Thank you for your comments on my post, much appreciated! My numbers shot up on both twitter and my blog. Are you an internet rookie? Because you have transgressed one of the first rules that almost all bourgeois ‘pundits’ observe: NEVER reply to a twitter bottom feeder! No matter what the provocation.
Some advice: as a former speech writer for Mr. Blair you need to diversify your reading, to include other Neo-Liberal apologetic publications like The Financial Times, The Economist – break out of your Times rut and explore, even publications like The New Left Review, and one of its best writers Perry Anderson, he also writes for The London Review of Books. Perhaps farther that you would like to go?. As an actual member of the Left, I find reading and commenting at the FT particularly rewarding.
I’m a bit disillusioned since The Economist has started publishing its ‘1843’, the editors now finding sucking up to the rich, or readers pretending to be wealthy, of more importance than publishing attacks on The Labour Party under the leadership of Political Apostate Jeremy Corbyn.
