I am thoroughly enjoying the run up to the Elections, the myriad of satellite shows on Scope TV, AlRai, Nabeeha Tahaluf and others, the campaign headquarter visits, the newspaper and blog articles fueled by scandals and analysis… The media is indeed helping to shape the results of the next election.

But what is the feeling out there on the streets of Kuwait? Anger, cynicism, disappointment?

The ‘mad prophet of the airwaves’ Howard Beale (Peter Finch) howled in the classic 70s drama NETWORK, “I’m as mad as hell and I’m not going to take it anymore.”

Is the Kuwaiti electorate angry enough to make a real difference on May 17th?
