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

It could have been worse.

Over the next forty eight hours it should be revealed to us poor mugs exactly what kind of hang hung lib lab con we are about to have to deal with for who knows how long. I for one am just relieved that the election is over and that at least we have not ended up with a huge Tory landslide. Looking on the bright side, and that is not something that I have been doing a lot of recently, the results in London could have been a lot worse. The much feared BNP big push in Barking came to nothing, it appears that across the capital people voted more or less on class lines and despite the worst efforts of New Labour I feel reassured by that.
The next couple of years could very well determine what kind of country we have for a generation. It will be critical that class comes back on the political agenda. The wheel is still in spin and we have everything to play for.
