British funnyman RUSSELL BRAND has never voted in a U.K. election, branding politicians "frauds and liars".
The Forgetting Sarah Marshall star has taken the helm of current affairs magazine the New Statesman to guest-edit this week's (begs21Oct13) edition.
Despite penning a 4,500 article on wanting to see his homeland's political system revolutionised, he admits he is yet to vote for a party at the ballot box.
He writes, "When people talk about politics within the existing Westminster framework I feel a dull thud in my stomach and my eyes involuntarily glaze.
"Like when I'm conversing and the subject changes from me and moves on to another topic. I try to remain engaged but behind my eyes I am adrift in immediate nostalgia; 'How happy I was earlier in this chat,' I instantly think.
"I have never voted. Like most people I am utterly disenchanted by politics. Like most people I regard politicians as frauds and liars and the current political system as nothing more than a bureaucratic means for furthering the augmentation and advantages of economic elites."
