Stuart Hall on the state of neo-liberalism in Britain

An interesting piece, though it perhaps ignores some of the contradictions currently ensuring the Coalition government - with its unpopular agenda of cuts and privatisation - is currently incredibly weak. What is perhaps missing in particular is the most profound contradiction, one with the potential to undermine the neo-liberal economic agenda - the growing signs of a rising arc of class struggle in Britain and internationally - which offers the best hope of resisting not only the Tories but also any attempt to make neo-liberalism 'hegemonic'.
