PETER HITCHENS: While our ruling classes enjoy their permanent holiday from reality, Britain continues to swirl down the drain – so the best reaction to the election forced on us by these vain, futile people will be to stay at home in our millions   While our ruling classes enjoy their permanent holiday from reality, Britain continues to swirl down the drain. I am bored and exasperated by political news, as I suspect millions of others are. But I read with disgust, and a total lack of surprise, of the case of Che Ambe, who hacked off another man’s hand in a suburban street.He will go to prison for a few years, and then be let out, to make way for all the other people like him.  Che Ambe, 21, carried out the savage attack. Read, if you can bear to, the account of the crime, in an ordinary suburb with the homely, comfortable name of Abbots Langley in Hertfordshire. Not that homely. Not that comfortableThey now exist in such numbers that we must all fear meeting them, sooner or later, in the street or perhaps in our own violated homes.The judge weirdly blamed Ambe’s parents for the chaos and violence of his life. What a silly thing to say. Does he have anyone who can really be called a parent – an adult related to him, with some authority and control over him? I shouldn’t think so.Read, if you can bear to, the account of the crime, in an ordinary suburb with the homely, comfortable name of Abbots Langley in Hertfordshire. Not that homely. Not that comfortable. Ambe, then 21, sliced Tyler Stevens’s hand off with a single blow of some sort of long, heavy knife. They found his hand later, but couldn’t sew it back on. He now has to have help cutting up his food.

But I’ve been unable to find more than a couple of people in Westminster who are even slightly prepared to think about it.This is a real problem. The calibre of men and women in full-time politics, and the calibre of most of those who report their doings, is pitiful. To my
