Reduced social bonding in Britain

Opposition to the continuing reduction of all social and inter-personal bonds to legal relations seems to unite both the left and right in British politics.

Scratch beneath the surface, however, and you soon find very different thinking. For the right the enemy is the imposition of the so-called politically correct agenda against traditional British practices. For the left the issue is the insertion of repressive and capitalist relations into the community to frustrate solidarity.

The right and left may seem to coalesce on this issue, but only on the surface.
