In the big time
The great Jim Denham, of Shiraz Socialist, has included me in his favourite three blogs (the token male in the elevated company of Hak Mao and Stroppyblog) in his Normblog profile. Jim's answers to every question are impeccable, apart from I wouldn't want those dinner party guests round my place. To keep the link love flowing, here are some recent Shiraz Socialist posts I liked: Betty Boop and Cab Calloway (Jim); In defence of Jazz Record Requests (Jim); No2EU is desperate, useless and reactionary (Charlie).
Late Pesach links
A freedom sedar, 1969, from Graeme. Edie Friedman of JCORE in the JC about the signifiance of Passover for refugees. (Follow the story here and here.)
Political Islam and clerical fascism
Two from Coatesy: Afghan Women's Protests Stoned; Debating Islamism.
Fascism, and other things
Will on Hillsborough 20 years on. Jim J: academics as immigration snoops? Phil AVPS: the BNP's "populist" politics. David T's enviable list of people who hate him.
More randomness from Airforce Amazons and Poumista. (By the way, Jim, as your cultural heroes are Louis Armstrong, George Orwell and Pablo Picasso, you'll like this Poumista post too.)
