Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Yes, but it's also worth pointing out that most of the Marxism Today people ended up signing the Euston Manifesto. Praising "muscular (neo)-liberalism for attacking the correct enemies, they failed to notice or even care who was in the driving seat or what the final destination might be.

Stalin had a phrase for them, "useful idiots".

I don't think Jacques went that far, but by being part of Demos he's certainly a paid-up Blairite. So he might as well have signed the damn thing.
