Oh dear. Perhaps the Eustonite Left needs its own Galloway? Or better by far, its own Boris Johnson?
Hitchens has his fans as an orator and he and Aaronovitch are both top writers (regardless what you think of their ideas) - weirdly neither have signed up to Euston, even though it encompasses much of what they've been saying for 5 years.
Geras speaks like a cantankerous old university lecturer addressing a particularly dim student and writes much the same way, like someone with a bad smell under his nose.
Alas there's only one Boris - and thank fuck there's just the one McHawHaw.
