...dominating the news. And as I was thinking about all this while doing the housework, more literature plopped through the door for the Euro-elections. Bright snazzy leaflet from an extreme right-wing group, making popularist noises. But this group actually has sinister and nutty origins with conspiracy theories, racial rubbish, anti-Jewish ranting etc...it is horrible to see this sort of thing being able to gain ground in the present climate.
A lot depends now on the Tory party - as the Opposition, they are the only team that can show that Parliamentary democracy and our conventions and traditions can work...yes, yes, I know their own slate is dirty too, and those involved must go. But there is still scope for the formation of a team that presents a realistic alternative to the present Govt, which according to our traditions and conventions must resign and now.
We need a General Election before extremist groups can get themselves funded. Some wise Parliamentary work needs to happen next, to get the PM in a car to Buckingham Palace to admit to the Queen that his Govt has lost power and authority, and he's resigning.
