Debate Is Dead

You may remember me bemoaning the poor quality of political debate in this country. This is a nice illustration of just how bad it can get:

Maggie Thatcher is Dead!

Sure, the woman made some bad mistakes in her time, and went in some dubious directions, but so have pretty much all Prime Ministers, the current incumbent included. Indeed, I find Blair’s constant shift of Government towards a more authoritarian model far more worrying than any Labour or Tory government of the past century.

This is just puerile faeces-flinging at a time when we badly need a decent level of debate in this country.
