Extreme Extremists Being Extreme

Hey, how come whenever the political class has a girly tantrum about extremism, it's never about the guys who take a nuanced position on mass murder?

Of course, there is something else. As Stan points out, it's not just that the political establishment is losing the battle of ideas, it's that they're not even fighting there. Look at The Dave: he's reaching out to C2 married couples in the East Midlands, gays who work in the service industries and Blacks who wear hats and don't watch 'The X-Factor', but in amongst all these targeted messages and niche marketing, where's the substance?
