People ask me the same questions again and again.
- Why go out of your way to spoil the ballot—why not stay home/go to the beach?
- What is spoiling the ballot going to achieve?
- Why aren’t you looking at the candidates on offer and considering voting for a person rather than a party?
- If you’re so dissatisfied, why don’t you run/find an independent to run in your constituency?
These are not questions that are easy to answer. I’ve been thinking about this election for a loooonnnng time and have a whole lot to say.
Several times I’ve started to explain them on camera. Here’s one, recorded back in November 2016, right after President Trump’s election. Perhaps it’ll begin to give an answer.
