• WHAT dismays me more than anything about out current consensus-ridden politics is its staleness and lack of incentive.
I had hoped that a combination of New Labour and Lib Dem centrist political philosophy would outgrow bigotry and doctrinaire ideology, developing into a combination forging a genuine, radical force.
However, the shallow consensus of New Labour, under the chameleon Tony Blair, proved a Trojan horse for economic servitude and the class system, harbinger of privilege.
Now the Stone Age economies of classical monetarism are blunting the national incentive.
Where is the visionary leader to reclaim our industrial heritage and the institutions of commerce as vehicles for growth?
What little there is to choose between the meretricious compromise of Ed Miliband and the insouciance of David Cameron.
