Phil said...

You're welcome.

There was so many I've had to carry some new blogs over to next month's. I would like to see more SP, SWP and other revolutionary socialist bloggers have a crack at things. Seems there's very little coming from this direction these days.

Darren said...

Erm,

how can a blog entitled 'The Luxemburgist' be listed as unaligned? ;-)

blackstone said...

Looking real good. Gonna check these out!

Phil said...

Out of interest, Darren, what are the SPGB's settled thoughts on Rosa Luxemburg?

Sophie J said...

Phil said...

You were name-checked a few months ago, Sophie.

Sophie J said...

Whoops sorry Phil, I didn't realise, I thought that was my link on the comment I made about Derrick Bird. Beg pardon. Thanks for the name check you did, and wishing you all the best.

Cheers for the link to Everybody Hates a Tourist! And it's an interesting point about the lack of new blogging activity from the far left. There doesn't seem to be that much new appearing from the anarcho/left communist crowd either.

Possibly we're just in a bit of a fallow period for some reason.

Phil said...

I can imagine what some poe-faced parts of the far left will be saying:

"We're too busy campaigning to write about it."
