Alex Jones strikes again

Alex Jones is largely regarded as being a man that likes to make his point, and doesn't really care how he does it. He shouts as loudly as possible, in as many directions as possible, in order to fit as much of what he believes into every single interview. To some, he is the great shock to the system that the world needs, whereas, to others such as Andrew Neil, presenter of the Sunday Politics show on the BBC, he is simply "the worst person that he had ever interviewed."

There are few people in this world that actually believe that politicians are always working to do their best for what is morally and economically right for a country. In fact, there has very rarely been anyone who thinks that in the past, with even the most diehard fan of a political faction or leader forced to acknowledge that the people they support are not always saints. There are no magical people at the top of human politics, so maybe we need people,like Alex Jones to take a bite out of them every now and again.

Sometimes people need to rock the boat, and Alex Jones like to take a cannon and attempt to make the boat look remarkably like a colander. This makes some people love him, but the vast majority stare on with absolute horror.

Appearing on the BBC, which is not exactly known for its love of lively and disruptive characters making politics shows just that little bit more interesting, Jones seemed like a stick of dynamite that did not know when to stop exploding. He was disruptive, arrogant, incoherent and rude to the other people there, a trait that has made him recognisable on American television, but looked downright absurd this side of the pond.

It looked like he had walked out of a low budget chat show to go to the toilet, and then wandered into the wrong studio before desperately trying to think up an opinion. He certainly liked to replace logic and reasoning with volume.

This is such a shame, because I would really like to know what this man has to say, not just about the Bilderberg Group, which is essentially a bunch of powerful people meeting up to talk about current issues, but also about other ideas that he has. Some of them might make a lot of sense, if they were explained properly, but the way he goes about it makes you think that he is off his nut.

For instance, if the Bilderberg Group is possibly negatively influencing politicians decisions to the degree that it could be called corruption, then I would like him to explain why, rather than simply shouting as many "facts" as possible at a camera as he can. Possibly, he might start to formulate more reasonable views if he started to think and explain things in a more reasonable way.

For now, anyway, this man is certainly not the people's hero fighting to restore justice the highest corridors of power. There wasn't even that much there to start with.
