    Apparently I am. Though, I - like most people - have little or no idea what one is.

    The fantastic writer George Monbiot tries to define it here

    But even then it seems like nailing jello to a wall. Just listening to radio 4 for couple of days you will hear it used in several different areas. Eventually it just ends up being some catch all term for things that left wingers don't like.

    Moreover no one to my knowledge professes to be one. It's difficult to think of another ideology which exists but no one claims to be. Even neoconservativism has its' adherents.

    Fighting neoliberalism is like fighting ghosts. A waste of time.

    Politics makes me cry.
