Harry Potter Politics

Cornelius Fudge = New Labour and some politicians in general - arch general denyists that there is anything wrong at all with the country.

Mr. Fudge vehemently denies that Voldemort is back with all the ensuing terror that this foul prospect would entail. Our politicians on the other vehemently deny that the EU is a problem that Islam is in fact a "religion of peace" and that the war in Afghanistan is actually going well.

I think we can all draw the conclusion that J.K. Rowling got her inspiration for Mr. Fudge from the British political establishment. And that is the sad part.
