actually let's start with this thread, on the fact that powersharing has collapsed in NI

It's important not to let the DUP's general grossness overshadow just what a colossally irresponsible move this is from TM. It's INSANE.

Nick Timothy, the prime minister’s joint chief of staff, used to love reminding people what a hierarchy was and how it worked. If No 10 was run like a business, he would do well to remember that the customer is always right.

And the customer has spoken — a hierarchy bigger than Nick, bigger than the prime minister. At the top of the chain sit the people who put you there in the first place — the electorate. I have written before about a whiff of arrogance emanating from No 10. It turns out the public couldn’t just detect a whiff, the place bloody well stank.

If you run a presidential style campaign with a woman who doesn’t like media interviews, then you have to accept that it’s better to do them and run the risk that they go badly than look like you are running scared.

It's incredible how quickly Prime Ministerial authority seems to evaporate - literally overnight in the case of Thatcher, Major, Brown, Cameron and now May. Cameron at least had the good sense to know when his time was up and shoot himself in the head quickly, but I'm guessing May has taken a long look and decided she'd rather be John Major instead.

Matt DC, Saturday, 10 June 2017 09:44 (one year ago) Permalink

keep thinking back to the interview the second biggest boy gave after the brexit vote where he all but said labour were now on an election footing. you could see it from the easter flurry of policy announcements, which were v well handled. while our credulous media were blindsided by the snap election call, team jez seemed very well prepared and up for the fight. striking that the other day when asked about the election, he said we're going to win... now, we can quibble abt the meaning of win all you like but when he said it I believed he believed it.

Yeah, NFU was pro-remain, but most farmers for leave. Read that Meek piece at the time- this exchange sticks in the mind:

As I was leaving he told me I’d forgotten to ask a question.

‘What?’

‘Which way I’m going to vote in the referendum.’

‘Which way are you going to vote?’ He’d already told me that post-Brexit the fight to control the countryside would intensify.

‘Out.’

‘Why?’

‘It’d be bad for farming, but there are some things more important than farming.’

‘What things?’ He wouldn’t say.

not to get too mark fisher abt this (since apparently actual real ilxors readily confuse me with him as it is) but modern capitalism has been tremendously effective at persuading people to internalise the blame for the bad life situations they find themselves in (which emerges ether as depression or or other mental health issues, or else as barely controllable displaced rage)

yes that's a colossal hill for people to climb -- our individual responsibility for health and for success in life is the lesson we've had hammered home all our lives

i mean, any systemic explanation is a colossal hill: i've been thinking all morning how a wide programme of education could -- over many years -- have given people a better sense of the interconnectedness of the global economy, and how small britain is and how dependent on the good will of others, its neighbours especially… and that if this had been attempted, then the often understandable impulse behind "we voted for brexit and brexit means brexit" would (could) have been channeled elsewhere

but imagine the political will and focus required to establish such a programme, and all the things working against it (including rival and well funded economic worldviews that would also demand equal time in the class room)

my dad grew up in the era of pink maps and whatever socialist impulses he had where always at odds with his sense of the English as a chosen people. the educational system worked in the exact opposite direction to what you're describing for a lot of the twentieth century and any hope of a realignment got squished by Gove when he was trolling the NUT for fun

someone -- i think one actually of the novara mob -- said that if the #resistance #remainers actually want to win the second referendum they are so busily calling for, they very much need to get boots on the ground the way momentum has, except many of them despise momentum and want to win the argument by media shortcuts (bcz they are media ppl) or just a kind of trust in the vagaries of polls ("50.001% are now anti-brexit! hold the second referendum right now and all will be normal again!")

(reversion-to-the-mean yes, things do tend to swing back from extreme -- except but are you sure you know where the mean actually is now? it may actually be somewhere really dislikeable, in which case we have a LOT of political work on our hands and our models shd be those who undertook such kong-haul work in very dismal circs)

This shit drives me mad, also the Clegg interview in the Guardian last weekened where he was calling for Tory rebels to rise up. There's a real sense of 'stop Brexit, job done' about it all that is completely at odds with reality. I'd guess that actual Momentum is Remain by a comfortable majority in any case.

This is true, although I suspect the main point of difference the second time would be a higher turnout among the young, which could make a non-negligible difference. But nothing lasting can be done without an intensive and co-ordinated attempt to change public opinion at ground level. The last election showed that can be done, and that it's dangerous to rely on what you *think* people thought last time round.

It certainly won't be done by waving a copy of the New European and banging on about how stupid people are on Twitter.

it does seem like electoral reform could go a long way to provoking some meaningful change - the two parties contain multitudes of views that go too far along the political spectrum - a system which reduced their power and increased the chances of coalition, and led to more parties cropping up, would probably be good. but we've prob seen in recent years the strange suspicion of coalitions that exists in the uk and the perception that they are weak or a sign of a decadent state or whatever.
