Apologies for being a day behind with this one. But Jim Naugherty’s interview yesterday of German Foreign Minister, Joschka Fisher, is worth revisiting. It vividly demonstrates the gulf between public discussion here about the meaning of Europe and the kind of thing that is said across the Channel. We shouldn’t only blame Blair or Dennis McShane or, in their time, Peter Hain or Keith Vaz for this contemptuous and underhand treatment of the British public. No one from any British political party has revealed as vividly as Fisher the driving preoccupations of the European political elite.
A while ago the always interesting if, perhaps rather client-centred George Freedman concluded an article on Iraq with the words, “geopolitics always trumps conspiracy.” In terms of our EU debate we might well make that: geopolitics always trumps the need to explain anything to the common man.
One has the nasty suspicion that our political elite is convinced on the one hand of the absolute necessity to respond as a unified European entity to the redrawing of global power and influence beyond the reach of the nation state and, on the other, of the potential of the common man, if told of his marginalisation and impotence, to fuck it all up as fast as possible. So we have a deeply asinine debate conducted by the elite with Straussian detachment and with the minimum ideological division. The European project, meanwhile, just bowls along. Oh Maggie, where art thou?
In the piece I posted yesterday I displayed my ignorance - not in itself unusual, of course. But in this case I was specifically unaware of our equality-driven government’s new initiative on violence against women. No more.
The staggering thing is that neither Andrew Lansley nor, inexplicably, Ann Widdecombe rejected the idea wholesale or demanded to know what statistical evidence supports it.
Over the rich, indeed fabulously rich years since 1997 all the willing little helpers of the Blair-Mandelson Project have, like all large criminal enterprises, demonstrated that familiar, old habit of going legit. The clashing, renegade clamour of the first, orange-haired Lesbian Outreach Officers and Directors of Asian Women’s Collectives has modulated to the smooth, machine-like hum of (if not sober-suited, at least no longer dungareed) public sector professionals. The marxism is the same. But these days Blair’s helpers – those classes of being faultlessly assessed by Sean Gabb back in January 2001 - are infinitely more self-assured and certain in the permanence of their revolution.
And why not? It’s not as if the argument ever risked being lost. There was no argument, no public discussion at all. Marxism has no need to win over public support. It wins simply by seizing the manifold positions of power and unpacking its programme from there. So, today, what tangible opposition do public sector “professionals” encounter in their daily round of service delivery to the indolent, the ineducable, the criminal, husbandless, queer or “vibrant”. None from the ideologically moribund political right, that’s for sure.
In quiet moments, when the vibrancy calms down a bit, our new elite can reflect upon the killingly funny fact that The Project is entirely financed by the capitalist, middle-class - who can’t do a damned thing about it. Meanwhile, the traditional, working class Labour supporters - who could - are simply too engrossed in footy and Corrie to notice that they, too, are the reactionary enemy now. They simply carry on voting for their own cultural persecution, because it doesn’t hurt their pay packets.
But the greatest source of comfort to the Blairite public sector is surely of the spirit. The Project bestows upon those who have yearned for equality all their lives the chance to make their dream come true. The Project works, or so it appears. The cultural and racial landscape of Britain is being changed, or so it appears. A more egalitarian society – or, and this is no mere appearance, a more repressive one - is being engineered.
A survey of 5000 young British women has yielded some interesting results. On the one hand, the survey confirms the “ladette” trend in female culture. More than half of the women admitted they got drunk at least once a week, 45% had taken drugs, 35% smoked and 73% had slept with someone they wished they hadn’t.
But some more conservative attitudes have survived behind the party girl exterior. A very large majority, 81%, hoped to give up work whilst looking after their young children, 86% wanted to get married and 96% believed they would be able to be faithful in marriage.
On issues of national identity, 70% wanted Britain to leave the EU and 80% rejected the Euro.
The moral of all this? Perhaps not to be too glum about liberalism controlling the beliefs and behaviour of young people. On some issues, at least, conservatism is still the majority view, even amongst young, modern, trendy party girls.

What does the English-speaking world really know about politics and Belgium? If you register our existence at all, is it simply as a rather grey but worthy and pleasantly sensible little country. Or do we, perhaps, seem so burdened by the tragedies of 20th century history and, these days, so communautaire that we automatically eschew anything more divisive than the Federal Government’s consumption of paperclips?
Or do you suspect that beneath all that we might be a nation of ten million Noel Godins – every one an exponent of the whacky, cream-filled theatre of the absurd? Do you see a Belgium of uncontainable anarchism that laughs up its sleeve while consoling poor Bill Gates for his 1998 humiliation by Godin’s followers? (Well, not poor Bill Gates, exactly. I take that back. And, in Godin’s mitigation, what else does one do in Brussels but eat cake?)
The truth, of course, is that there are two sides to Belgium, facing in entirely different directions. But I shall come to that later. For now, you should know that we are neither politically boring nor anarchist street comedians. But our political masters, now that’s another matter. Our political masters know precisely how to deliver a calculated public humiliation with perfect timing and with all the sang froid in the world.
