The Melancholy of Non-Resistance

Filed under: Politics — duncan @ 2:32 pm

Owen Hatherley has it right:

“There’s something either terribly exciting or terribly melancholy about this. New Labour achieves what the extreme left of Old Labour always dreamt of – nationalising the fucking banks – but they won’t have a vote in what to actually do with the banks they partly own (like the huge public works that are needed, for starters), or even cap executive pay while doing it.”

Goddamn fuckit, etc.
