Why must the British be forced to reflect upon and celebrate the life of a shunnamatic old twister who seemed to hold everything we stand and stood for in contempt? Writing in 1962, VS Naipaul described post-Gandhi India as a nation 'constantly exchanging banalities with itself'. One cannot help but think that our obsession with Gandhi shows we're going the same way.

Oh, he's up there with that other vapid poster boy, Che. I suppose Gandhi didn't directly kill people in the way that Che did, but you can see the eyes of Ed Balls and Milliband and their ilk glaze over when these charalatans come to mind.

They probably have "Imagine" playing in their minds' ears at the same time
