Star Wars as an analogy to New Labour

Rafael Behr at the Observer blog compares the disappointment of the Star Wars prequels to New Labour. I particularly like this bit about Labour’s second term:

Then came Attack of the Clones. A weakly scripted, poorly acted pastiche of what it could have been, dominated by a war launched with subterfuge and cynical manipiulation.
