Tweedledum And Tweedledee

Neither party is going to prevail. One side blusters, the other snipes and that's what life is like in a democracy. The war over Thatcher's legacy is a bit Tweedledum and Tweedledee but if we find it demeaning or annoying or discombobulating we should remember that nothing like it is ever going to happen in North Korea.

Mainly we're enjoying it. In an era when every political leader looks like every other political leader and they all say the same things it's rather good fun to replay the battles of a more characterful era. Biff, bang, bump. I think most of us are hoping (not openly of course; no, perish the thought!) that the Thatcher funeral will turn into a replay of the Battle of Trafalgar Square. Ah, those were the days. Remember when we still had convictions? Hey, let's have an historical re-enactment!
