In this most amusing op-ed from Murdoch’s Times of London (a new addition to our sidebar, btw), we get this lament about the big problem with Britain’s Tories: the Conservative Party wants to be just like the New Labour Party!.
The context of the piece is a critique of a BBC documentary on the opposition party in Britain, noting its tepidness, and jealousy of the means and methods of the party in power. (Key line: “No man is a hero to his valet.”)
The author’s suggested course for the Tories is that they be an actual opposition party: fire in the belly attacks on the excesses of the governing party are the way to go. Instead, we see a tepid jealousy of “traingulation” and even adopting the language and restaurant choices of the hated majority.
Remind anyone of something happening somewhere else, maybe?
