“The society which has abolished every kind of adventure makes its own abolition the only possible adventure.” Paris, May 1968

Looks like we're in for stormy weather.

If we don't end up with a hung parliament after the election it wont be for the want of trying. The three main party leaders and the media seem unable to talk about anything else. A crushing defeat for New Labour would mean some very serious heart searching not only in Victoria Street but in Labour Party branches throughout the country. All kinds of unreconstructed old Stalinists, closet Trots and the like will emerge from the woodwork and all in the context of a tough on public spending Con-Lib alliance in Westminster. It don't need a weatherman .....

Factor in tumbling eurozone double-dip magic and add some weirdness from the authoritarian right (with or without uniforms & regalia) and it conjures up an almost perfect storm.
