    How extraordinary. You could almost be fooled, by reading the last line of my little comment above, that I was trying to impersonate you Ian. Because I wrote ‘Love and best wishes, Ian’, as though the love and best wishes were from you. Whereas they were obviously my salutations from me to you. I’m glad that I’ve cleared that awful bit of confusion up. There was a man in my shop today who was the spitting image of Nick Lowe. I told him that a food shop is not the best place to spit. He understood. But he wasn’t Nick Lowe.

    i think that we have to reconcile ourselves to looking forward to the Tories, don’t you? What’s necessary, it seems to me, is that Labour understand what has happened and act on it; that they come up with some real ‘collective’ ideas, as opposed to the individualist ones they nicked off the Tories.
    I hesitate to say that I think there’s a third way between individualism and state collectivism, given the horrible history of ‘The Third Way’; but I do. Green politics are about empowering communities; collectivist if you like, but small enough that individuals have a real say in what happens to those communities. Our system is still adversarial (that’s why the Tories will get in; because no one else can), so it might seem that there is still just this two stark choices between the dear old Tories (who will, at least, abolish the id card scheme) and a bankrupt and exhausted Labour party. But at the next election, The Greens stand a very good chance of having at least one MP elected; Caroline Lucas in Brighton Kemp Town. As an ex-Brighton Green Party member, I for one will be chuffed to bits.
    One last thing; the BNP are nothing if not collectivist… see the woman whose clip I posted on ‘Blood and Soil’.

    Yeah but your tally is abit limited – you can’t just leave it to wars – think of all the deaths that happened under the tory regime through underfunded NHS – winter cold deaths of old people etc – make no mistake the outcome of the next election will make a real difference – and not just to squaddies and people living over seas. The problem is there are only two ways to run society – individualism and collectivism – the only party that can get anywhere near being vaguely collectivist, and vaguley able to actually win an election here and be in power of anything – is Labour – you have to vote for them or look forward to the Tories. It’s a tough choice, but then not such a tough choice….

    And so did the fools who voted (and will vote again) for them. And when they return from the wilderness where they so rightly belong, they’ll fuck the country over yet again and bankrupt us yet again. The endless destructive cycle of socialism.
    And the Americans have now got a sharp and probably very painful learning curve coming too. We’ve just seen the results of the working man’s party’s contempt for the country. BNP? Labour Lite? Emperor’s new clothes? Cynical and pissed off? Me? Any more questions?
    Love and best wishes, Ian.
