Have you considered that the RCP's turn from ultra-left to populist
right wing contrarians is just a Trotskyite parallel to the dissolution
of the British Commnist Party and its fellow travellers?

As the current around the CP magazine Marxism Today tended towards New
Labour's grotesque post-Thatcherite Christian Democracy, so Furedi and
the RCP have ended as enthusiasts for GM foods, fox-hunting, dams in
developing countries and Serbian POW camps.

The CPers are more mainstream than the RCPers, and less entertaining,
but then they always were.
