it's been a while....

I haven't written anything for a while, don't think it matters too much though because as far as I know, only two people have ever read this. Perhaps if I changed the name to 'Hot, SEXXXY girl on girl action' things would change...............just a thought.
Loads of stuff has been pissing me off recently though, so it's not like I'm out of material, just a bit short on time.
Student politics.....ah, my bete noir.
We had an open forum last week with the parliamentary candidates for Brighton Pavillion, who I won't get started on here, but the meeting was highjacked by some, ummm, well, I think THEY, thought they were anarchists, but I'm not sure if anyone else was convinced, who were not so much shocking in their politics but in their lack of knowledge about their professed politics. So just on the off chance that these people ever read this, here is what I would like to say to you:
I could say that it must be incredibly hard for you, coming from a white, middle class background and having your parents pay your way through university so that you can afford to opt out of capitalism, but I won't because I don't know you, and it's just a hunch of mine that could be completely wrong.However, what I will say is that if you're going to talk politics (which you did, and very loudly too) is to know what you're talking about and avoid hypocrisy at all costs, because otherwise what you've got to say isn't worth listening to.You were preaching at length about non-participation as a form of protest in the upcoming election, which is a totally valid and really interesting perspective, but if those are your politics then live them, don't fucking preach them. But here's my real problem with little twats like you, so read carefully and concentrate, because this might be a difficult concept for your narrow mind. An election is an elevated level of of national debate, right? And if you believe that that kind of debate is an exercise in futility then why the fuck did you turn up to a debate at this level? Surely by coming along you were just engaging with the system and the parliamentary process that you hate soooooo much? I think that everyone is entitled to their opinion, but you had nothing worthwhile to contribute, and if you really are the anarchists that you make out you were betraying your principle by engaging in the way you did. As one of you commented on the last election - 'the non voters won', (which is a dubious concept, the non-voters didn't win, they were labelled apathetic not politically radical, and how the fuck can you try and speak for every other non-voter in the country? I bet that they didn't voye beacuse they didn't care or couldn't be bothered, rather than because they had anarchist sympathies) why not stick to your principles by making your voice heard by not raising it, by making your presence felt by an absence? Basically what I want to say is that you whiney, pretentious, hypocritical, sanctimonious little gobshites need either start practicing what you preach or get over your crushingly tragic North London, private school middle class guilt and stop trying to make your opinions heard by shouting. I can see straight through you, all the way down to the M&S underpants that your mother bought you, and I;m not interested and I'm not impressed.
