The Galloway affair - The fake left continues to rot - "Isn?t it that much of the left, or more accurately the pseudo-left, no longer defines itself positively, in terms of what it is for? No longer measures political organisations, classes and regimes by how they relate to what we ourselves fight for? Instead, the 'left' defines itself negatively, by what it is against. It is against capitalism. Against imperialism. Against America. It is on the side of whomever at any given moment is against them ? on the side, even, of those who are worse. Saddam Hussein?s Iraq was certainly worse."
