The three arse-lickers of British Capitalism

One week into the general election and the nation now awaits the first TV debate to be broadcast live this very evening. The three main party leaders go head to head in this historical event that may or may not turn the electorate on or off, with opinion pollsters still predicting a close race and a hung parliament, it remains to be seen what impact the debate has. I can imagine that tomorrow’s newspapers will be churning-out what they would like us to think as usual.

The debates themselves must be a god send to the establishment parties whose members have in recent years left in droves and swarms. It says a great deal about the state we are in when you consider that many young people do not engage in politics as they did 30 years ago.

I have decided after all that I will watch the debate this evening, and so will be digging out my old TV set during the course of the day, setting it up with a coat-hanger servicing as an areal and hopping that the TV licencing people don’t call around.

My only interest is one solely of fastidious curiosity and intrigue, which I know killed the cat, but I want to try and savour this occasion and just observe the three arse-lickers of capitalism in action!

Great post title!

I still don't know if I want to watch it. Will I be conforming to a stereotype of a society of celebrity, all fluff and no content?

I expect I will though as Mrs H want to watch it.
