Have you read any of Aaronovitch's stuff? If he criticizes Laughland I
would regard that to be to Laughland's credit.

Here's an example of his politics..........


"Right now, in Iraq, a disparate bunch of extraordinarily brave men and
women are trying to bring about a new future. They are Shia clerics,
communists, academics, trade unionists, Kurdish autonomists and even
some feminists. The kind of people that George Galloway, who supped with
the Saddamites even as these others languished in jail, calls - using
his trademark moral inversion - "quislings". They're the ones who will
be risking everything to register their compatriots to vote, to
formulate a new constitution and give birth to a new Middle East. No
wonder then, that other corrupt regimes and violent bigots so loathe
them."
