We haven’t done one of these for a while, not least because I haven’t been blogging enough. Here are some ideas
The Populist Papers: this will probably be either AFOE or maybe Politico Europe, and it’s an effort to define what the key traits of populism (European meaning, negative LaFollette) are. My thinking is that it’s mostly a technique of politics, and that’s what’s interesting about it.
Google Editor: basically, if you want Google to do something about the Twitter-nazis, be careful what you ask for as turning a bunch of big Californian corporations into admitted rather than veiled editorial authorities might have some unintended consequences.
Something about the French socialists and how they were the real model for Blairism, New Democrats etc. Troll potential considered gnarly but I think it’s important it was them who decided that the “choix de’l Europe” was also the “tournant de la rigeur”, not once but four times by my count.
Follow up on neo-Edwardians and what the fuck to do about it.
So anyway, for my next trick I’ll need a blogosphere. Step right up!
