Laurence Fox and I would have been in the same school year, but he is not merely having a midlife crisis. It has long been apparent that he was having a nervous breakdown.
That is not diagnosis far beyond my competence. If someone were coughing up blood, then you would tell them to go to the doctor. The same applies here.
His effusions need to be received in that spirit. A spirit that includes the expectation that he will eventually help himself.
Fox's 1.9 cent in the London Mayoral Election was the best that the heavily publicised "populist" Right managed anywhere this year. It does best in London, and it does very badly even there.
