As do populists. See 'Brexit is Trump is Le Pen'.

For people so concerned about national particularities, they don't half merge their message into a pan-national melange of general bitterness and confusion.

I find it difficult to disagree with anything he's saying in that piece. Come back Tony, all is forgiven.


I find that quite cheering, and exciting. Thank Dawkins somebody is doing something to try to arrest the dread slide into a world of shite.


Me too. I'd have him back in a heartbeat. Don't fancy his chances of influencing Brexit in any way though. Still, you never know.

Yowsers, Blair has told Sky May will be PM IF polls are right - that will endear him even more to Team Corbyn

Hang on...isn't that just a statement of fact?

Wowsers... I haven't got anything to say so I'll say this and pass it off as news, I know the Corbynistas are quite nasty to Laura K but she does come out with horseshit.

She's overtly right-wing in what she does, she breaks any attempt at journalistic neutrality in a way that makes Nick Robinson look like a paragon of even-handedness. She's a hack and if the BBC had a spine she'd be out on her arse.
