Why do we bother having Elections in this country any more?
Consider the following:
Matthew Taylor, Head of the Number 10 Policy Unit under Blair, mate of Ed Vaizey’s, on for a job under Cameron;
Julian Le Grand, former Blair adviser on health policy, on for a job under Cameron;
Ken Anderson, another old Blair adviser on health, now based at UBS, on for a job under Cameron;
Geoff Mulgan, old Trotskyist ex-Director of Demos, Blair’s favourite think tank and itself a literal continuation of the dissolved Communist Party of Great Britain (even if it is now hosting Phillip Blond), on for a peerage and Ministerial office under Cameron;
And who knows how many more.
Welcome to the One-Party State of Britain.
As Peter Hitchens said a few months ago, if a major horserace or football match were fixed in the way that the political process now is, there would be riots in the streets.
