Blajorism n. A cross-party political consensus typified by the leadership of John Major and Tony Blair, in which a leader with no strong convictions offers a likable but bland personality to the electorate, in place of the atavistic and deeply unattractive beliefs of his party. The inherently deceptive nature of Blajorism fosters doublethink, spin, and sleaze; while its cross-party support leads to political stasis at worst, or a slow drift that is eventually terminated by the next political revolution. Cf. Butskellism.
