International Socialism #147 out now



The latest issue of International Socialism is out now, with pieces including analysis of the British general election by Alex Callinicos, Gareth Jenkins and Despina Karayianni on Greece under Tsipras - highly topical given the recent impressive and inspiring No vote, and a host of other wide-ranging articles and goodies it is difficult to do justice to at the moment - given I am about to go off to protest myself at George Osbourne's Tory budget - and say 'Oxi to Osbourne!'

On the anniversary of 7/7

One of the strange things about having a blog - and keeping it going (well, just about...) for over a decade - is that when anniversaries come around, you think - 'hang on, I wrote something about that'. Anyway, for what it is worth - this is the piece I wrote in the aftermath of the 7/7 London bombings at the time: The roar of bombs and the deep sleep of England - for the record, my opinion about British foreign policy has not changed - and as the British ruling class prepare to contemplate a fresh imperialist slaughter in Syria, I guess it remains worth reposting.
