Guest Post – Poet Parapet
For some time now I have been wondering who I would prefer to see
undo in parliament the existing mess in politics today. The Tories may
carry with them plans for ownership reform, co-ops, the abolition of the
king (well, maybe not that one) but I know deep down this stuff of
Yesteryear was the stomping ground of the Labour party. To become an
option in our hearts and minds, the Tories have had to swing something
unbelievable to the rhetorical left – and that should appease us, but no.
The problem is just that, it’s rhetoric, the old players are still there,
odiously complaining about us commoners, while the new ones smell
retribution – praise for their apparent “nasty-party” disavowal, when
in actual fact what counts as progressive is actually more of the same in
every vain attempt at shedding skin, we see more of the same; same
shit, with a different triple barrelled troglodyte saying it.
