The Wetstraat was as stoned as a shrimp this weekend. There was a lot of self-confidence at the New Year’s receptions. No voter understands this cocktail of happy dances and bitter outbursts, but it is the vital drug to keep militants on board and executives happy. Self-abuse between glass and amuse-bouche, anyone who sees the pictures would think we’re going to the polls tomorrow. The control pee is to get as many people together as possible and loudly present that number as proof that the party is in a much better position than the outside world thinks and screams. In the real world there are still 500 days to rule.
