Bromley and Karl Marx - A Very Unlikely Combination...

...and yet there is an emerging parallel.

In The First Communist Manifesto, Marx and Engles famously postulated that: "A spectre is haunting Europe — the spectre of communism".

Karl was certainly right about the spectre but, from the recent deluge of literature generated by the residents of Bromley, the spectre appears to be that of dog fouling.

In this sense, it appears that dog fouling has filled the political void created by the demise of the proletariat and emergence of the middle classes. Class consciousness has been superseded by an all enveloping need, at all levels of society, to eliminate the menace of dog fouling.

In Karl's day, it was fair to say that: "The history of all hitherto existing society is the history of class struggles". Today, it has become an ongoing history of dog fouling, with red rubber bands making an occasional appearance.

Now, we have this latest offering from R Clark of Biggin Hill. Our grateful thanks to the Biggin Hill News for creating the opportunity for this topic to be aired so freely.

In the true blue heartland, which is Bromley, we see the emergence of Karl's legacy.

While some of you might be shocked at this, at least Karl knew how to smash a gas lamp!
