Propelling the blog to dizzying heights were some ruminations on a couple of minor media scandals, if they can be called that, the demographic composition of the 'new politics', ans a reflection on one man's out-sized ego.
Posts deserving a second chance? Hmmm. Let's go for the Labour Party coup fantasy, because some people persist in believing in constitutional phantoms, and a farewell to Ellen Meiksins Wood, one of the finest Marxist minds of recent years.
