Blighted Albion

I’ve long seen Britain as a bellweather for progressive politics.  Everything the Left wants in America, has already happened in Britain — and with truly disastrous results.

For a pithy summary of Britain’s horrible decline, don’t miss Melanie Phillips’ essay describing the ways in which Barack Obama reminds her of Tony Blair, and her description of Tony Blair’s goals and accomplishments.  It may be (probably is) too late to save Britain, but we can still see it as a horrible example, and make sure that we don’t simply become supine and let an Obama administration take us in that direction.
