalist. i never said it is all pro-purest form, laissez-faire capitalism, but it is pro-capitalism nevertheless.
i don't think i displayed a negative attitude. or a miserable one. all i said is that it is a democratic right to attempt to influence the government by voicing one's views about a number of topics. if a certain matter isn't included in a manifesto, but the government of the day still tries to address that matter, then where the public dislike it, and did not give a full mandate for the government to act in that way, they should protest. apart from anything else, if nobody protests, then the government may not even realise that a substantial number of people are opposed to their actions.
There's more to the electoral system than 5 year general elections.
erm, that was what i said when you said you feel sorry for me. it is you who seems to think that you vote and then the government can do whatever it wnats.
