BBC plug-a-book show slot for aging new left author
AUGUST 3, 2009
Readers of my previous comments on BBC plug-a-book show s won’t be surprised to hear that I didn’t last longer than about three minutes before turning one off last night. Needless to say, Mr Ali, like so many social theorists then and now, has never let facts stand in the way of whatever theory he happened to be espousing on any particular day (or in any particular book). As for how he came to get one of these prime plug-a-book slots, it’s anyone’s guess.
