Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
We have one of the worst political cultures in the Western world, and a wretchedly ignorant and incompetent civil service.

I don't think it's deliberate distraction so much as bumbling from one crisis to the next, repeating free market ideology robotically, and - in some of the more extreme cases - secretly believing the Empire never really died.

I too have the impression that such strategic oversight of the long-term situation isd beyond that of the current British political elite, especially Brown. Who, again, strikes me as just dumb, a surprise after years of having been told how the wily Bliar fears him.
