I've seen this.
And as for the swearing, grow up! This is the English language, you choose to be offended by certain words because you have been conditioned to. It's fine for a child to be educated against swearing and to find it uncomfortable when they hear it, because they don't know what it means, but it's not fine for adults to think that way. There is something wrong with people who are offended by the language someone else uses.
And he is expressing the rage the British public feels about this. There are a lot of people in the UK who feel exactly as he does, and the government doesn't realize it.
That's why I think that when the austerity hits or the € crisis truly kicks off with fireworks, they're all going to be in for a shock.
The funniest thing I've seen lately was Theresa May announcing cuts to Policing, and she was verbally assaulted by thousands at the Police conference. My main question is who the government now thinks is going to protect them from the mob? The Police are likely to join in with any demands for an election. And if it does come down to a revolution, I don't think the majority of Police will be on their side.

He's right for the most part but he is dead wrong on nationalizing the banks. They already are for all practical purposes and that is the problem. Government bail outs prop them up. if you nationalize them then they will continue to prop them up and say they can't let them fail. THEY NEED TO LET THEM FAIL and quit letting government bail them out with tax money! But yeah get rid of these governments I am all for that!

The Greek government borrowed from the Greek banks, the Greek banks ran out of money, so borrowed from the IMF at !%, and bought Greek government bonds which paid 3.5% making a profit of 2.5.% for doing nothing, the government then paid back some of what it owed to the Greek banks, Mean while the government was paying the wages and pensions with the money left over, untill they had to go to the Greek banks once more...............
