Have you read much from Blond?

I've been reading his new book, Red Tory. Interesting ideas.

I think I appreciate his critique more than his proposed solutions.

Distributism has a funny smell...

I bought Red Tory this week and I've read the intro. Interesting so far, especially his critique of Left and Right. Looks like Blond may be to the Cam-Cons what Will Hutton was to New Labour. Although with Hutton New Lab just pinched his buzz word "stakeholder" and used it as a label for a rubbishy pension product. Such is the fate of political gurus.

'Such is the fate of political gurus.'

So it seems!

I'm waiting to see what happens with Blond. From what I can see Cameron doesn't owe him too much presently.
