Unlike in the United States, where the economic crisis has led people to re-examine their assumptions that government is more often the problem than the solution, in Britain the politics discredited are those of the center-left.

“We need a massive, sweeping, radical redistribution of power, from the state to citizens, from the government to Parliament, from Whitehall to communities, from Brussels to Britain, from judges to people, from bureaucracy to democracy. . . . We must take power away from the political elite and give it to the man and woman on the street.”
