There is a wider point. Barack Obama will this week visit a Europe where the Left is on the run. Its leading figures have sleepwalked to obliteration – or perp-walked, in the case of Dominique Strauss-Kahn – and their resurrection will be made harder by today’s magpie politics, in which the Right steals the traditional causes of the Left.
If your causes are being advanced who in hell cares who they are being advanced by? Isn\’t that what you atually went into politics to do, advance your causes?
Heck, I\’d vote for George Galloway if I thought it would mean the UK leaving the EU.
Or perhaps it\’s not actually the advancement of the cause but the advancement of the tribe that you think politics is about? What is done is less important than who is the Big Lasagne doing the doing?
In which case I spit upon you.
