Our essential work is denunciation 

Young Hegelian has a good post over at the Weblog, which is worth a read. I don't agree with everything in it, but that's just the way of things. For every slightly dull stab at the government's corruption and lapdogism there are good points knocking its record on its new home turf of the economy and health, as well as on 'lesser' issues like legal aid and asylum. It's also very well written, the 'pathos of indignation' emerging in every phrase. As for an electoral response to this kind of thinking, I'm not sure that even with all this in mind - and it's food for thought even for those in favour of the Iraq War - I'd vote for anyone other than Labour. I hate all the others more. But ballot scrapping is always an option, registering a more general anti-system protest than one which is simply concerned with the politics of a personality, as if Tony Blair was all that was wrong with this world.
