Louis: Is "slagging off" good or bad? Do "wankers" abuse themselves by
slagging off?

You are absolutely right about Michael Moore. In the Socialist Party I am
attempting to help construct, someone like Michael Moore would be a
central leader. I also expect that this party would make as imaginative
use of the internet as Moore has made of TV. Humor is essential to left
politics. The dead hand of Stalinism and Trotskyism has had a baneful
effect on political expression for decades now. It's time for a change.
