Saatchi : In Praise of Ideology

Lord Saatchi has apparently just published a pamphlet analysing the election defeat of the Tories.

I won't be parting with £7.50 to get my own personal copy; but, a BBC interview with Saatchi seems to underscore the common failure of both mainstream political parties in Britain.

Saatchi diagnoses the situation and suggests "four essentials" for a new leader :
  • a noble purpose
  • a sense of direction
  • a fight against injustice
  • a destination.

Neither mainstream party is currently exhibiting these "essentials".
