I like both these guys. They’re inspirational. Interested to see them in a conflict of ideas. Its the kind of archetypal political disagreement. Hannan thinks its better to be in the tent, while Hitchens prefers to piss on it from the outside.
There’s a secondary question there too that I suspect we all grapple with. Is it worth trying to change a party like the UK Conservatives (so far gone), or is a completely new party a better alternative?
And it is universal in that it applies in NZ with the Nationals and in the US with the Republicans.
I suspect its one of those things where you dither over a decision for a possibly unwise degree of time in the hope that something will happen that will make that decision easier.
