The difference between the British left and right

I’ve just realised that whether we’re on the left or the right of the political spectrum, as Brits we all share one political belief: that the country’s going to the dogs, whoever’s in charge.

The difference between the left and right is just that the British right believes it goes to the dogs slightly less rapidly under a Conservative government, and vice versa.

No-one actually believes any party, even the one they support, can or will do anything to make things better. At best we hope that our chosen party, when it screws everything up, won’t be quite as catastrophic as the other lot would have been.

    • It’s a bit of a dilemma. I had no idea what a huge problem comment spamming was until I upgraded tombell.net to a WP blog a couple of months ago. The amount of spam I get on here is orders of magnitude greater than what I get at my personal email address, even though I’ve used that for over a decade.

      I use the akismet filter, but it still requires scanning through the dozens of comments in the spam folder every couple of days before emptying it. I’ve added the captcha thing as well to try to stop them at source. I’m still getting a few come through though so robots obviously are able to do it. Captcha just upgraded to a new version – how is it now?
