His claim of ending the era of moderate politics I would say is already over considering the use of fear based campaigning (like Chris Grayling is doing here alanisly) and the vitriol of political debate in this country at the moment.

The right wing is mainly inhabited by people who just focus on their own narrow interest whether financial or cultural, so the "selfish gene" is part of that mix and "being a c**t" is also important.

Are the left in this country lauding the "Gilet Jaunes"? I haven't noticed.

The main agenda of the Gilet Jaunes seems to be opposition to tax on vehicle fuel and an intent to put as many speed cameras out of action as possible. They look like typical 'Gammons' to me.

The first one refers to them as individuals, the second as rather a monolithic block sharing the same views.

In other words I wasn't suggesting the left in general in the UK support the Yellow Vests, merely there are those - mainly those who delight in civil disobedience and destruction - who do.

Never mind that the main call from the Citizens Assemblies set up after the protests was to abolish gay marriage, there's plenty who'll throw gays under the bus if it gives them a chance to take down a centrist.

Yeah, that's the kind of thing that I thought you meant.

I think one of the major problems nowadays is that people who are clearly want chaos are quite 'liberally' thrown in with the rational people. 'The left' are nutters, 'the right' are nutters. Obviously, that's not true. Well, at least most are not any more of a nutcase than you or I.

It's the minority of people. I don't think it's fair to call them 'left' or 'right'. It just agitates. It makes people who are properly 'old school' left or right feel like they're part of the problem. Obviously, they're not. They're just in the centre now, but that's not always at the forefront of a persons mind when they're considering these things. If you slam 'the left' when you actually mean 'the nutters' then the 'old school' left feel like you're having a pop at them. And vice versa for 'the right'.

I think rational people should start considering this problem as we're getting no where at the moment. It's actually just pushing rational people farther to their extreme limits.

I might as well add that labelling people who want chaos as 'anarchists' is nit particularly helpful either. In my opinion, some streams of anarchist thought is the most civilised ever created by mankind. A utopian world would be a world based on anarchism, so to throw mindless destruction, chaos and rigid views under the 'Anarchist' label is either severely misiformed or incredibly lazy.

I've always been a floating voter. I'm no great fan of Corbyn but my vote has gone to Labour recently due to the sheer inhumanity of the current ruling party. I remember how ineffectual Labour were back in the mid to late seventies and I swore that I'd never vote for them. During the Blair period I voted LibDem. In recent years, I just want the tories out and that means labour despite my misgivings about the leader.

Your regular use of the terms 'spudmunchers', 'Frogs', 'Krauts' etc. points to one of two possibilities:
