"He must be up there workin`, 4 million a year he`s probly graftin`..!" :lol::lol:

Yeah he graftin` mate, but not the way you think.

Seriously, RB has just gone way up in my estimation, saw him on the JR show, great stuff, I take back all the nasty comments I have made about him.....sorry MATE.

The more voices like this the better as far as I'm concerned. You don't have to like him or agree with everything he says but, in the long run, it's good to see people like him actually speaking out.

Hopefully a percentage of the people who do 'follow' Brand will wake up and do a bit more research into how the financial system works.

On the JR show (where I spotted this) Olly Murs looked a bit confused when RB was laying out the heist that the bankers pulled on society, I`d guess most people on the High St. wouldn`t get it either?

I've huge respect for RB, watch a lot of his 'trews' stuff - certainly expresses the bank/business/politics/media circle-f**k well.

Yes he does, and the crazy thing is that I was intending only to watch KR on the show and delete it, because Brand, JR and usual guests make my skin crawl usually, and I just about deleted it when Brand walked on, then a few minutes later he is jumping a bank counter demanding to speak to Mister Goodwin! F*ucking classic, he is acting out the HPC group mind fantasy!

Two sides to every coin......very many have a vested interest to maintain the status quo......can't see things changing any time soon, far too many powerful people will see that it stays the same, just as they like it. ;)

Things are already changing IMO, next election is going to prove that I think. You have to ask though why this is getting aired on the JR show, banks ready for the next leg down maybe?

Yeah I like him too. He can be a bit of a knob, of course, but hat's off to him - he is actually out there, saying these things and making plenty of noise, whilst we are all sat behind our keyboards. The really alarming thing is that I cannot think of a single other well known UK personality, politician or journalist that is out there raising the same issues. Although my gut reaction is to disagree with his advice not to vote, the fact is that there isn't a party to vote for that would make any difference to the status quo so he's probably right. With the lib-dems gone, and labour now tory-lite maybe its time for a radical new party of the left. Something that could get gen Y out to the polls could really shake things up.. maybe Brand is the man to lead it.

This it`s the message not the town cryer that matters good to see him in the schools ,thought it would have been better to preach to an older audience though

Pretty sure he posts, or at least lurks on here though? Lets face it, this is where he got his ideas!

I know you said 'well known' but to some extent he's picking up where Mark Thomas left off in the late 90's

With the scale of fraud and deception that's unraveled since Mark Thomas was doing the rounds, as you say, it's hard to understand why there aren't more subversives spreading the word.

Hillwalking might have something to do with subversives missing, its a dangerous hobby.

What happened to him used to love the show (Mark Thomas comedy product) the National treasures episode was just pure class

Still does the rounds on the comedy circuit, see him now and again at festivals. I think he pissed off one to many people in the meeja over the course of the comedy product for him to have any further mainstream exposure (I can imagine he's quite difficult to work with), and I suppose RB appeals to a similar crowd so his appeal started to decrease at the same time?
