Here’s a pretty accurate appraisal of the state of UK politics during the summer recess, from Martin Odoni. You should read the rest of the article, also.
We have a Conservative Party that decries drug-use while protecting a Chancellor who has a probable history of drug-use. We have a Labour Party that protects foxes more firmly than people, and that is more hostile to the first potential leader it has had in over ten years to whom the public are taking well, than it is to oppressive anti-welfare policies, while still claiming to be the party of the working man. And we have a Liberal Democrat leader who is less supportive of gay rights than a right-wing Tory but still claims to be passionately in favour of gay rights?
When I titled this piece Insanity, I was not referring to everything that was going on in Westminster, as such. I simply meant the mental disorder British politicians seem to be collectively suffering from if they think they are fooling anybody.
