Radical: It's the new black.

Have you noticed how everyone is pushing the notion of needing more radical thinking this week?

It's featured in one of the most popular reads in the Lib Dem Voice Golden Dozen.

It's featured in the Observer.

I've even been at it myself.

So what a relief that Charlie Brooker provides a more balanced view.

For example (talking of Steve Hilton...):

"Anyway, most of the focus thus far has been on Hilton's laid-back dress sense and the Professor Branestawm wackiness of his ideas, which started out funny but seem less tittersome the more extreme they become. But what sticks in my craw is the sheer stinking, blunted crapness of them"

And he's got a point.
