A political observer could call Mr. Ganesh a Tory Hazlitt, who has accepted the notion of political compromise, as a coming to terms with the responsibilities of governance, as practiced in Western Democracies. Sometimes we must govern as part of a coalition because wholesale victory is out of our reach. Better to share power than to be an outsider, although dissidence has its place. That doesn’t sound too highfalutin for a thinker and stylist of Mr. Ganesh’s talent ? not to speak of literary – skill isn’t the word because he writes with verve and concision-is panache the almost correct descriptor? Mr. Ganesh has a penchant for considering himself like Messieurs Wolf ,Rachman, and Luce to be an integral part of an Elite that is under attack from the riff raff of both Left and Right. In Mr. Ganesh’s case he is unable to mask his contempt for Corby and Sturgeon, if it is masked with wit it can be tolerated, or even relished in an exercise of perverse admiration, but it is most times churlish:it displays a lack of wit that Mr. Ganash usually wields with dexterity.
