Dark cloud of obscurity……

volcanocloudToday in the UK all flights are grounded as a dark cloud spreads across the evening sky blotting out the light. We’re not talking about the Ash cloud eminating from an Icelandic volcanoe but the dark cloud of our first Television debate involving the Prime Minister Gordon Brown, Leader of the opposition David Cameron and another Public schoolboy representing the Lib Dems.

Of course Democratic debate in a “free” society is a wondeful thing but this stage managed farce with its pre-selected questions, chosen and pre-vetted audience and spin doctored performances will do nothing to enlighten andtv+debate inform debate. In fact it will further stifle true discussion and replace it with endless microscopic analysis of our leaders “performance”, mannerisms and ticks.

Once upon a time in the U.K we thought we were above all this U.S inspired nonsense but now it can be truly said that Style has triumphed over substance.

  1. Fascinating piece. I came across your site a while back when searching for articles dealing with American Politics and Democrats. I’ve become a returning visitor to your blog. I know I’m a little late in posting my comments but this particular post made a lot of sense and I enjoyed it. I can’t say that I agree with all the points you made but it was definitely enlightening! I run a small US company that manufactures a line of collectible political gifts that commemorate the great leaders, speeches and events of American politics. I’m trying to create American jobs so I hope you don’t mind me including my link in this post. I’m always looking to promote our American made products and I still believe America just keeps getting better and better in spite of our current difficulties. I’m not sure if my earlier post was received so I’m trying again. Thanks again for an intriguing blog post and your thoughts about our current political climate. I will return again soon.
