Richard Littlejohn says today there are no great issues and big ideas in UK politics.
Please Richard, read Hansard for this week. We are battling to try to keep a Parliamentary democracy in these islands, against a government which wishes to give what remains of our important powers of self government away.
We are battling to preserve and extend our civil liberties, damaged by this governmentâ€™s surveillance society.
We are battling to try to deregulate the UK, to cut through the jungle of red tape, quangos and political correctness.
And yes, some of us are battling for lower taxes as well.
I would have thought that might count as some big ideas!
