Did Blair Win, or Did an Entire Country Lose?
An early, dyspeptic reaction to the British elections was posted Friday by
Mick Hume, the editor of the conservative Web site, Spiked-online
The results reveal a political system in stasis ... less like a vibrant
contest than the night of the living dead. This is not, as many claim, all
about Blair or Iraq. It is about the crisis of authority and legitimacy
that now afflicts the entire political class. The electoral disappointments
of all the parties provide a snapshot of a moribund British and wider
European political culture. ... This is the electoral side effect of the
demise of any sense of humanity's history-making potential in our society.
