The six most popular stories this week

  1. Why I will miss Denis MacShane – the latest parliamentarian to step down over expenses was never popular on the left, says Carl Packman, but he did some sterling work against anti-Semitism
  2. Sinn Féin show a progressive, left way forward – Jayne Fisher argues that the party is working against austerity north and south of the border to the end of a united Ireland
  3. Young Labour conference: potentially unaffordable under new structure – never mind the potential for fixing, stopping constituencies sending delegates to Labour’s youth conference could mean many activists cannot afford to attend. Conrad Landin explains how.
  4. Hitchens, the “kitsch-left”, and the cult of the individual – it is ludicrous to commemorate Bush enthusiast Christopher Hitchens with a statue, says Conrad Landin. And why should writers be remembered in this form anyway?
  5. ANC, Sinn Fein: when radicals move right – David Osler charts the similarities between two forces which once focused on extra-parliamentary means, but have now found themselves in permanent government
  6. The left are more realistic about the working class vote than some think – Carl Packman strikes back against the Progress myths that the left has a distorted view of the 5 million working class votes lost under New Labour.
