Maoism Today

Running Britain? Even if not, then certainly all over the place under Western patronage – in Kosovo (where it is charmingly mixed up with Wahhabism and Nazism), in Nepal, in Rwanda (again, as part of a thoroughly noxious brew), in three Indian states, and in the neocon favourite lately running Portugal but now running the European Commission, to name but a few.

From the other side of the Sino-Soviet Split, compare and contrast the Today programmes fawning treatment of Eric Hobsbawm with its very different approach to Archbishop Bernard Longley. In fact, consider that the BBC allowed Hobsbawm on at all. Would it do that for David Irving?
