And no, I did not mean Gordon Brown.
Whether or not Nick Clegg decides to help the Tories remove the Wicked Westmonster from Downing Street, where it malevolently squats, slitty-eyed and lockjawed, at all-comers, one thing became clear today.
The droids that think they own the right to boss, to hector, to threaten, to “choice-edit”, and to kill in the name of “fairness”, just as Pol Pot thought, are now coming for Clegg too. “Liberal Democracy” is not enough for them: only tyranny will do. He’d do well to lock his doors at night from now on.
There might be something to be said for Proportional Representation, as Dr Sean Gabb was discussing with me on the phone a little time ago, this being since FPP has clearly failed to deliver liberty in modern times, even under the more recent less socialist than socialist Tory governments.
But it’s what else the droids will contrive to “demand” that is the real danger.
