Don’t you know who I am?

Douglas Carswell MP clearly doesn’t.

(I don’t, by the way, suggest that the Left is the ‘party’ of English radicalism and the Levellers. Indeed, one of the points of the book is that those sorts of political appropriations are usually a distortion of the nature of radicalism in its specific historical contexts. However, such retrospective genealogies are nonetheless politically and historically significant because they continue to influence what politicians do and how they argue.)

He is, though, spot on in suggesting that I have not read The Plan.
