New Left Blogs

It's time for the latest crop of new and newish left blogs that have caught my eye over the last month. A number of anti-cuts blogs are starting to come through, which is a trend I expect will continue over the coming months. But once again, apart from the newcomer from the Socialist Party in Ireland, the organised far left are conspicuous by their absence. Are comrades too busy campaigning and selling papers to start blogs these days?

Phil. Thanks very much for the link to the blog. People might like to know that my book, The Debt Generation, my account of how bailing out the banks got us into this mess is available from today. Substantial excerpts are on the website http://www.debtgeneration.org. Thanks again. David Malone
