in Podcasts, Politics

Where have all the grown-ups gone?

Started the day listening to Michael Heseltine being interviewed on The Political Party podcast in 2017. I’ve never voted Conservative, but I would have someone like him in power versus the current crop of politicians — on both sides of the house — in a heartbeat.

David Allen Green’s blog post today seems to agree.

Perhaps – like a policy equivalent to a market adjustment – a new group of politicians will now emerge to supply the policy seriousness that is now demanded.

This would be like how in many wars, new worldly commanders come to the fore to replace the clumsy peacetime generals who make the initial mistakes.


But unless we soon have a generation of politicians that have the measure of the practical problems facing the United Kingdom then there can only be more chaos and crisis-management, instead of planning, thought and policy.

Brace brace.
