Revolutionary left on TV
Channel Four carried a brief but delicious feature on the 'hard left' on Friday, including an interview with Mark Fisher of the CPGB in Highgate Cemetary and Martin Smith of the SWP at the SWP's smallish demo against capitalism at the Bank of England (complete with what Channel Four apologised for as 'offensive language': 'they say bankers, we say wankers'. The thrust of the report was to agree with Professor Tony Travers outside the LSE that the revolutionary left is hopelessly divided and impotent. Mark and Martin came over well though.

Hat-tip for this: Oliver Kamm I'm afraid to say. Come on left bloggers, you can't all have been out building the movement on Friday evening!
