Reader’s Comment of the Day: Cameron enlists the State, Corbyn the mob


In response to, Kathy Gyngell: Cameron’s Big Brother speech is the most PC I have heard, 

It rather brings to the fore the question of what it means to be “Tory” – since the fundamental identity seems to be very similar to what it means to be (certainly New) Labour: well-to-do, interventionist, paternalistic and centralising in one’s instinct.

The only consistent fault line between the two seems to be that the Tory wants to be a progressive British Neo (Wo)man whilst Labour wants to be a progressive World Citizen. In most other areas the similarities outweigh the differences, so that the boundary between red and blue is more the narcissism of small differences than it is a serious political divide.

Corbyn throws something of a spanner into this configuration, but more by methodology than chosen madness. Cameron will enforce with the powers of the State, to which Corbyn merely adds the fury of the mob.
