Can UK Tories Find Their Own Blairism?
Neil O'Brien, New Statesman
Britain’s main political parties are very diverse coalitions, made up of all kinds of different groups. Like some kind of cruel reality TV show, utterly ill-matched people are forced to work together and pretend to like each other. In a particularly disturbing social experiment conducted every autumn, the members of these sprawling ideological tribes are herded into a specially secured zone in some unfortunate city, with only each other for company. With such a combustible mix of personalities, and a shedload of booze poured on top, it’s a wonder more people aren’t injured.
