Pinstripe Radicalism

As already noted by Paul Walters and Linda Jack, there is a very significant piece in today’s Indie.

The article is based on a ‘leaked’ document, outlining a strategy to remark Ming as a ‘pinstripe radical’ and show to the public that radical side and anti-establishment ethos that he shows in private.

This sounds to me like a sound statement of principles. Ming must play to his strengths – and he has many. But there is no reason why a dissenting interrogation of modern society shouldn’t come from someone who is clearly held in esteem by that same establishment he targets. I hope we are moving into a period of greater emphasis on policy substance and principle, rather than presentation and media management. Let’s hope our pinstripe radical thrives, as he deserves to, in that environment.
