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

Prepare to be mended.

It can only be a matter of time now. Once the The Cleggeroons have got their feet firmly under the table at Number 10, and once they come to the realization that talking about getting out of the economic mire and actually wading onto firmer ground are not quite the same thing. Once the reality of it all sinks in we can expect the first of what will probably be a series of diversions; something to take out minds off the state of the economy. I refer of course to the master plan to mend "Broken Britain". Expect lots of stomach churning clap trap about the wonders of the nuclear family. Expect lots of half mad god botherers being called in to set up think tanks and for sure you can expect the further vilification of that most vulnerable section of society, young mums. Don't the oiks understand? If our broken country is to be made whole again all mothers will have to be middle class and preferably, having consolidated their career in creative directing or whatever, approaching middle age as well. Yes, If you thought that the creeping Jesus Blairs were bad just see what's in store for us now.

"...a series of diversions..." yeah, that will be the interesting decider of how much imagination they have, how much media co-operation they can rustle up, and how much leeway they've got from the USofA (maybe for something biggish - not another Falklands, the world's probably too small for that).
I think the country's had enough of creeping Jesus Blair lookalikes and all their works, so it will have to be something exceptionally original -that excludes a lot of military stuff, Olympics is fraught with difficulty, another wave of Royalism maybe - Liz dying, coronation, Camilla getting some egg-magic pregnancy....
So it's open bets on the shape of the next spectacular creation. What shape will the red herring take?
