lesser of two evils

Been keeping an eye on the UK elections out of morbid fascination - no surprise that the same thing happened there as in Australia and the States - the incumbents won because they had no opposition

Must quote two things from Samizdata, because they can so easily be applied to their parallels in Aus and the States:

“Do not hold your nose and vote for Michael Howard’s carnival of clowns because they are the less evil because they are nothing of the sort: they are the same evil with the added toxic characteristic of providing an illusion of choice”

“This was not a ‘vindication’ of the Tories…, it was just another confirmation that they have become utterly irrelevant”

Linkies:
Samizdata before
