Histomat: Adventures in Historical Materialism

Reasons to be cheerful

1. 'America's worst nightmare', Evo Morales from the Movement Towards Socialism won the Presidential election in Bolivia - Paddington is no doubt writing a report from whereever he is now in Latin America for this blog about this step forward for the Left.

2. As noted earlier on this blog, John Prescott seems to have finally made his move against Blair, meaning that Blair is truly at the end of his reign - it seems inevitable he will go after Labour get hammered in May's local council elections, if not sooner.

3. I noticed from Dave Renton's site that the International Institute of Social History has produced nifty little 'e-cards' to send to people - but I can't really be bothered to go to that trouble - so this is just to wish readers of Histomat a happy new year for 2006.

Edited to add this: Vote for the top political moment of 2005 in the UK here...

Morales deserves critical support, to the extent he is pushed for reform by the mass movement.

Holiday Greetings.

And I´m afraid you´re unlikely to hear any of Paddington´s usual perspicacity on the subject, owning to the fact that he is (a) suffering from a dicky tummy, and (b) taking a short Christmas vacation. But his sources tell me that an article on Brazil is in the pipeline, so consider your breath bated.
