The extremes our political culture will go to, to avoid addressing the death of the centre position have been entertaining. Labour has been coloured every hue and fuck knows where they pulled Maurice Glasman from, I’d never heard of him pre-Blue Labour and I shouldn’t think I will again… We have pasties, and Englishness, and shared blue sky box bottoms being scraped. A trend towards political theology swirling around in focus group adjusted and deeply offensive inoffensive messages… while open warfare is occurring within parties. Their denial has provided some well needed comic relief.
