Stephen Pollard is a prominent British writer, and a long time leftist. However, the war with Islamic fascism and the behavior of the left in response has led him to change his mind in at least some major regards. In response to the Euston Manifesto (recently discussed on AT here), he has written his own declaration, the Maida Vale Manifesto. The closing paragraph is,
" Theoretical arguments about what is or is not a proper left—wing position are now meaningless. The mainstream Left has demonstrated clearly which side of the battle to preserve Western civilisation and freedom it is on. The Left, in any recognisable form, is now the enemy."
