    ...a double whiskey, or to be precise Whiskey Whiskey. What makes me think about this is the repositioning of the political parties toward the centre ground. Now the party I vote for has always occupied that ground and we shall for want of a better term refer to them as Whigs, and for sure the emerging Conservative certainly has a patriarchal 'Wet' feel to it. So what I'm basically running through my head is the state of Parliament after the next election. Could we have a blended Whiskey Whiskey government or again a young and immature single malt?

    Obviously, the pubs shut early round his way.
  3. I have been consiodering the Neue Arbeit centre stalwarts as a bit Whiggy for some time. they don't have the support of many traditional whig noble families but when you look at the social roles and positions in society most NA MPs come from, then it starts to look like the opposition benches in the time of Lord Salisbury!

    Sorry for the tardy reply been at school and work. Personally (althought I'm not a socialist, nor have I ever been :twisted: ) I like my left politicians to be just that. If the Labour party has no intention of being left/socialist their raison d'etre ceases to be in my opinion. When it comes to the centre(right)-ish politics then we historically have the Wets and Whigs. The Labour movement has been around for about 100 years, and to continue the metaphor is an immature single malt as opposed to whiskeys with good age. To my mind if they are all going to scramble for the centre ground its last one in, first one out.
