…a mixture of lefty blogs and some other stuff that caught my eye. Much like always really:

  • Jim Jepps on why seeing the back of NHS Direct might not be the end of the world.
  • Why is Malcolm X like David Cameron? Read Dave Osler to find out.
  • Also at LibCon, Sunny thinks the Guardian is being taken for a ride by the Tories over the Labour leadership.
  • Adam Curtis looks at how attitudes to debt in the UK have shifted, and why.
  • The BBC is coming under pressure to stop making jokes about class. Victoria Coren is worried, and you should be too.
  • Finally, Prisoner Ben needs your help – more specifically, your cash – so he doesn’t have to quit his PhD. Paul Sagar has more. Please give what you can.

Good selection, cheers.

From the Curtis article:

“I am intrigued by this argument because it is the first time I have seen someone take the financial crisis and put it in a political and historical perspective.”

This embodies for me one of the scariest things about the dialogue over the crisis: “but but I thought it was just an ECONOMIC thing, how come it can have political and historical implications and groundings!”
