A new politics?

"The election has left many people wondering if politics has morphed into a wholly new condition" writes John Gray.

He reflects on whether politics really has been turned upside down by a momentous election.

He argues that the situation is not unprecedented but says "the election has punctured what was the ruling illusion of our age - the belief that we'd left behind the ideological antagonisms of the past".
