A rash of left founding statements!

Reading: BBC News website, Guardian website, Guardian Comment is Free Blogs, Urban 75, Indymedia, Morning Star, local paper, Robert Goddard and James Joyce.
Viewing: Lots of world cup football may account for some of lack of blogging this week!
Listening: Radio Five, Talk Sport, Manic Street Preachers.

Well, England did it, managed to get beyond the group stage. But not before putting the England supporters through the usual edge-of-seat, leaving-it-to-the-last-minute, playing-poorly (against-the-least-well-known-and-poorer-sides), nailbiting scenario that seems obligatory in English World Cup campaigns! Never mind, still great entertainment for anyone with even a mild interest in football. Argentina look to be playing some of the most exciting football so far.

On the political front the Green Left seems to be creating waves. An interesting thing is that manifestos of the left seem to be flavour of the month, what with the Euston Mob and now these founding statements from the SSP United Left and the now united German Left Party.

Anyhow, not much blogging time this week, too busy watching the football and preparing stuff for the demonstration in Sheffield on Saturday! Will let you know how it went.
