Quote of the Day

Chris Deerin goes all Carswellian…

“The political classes display blatant contempt for the intelligence of the electorate. They see themselves as wizards, making us ‘ooh’ and ‘ahh’ with their clever illusions, their levitations and rabbits and hats. They don’t realise the audience can see the colourful handkerchief hanging from their sleeve, the trapdoor in the stage floor, that the lovely assistant’s legs remain attached to the rest of her body. Politics needs to be saved from the politicians. We live in an age of peer-to-peer communication, in which a lie or a bluff can be exposed as such on the internet within minutes. Deference is gone, institutions are tottering, people have choice and empowerment in most areas of their lives. No one believes in magic or magicians any more.”
