IN CASE you missed any of our ten most-read blogs of last week, here they are for you again – and well worth the read.

Laura Perrins: Say No to state-sponsored child abuse

Party tribalism is said to be so strong in Britain that Labour loyalists would vote for a donkey if it wore a red rosette (and the same goes for a Tory, if the donkey were in blue). Yet, as Alexander McKibbin rightly pointed out this week, ‘there seems nothing thicker than a cigarette paper dividing the two main political parties’.

In his article, ‘Mediocrity and consensus: the enemies of democracy’, McKibbin draws attention not only to the lack of meaningful differences between the two parties, but also the widespread lack of experience among their parliamentary representatives. These bland, cut-out figures will be chosen again and again in a continuous cycle (though with different faces) because, as McKibbin writes, ‘we will go into the next general election with the same tired choices, the same tired faces, the same tired ideas’.

Isn’t it about time we stopped granting these tired parties our support?
