Your fundamental suggestion -that we separate the economic and the political -is a sound one. As far as I can tell, the working classes in the UK are economically of the left, but socially of the right.

That’s where the problem lies, in the entanglement of a set of social and political ideas with a set of economic ideas which, at base, have nothing to do with each other.

Snapper-up of unconsidered trifles, walker of paths less travelled by. Advocate-in-Ordinary to His Satanic Majesty.
