    Well, he's gone again now. Just dropped by to unload his monthly dose of scorn.

    One of the things I was trying to get at in the interesting ethnic pathways thread is the way in which conservatism is forced to fictionalise in the absence of any sustained tradition. After industrial revolutions and world wars and globalisation and the 1960s unending of everything. After the gays and the feminists and the civil rights movement. When everything has been blown apart. And as a result it ends up as ludicrous kitsch.

    You can see that here with the harking back to world pre 1960s. The rat pack suits with the narrow black ties. The side parted hair for men and the lopsided, would be rakish grin. You can see it in the tweed jackets which hark back to an aristocratic society which failed to survive the 20th century. Grouse moors and butlers. It's a kind of play acting that takes its cues not from a lived and living sustained tradition but from the entertainment industry. Period costume dramas. Mad Men. I'm very very surprised Oliver is susceptible to this as it is a serious lapse of taste.

    And I think Barty is right when he says part of it is a drive to create a kind of white identity.

    'Quilette' is clearly intended as the thinking man's Spiked, as has already been mentioned, but that's at odds with its name, which is that of an upmarket feminine sanitary product.

    in this instance, it's particularly an aspirational white identity. so being a hippy or goth won't do. we have to go all the way back to gregory peck to find a role model.
