Coming of Age

Dear Ivor

Your memory of our youthful antics is somewhat clouded by nostalgia! As no doubt your head is this morning.

You do have to be careful about keeping a lower profile, freedom of speech is not what it used to be, look at what has happened to Damian Green. There were warning signs that a Stalinesque style of government was creeping in. Hazel Blears has been rallying troops against the freedom to blog. Blaming “corrosive cynicism, fuelled by politically nihilistic blogs and a retreat from dispassionate reporting, is endangering British political discourse”. Perhaps the real reason that bloggers are taking to the keyboard in growing numbers is because…

"Sometimes people feel the political world is very far-removed from their everyday existence,", “There's something about the language we use... it's sometimes like a very closed world”. Said Hazel Blears

As a political community we have come of age and now expect our politicians to treat us as responsible adults, its right that they should be concerned for our welfare but actually we can cope with making decisions, hearing the truth and the odd nihilistic blog!
