Absolutely correct Polly

Politics is being weighed in the balance and found wanting.

There really are problems which politics will not and cannot solve.

It\’s not just this climate change thing either: there\’s a whole raft of things out there which people identify as problems (say, the gender pay gap) and which are simply not solvable by the political process (in the example of the gender pay gap because at least most if not nearly all of it is caused by the different decisions and desires of individual men and women) in anything even faintly resembling a free and liberal society.

Which is why, despite your best attempts, we do not use politics or the political process to decide and manage everything in life.

  1. Tim, you correctly observe,

    “….the gender pay gap….. not solvable by the political process……in anything even faintly resembling a free and liberal society.”

    This is one of the reasons they are doing away with that free and liberal bit.

    Work in progress.

    I think what she means is ‘Politics I don’t approve of has been found wanting’. She doesn’t appear to be suggesting we have less of it.
