Politics is big right now in the UK. We have a General Election being served up soon, with something called Brexit as a dessert course later on. So it may be perspicacious to re-read my thoughts from 2005.
Though not on Brexit as I didn’t foresee this in 2005. Sorry.

The UK Elections are in full swing. Swinging from right towards left and back again dependant on the strategies playing out by the main party forces. And very interesting it is proving to be.
If you follow the machinations you would often have heard of a possibly shadowy Australian figure called Lynton Crosby. A beknighted man, his is a name associated with the Conservative Party and I refer to him as shadowy purely because he is a behind the scenes political adviser and strategist and not an electable representative. If the Conservative Party wins well he will be quietly congratulated by many in the party.
But at the time of writing the Conservatives and their leader Theresa May have not been conducting a powerful and effective campaign.
Conversely the Labour Party appears to be doing the opposite.
Despite many early criticisms, an earlier perceived unelectable shambles has matured into an apparently viable and challenging force, much due to the improving presentation of the Labour Leader.
Has Jeremy Corbyn planned and strategised all this himself or in conjunction with his team or does he have a back-room Lynton Crosby. If so, who is this genuinely shadowy Red Crosby? And why is he/she/them never mentioned.
Silence is said to be golden.
But it doesn’t help move things on much so I’m busting the guilt and will be shortly issuing a few key posts.
But you will have to read them aloud, as they will be delivered by page not noise. And if you don’t add the sound they will remain silent. And this cannot be so as they are key matters.
But not as in door latches.
