Who is this guy? Was he ever some kind of left winger? Or has he 
always made his living as an ex-leftist? He seems proud of his 
status as an enemy of the left. From his proud self-portrait:

Since he began work as a journalist, Johann has been attacked in
print by the Daily Telegraph, John Pilger, Peter Oborne, Private Eye,
the Socialist Worker, Cristina Odone, the Spectator, Andrew Neil,
George Galloway, Mark Steyn, the British National Party, Medialens,
al Muhajaroun and Richard Littlejohn. 'Prince' Turki Al-Faisal, the
Saudi Ambassador to Britain, has accused Johann of "waging a private
jihad against the House of Saud". He's right. Johann has been called
"a Stalinist" and "beneath contempt" by Noam Chomsky, "an uppity
little queer" by Bruce Anderson, "fat" by the Dalai Lama and "a cunt"
by Busted.
