Not a political blog – but tomorrow we vote

06May10

This isn’t a political blog but the following two articles are well-written and worth reading.

Johann Hari (an award-winning journalist who writes twice-weekly for the Independent, one of Britain’s leading newspapers, and the Huffington Post): Welcome to Cameron-Land – a dispatch from David Cameron’s Britain

I can see the Conservatism. Where’s the compassion?”

and Remember 1983? … a Cameron victory will be just as bad, by Jonathan Freedland. Jonathan writes a weekly column for The Guardian and is a regular contributor to The New York Times and The New York Review of Books. In his Guardian article he quotes Neil Kinnock’s 1983 speech:

I warn you,” he began, addressing a nation about to descend into the bitterest stretch of the Thatcher era. “I warn you not to be ordinary. I warn you not to be young. I warn you not to fall ill. I warn you not to get old.”

Both articles make interesting reading.
