It might just be me, but politics at the moment seems so chroncially boring I just want to switch off completely. Whether it’s the self-feeding, media-induced sense that there is crisis in the heart of government or the constant predictions of how big the Tories’ majority will be, I’ve lost interest in the next general election two years before its probable date. So, OK, things have gone wrong in the last six months but mistakes get made by governments of all colours- it just happens that we’ve had a particularly concentrated period of them that’s not been helped by the media acting as a feral pack and deliberately trying to destabilise things further. Looking abroad as well, there’s nothing to get cheered about: the European project still seems to have stalled and needs to get a new sense of momentum, the centre-left is in retreat across the EU, and McCain is going to win in November regardless of who gets the Democrat nomination (besides, both Democrat candidates are so lousy I’m not sure that’d be such a bad thing). Anyway, I hope to rejoin the fight soon but quite frankly, at the moment, I just don’t care…
