[Xmca-l] Re: Stuart Hall obituary

"His conviction that Thatcherism would define the politically possible,
long after Thatcher herself had departed, proved enormously prescient,
providing a key to understanding the politics not only of New Labour, but
also of the subsequent coalition."


"The left is in trouble. It's not got any ideas, it's not got any
independent analysis of its own, and therefore it's got no vision. It just
takes the temperature: 'Whoa, that's no good, let's move to the right.' It
has no sense of politics being educative, of politics changing the way
people see things."
