The strange murder of liberal Britain

John Pilger exposes the lie of 'social liberalism' under Blair and Brown. My comrades over at Through the Scary Door probably rightly accuse Pilger of 'ultra-left moralism' for among other things, quoting the late Norman Mailer's view of contemporary America as 'pre-fascist', but I like the way Pilger always effectively exposes the limitations of capitalist 'liberal democracy' by judging it on its own terms, ie. by the professed ideals of liberalism and democracy.
