This one popped into my head whilst driving home from work yesterday. I’ve been teaching Animal Farm as of late for GCSE and actually spent most of an hour-long lesson trying to explain to my Year 10 class the political continuum. Wish I’d thought of this then as an analogy (might use it for revision purposes when we come back to it later!):
Centre-‘I’ll have what you’re having’
Centre-right-it’s not a meal unless it has meat in it.
I don’t mean all vegans are hardcore leftists (or vice versa), rather the political spectrum is a bit like dietary choices in its sliding scale.
