"Throw the Bromley down the well
Then out country will be free"
as Borat would no doubt sing.
It was Bromley, and the proud tradition that judges are allowed to make the law by thinking up bizarre interpretations of words like 'economic' that scuppered 'Fares Fair'. Not that is is fair for me to complain since I got 10p returns from the distant Tory suburbs by pretending to be 16.
All of which is a bizarre incoherent ramble leading towards the fact that I liked the comment here http://leninology.blogspot.com/2008/05/contours-of-new-labour-descent.html
"If the turnout was higher in London, it was higher mainly in the dead zones of the Tory suburbs, which will spend the rest of the summer smelling of bigotry and barbecues until some kind of divine Ballardian punishment crashes the party"
For this sentence, I salute him.
Onwards to the glorious future.
Or bed, anyway.
