Vanity Fair

Gets quite personal this one and we have the very vain Neil Kinnock accusing the very vain Arthur Scargill of “suicidal vanity”(1) and the very vain Arthur saying that the very vain Neil betrayed the miners strike twenty five years ago. Yes, here we have Lord Kinnock still smarting from the fact that the Stalinist Scargill buggered up his chances of talking his place in the ranks of those mediocrities who have “led” “Blighty”, while the banal bolshevik builds his castles in the sky and thinks of what might have been had he been allowed to take his place in history as the dictator of the proletariat. Christ, if it weren’t for the mediocre Major and the sting of the spinner Blair that she ushered in, we might be tempted to be grateful for Maggie. Whatever, the real losers back in 1984 were always going to be the British great gullible British public. Nevertheless, was it ever any different. Ah, “1984”, well, we should have known!

There are a lot of poor bastards out there being used and abused; it is just not cricket "old bean". Something tells me that ignorance is not bliss, but is, in fact, simply ignorance and in the global village we cannot look the other way.
