the intriguing thing abt my post-punk pal mark k-punk is that his “don’t vote it only encourages em” hippyoid disenchantment combines with slightly rear-view morleyism (objects in mirror appear closer than they are!!) and EXCELLENT old-skool pol-analysis um skeez

however – despite noting the big-brotherisation the parliamentary contest – even k-punk is in denial in ref my brilliant theory of “portillo’s long game” (which is of course to re-enter politics as its saviour via a post lab-con MASTERY of reality-TV era media at all levels) (= the desedimentation of the immanent politics of big brother/wife swapping/the apprentice/hell’s cabinet etc etc)
