VIDEO: CHARLIE BROOKER'S ELECTION WIPE


Here at Alternative Right we don't normally post videos from the BBC, a notoriously left-wing organization, but "Charlie Brooker's Election Wipe," a satirical look at the UK election (the vote is today), deserves to be an exception. For those not familiar with British politics, the program can serve as a quick primer on the subject. Brooker draws attention to the phoniness of mainstream British politicians (except Nigel Farage, interestingly) as well as the stupidity of many of the voters. In general the program serves as an indictment of democracy. Whatever Brooker's actual political opinions may be – presumably cynical liberal – this is well worth a watch.
