> There's also a short piece about the manifesto in today's Wall Street Journal:
At first blush, the Euston Manifesto doesn't seem explosive. Conceived in a London pub and hashed out online, and signed by left-wing, mostly British academics and journalists, it declares itself for democracy and freedom of ideas, and against racism and terror. OK, great. Torn by the Iraq war and the fight against terrorism, Britain's left, like some in the U.S., could use a few reminders of what is at stake.
It's a welcome development; Britain's political debate will benefit from the Eustonites.
