The Politics Clinic

Great mini-movie by documentary makers Juliet Brown and Adam Brichto, in which I try to explain the public-school type bullying – rooted in dissociation and projection – that has crippled UK politics for too long. Hope you like and can send it round, so we may film some others for the Speak Collective and try to wake up our political commentators.


Time to put parliament on the therapy couch…

  1. Hello Nick,

    Being an intellectual, I have to ask–what are British bulldog rules?

    Please let me know. regards Henry Lawson

  2. From Wounded Leaders, chapter three notes “A rough tag game where children line up on one side of the playground, and in the middle are one or two who are the British Bulldogs. On the command “British Bulldogs!” the non-bulldogs have to leave their line and attempt to gain the safety of the far line. The British Bulldogs then catch who they can by grabbing them and lifting them off the ground, whereby they are converted into British Bulldogs and swell the ranks for the next round. The game goes on until all are caught and become thoroughly British. Doubtless a preparation for foreigner elimination and life in Parliament, but I remember it as great fun, played during halcyon schooldays before boarding.”
