I’ve had some interesting interviews on my book Democracy Kills: What’s So Good About Having The Vote — but none more engaging or challenging than today’s with a a journalist from The Morning Star — that promotes itself as the only English-language socialist daily in the world.
So I Googled its latest op-ed. Here’s an exceprt:-
We don’t have to sit there worrying that our jobs are going to be flushed down the toilet, our homes are going to be repossessed and our future mortgaged for a generation to bail out a pack of overpaid and underachieving bankers.
It’s a choice that is in our own hands. Sure, we can accept that there’s no real difference between the free-marketeers of the Tory Party and the grovelling class traitors of new Labour, but we don’t have to accept the inevitability of one of those two unappetising items being on the menu of our 2010-2011 Christmas dinner.
