Party Colors

For John, BLUFOr "colours" if you are on the East side of the pond.  Nothing to see here; just move along.

I have always thought the assignment of the color Red to Republicans and Blue to Democrats was a sign of historic ignorance.  As the linked article shows, Blue is the color of Conservatives and Red of "Revolutionaries".  The chart gets the colors right—Blue for Tories (Conservatives) and Red for Radicals (Labour).

Maybe Trumpism has turned that upside down, as this NYT Article suggests— "Is Trump Wrecking Both Parties?".

Yes, Ned, I still like Maggie Thatcher.

Hat tip to Guido Fawkes.
