Whatever you think of the New Labour years, it has been a decade of social liberalism, when racism, homophobia and anti-science voodoo became steadily less respectable.
We have hysteria about GM….anti-science voodoo has become steadily less acceptable? We have alternative medicine on the NHS? Deepak Chopra continues to make millions….children die because the anti-vaccination brigade have the bit between their teeth? Nuclear power is rejected because Greenpeace is opposed to the only thing that can provide low carbon base load? Charities insist that poor countries should keep their tariffs, thus keeping them poor?
We have the organic movement, the food miles one, reiki and crystal practitioners coming out of every orifice and you\’re trying to claim that anti-science voodoo is becoming less respectable?
