First Nicolas Sarkozy then Boris Johnson ...

Who was it who said that history repeats itself, the first time as tragedy, the second time as farce? Marx probably. (Yes, I know I could google it and find out but hey, life's too short.)
France has now had just over a year of a celebrity obsessed president - it has truly been a triumph of style over substance.
London, it would seem has now elected a mayor who is one would have to say not even a triumph of style.
I am sad and concerned about the current state and the future of western European politics. No, I think despair would be a better word ...
