Oh London, what have you done

I’ve tried to steer clear of this one.  I don’t live in London, so why do I care?

I care because he is the physical manifestation of the angry suburbs.  I care because he is the physical manifestation of a massive rise in voter turnout.

And that means that he is also the physical manifestation of the death of the New Labour project.  We knew Tony didn’t want to hand over power.  Now we know why.

On a lighter note, apparently he’s also the physical manifestation of the storm botnet.
