A prominent New Labour journalist, Roy Greenslade, has finally admitted he is a lifelong supporter of IRA violence. You should care, even though you may think Mr Greenslade is obscure and unimportant.
For it is yet another of those lightning-flashes which reveal something I have been trying to tell you for years and which you do not want to believe.
New Labour, whose ideas have now captured the Tory Party too, is a revolutionary party, rooted in Marxism and loathing of Britain as it used to be.
I’ll be back to that. But first, Mr Greenslade. He is a close friend of Alastair Campbell, the ruthless bullying commissar, elected to nothing by anybody, who was given unheard-of ministerial powers when New Labour entered Downing Street. This was the first vital step of Blair’s constitutional revolution. But Mr Campbell doesn’t like talking about his old pal Roy.
