Entirely so, entirely so

Why the reference to the wings in re the two major political parties? Are we being asked to envision either of our two major political parties as a bird, an aircraft. If so, each would surely have two matching wings, one on either side of the body/fuselage.

  4. Today’s political aircraft has one wing… on the left.

    Which is why we are spiralling to the ground, unnoticed by the passengers distracted by hot towels being handed out and free drinks.
