We’re still wrestling with the Weberian thing of status and the positioning of people as consumers rather than producers, especially in today’s world. We haven’t kept up properly with all this.

Pat Rabbitte brought this consumerist language into politics when he referred on a number of occasions to the Labour Party ‘brand’-the idea being that if the party brand image was altered it would ‘sell’ better. It is surely a debasement of political culture when it’s proposed that the party of Connolly should be marketed as a commodity to the political consumers.
