On identifying a fundamental problem

OK, this is a little more explicitly political than my usual posts, but --allowing no doubt for the cherry-picked anecdotal "evidence" verging probably on urban myths, which I have to see behind every tree in the media nowadays*-- Jenni Russell's diagnosis of what has become of Labour's naive interventionism does seem spot on.But even she does not see Cameronism as a panacea...

* Do read Davies N (2009) Flat Earth News London: Vintage which is an enormously eye-opening expose of the present state of journalism (or "churnalism" as he calls it, and I suspect he's a bit naive about drugs policy, but even so...)

Comments welcome, but I am afraid I have had to turn moderation back on, because of inappropriate use. Even so, I shall process them as soon as I can.
