Crisis in Democracy

The British political class – like many of its Western counterparts – is too disconnected from the public to understand what makes people tick. This isolation is the inexorable consequence of a growing disassociation of politics from people’s lives. As the 2005 General Election campaign has shown, political issues are rarely generated from below; rather, they are fabricated by professional consultants who are in the business of selling party brands and images.
