The Independent Online
Reading your editorial "A triumph of conservatism" (14 April), I have fallen to wondering whether the Independent on Sunday is bidding to become the first postmodern newspaper. It does not matter that new Labour does not have a language in which to describe how it differs from the Tories, if it does. In the real, as opposed to the postmodern, world language is about contested meanings of the same words or phrases. What matters is whether, in practice, new Labour is going to do anything different, however described.
