Polly did it again

Yesterday I rabbited on about the problem of indignant people rabbiting on in the news.

I didn't put it very eloquently, but Polly Toynbee does so excellently today. Here's part of what she says:

Indignant personal anecdote is eagerly devised by producers who think politics boring and abuse makes good TV - but it illuminates nothing about politics or the ideological divides between the parties. Personal anecdote drives out ideas and only encourages the dismal view that politics is all me, me, me and what my MP will deliver me, shopping not voting.

If only I could be so talented as her.
