Strange Death of England

'Partisans sometimes rejoice in seemingly historic triumphs that are followed by defeat and retreat, something that may yet apply to both the referendum, and Johnson’s win in 2019 (shades here of George Dangerfield’s famous critique of the Liberal landslide of 1906: “from that victory they never recovered”).' John Harris in the Observer yesterday reminded me of one of the best books I ever read, Dangerfield's Strange Death of Liberal England.

"The One Nationers are a psychological type. They see themselves as the party of the established order, but our establishment is no longer Tory, dominated as it is, from the NHS to HSBC, by the liberal-Left." Timothy Stanley in the Telegraph a week ago.
