Great quote

Great quote from Gramsci in Nick Cohen's piece in last Sunday's Observer. Cohen was referring to the country under Brown: "The old is dead and the new cannot be born; in this interregnum, many morbid symptoms appear". Quite poetically true.

The other quote I've come across from Gramsci is: 'Pessimism of the intellect, optimism of the will'. Which doesn't seem a bad approach to recommend to the next Tory Chancellor who will have such an unpleasant task putting things back together again.
