Interesting line from Greg Sheridan:

Just as it is incredible that a young British-born man, of whatever origin, could become a suicide bomber on the London Underground, so it is incredible to think that in the 1930s some of Britain’s elite, best educated and most privileged students and academics could sign up to communism and the service of the Soviet Union.

Marxism-Leninism was always a completely insane ideology, with its historical determinism and dreary and dogmatic materialism. Its monstrous amorality – anything was justified in the name of the revolution – is at least as perverted as anything al-Qa’ida has come up with. And in Stalin, Mao and Pol Pot it produced three of the greatest mass murderers of the 20th century (their only rival is Hitler).

Hmmm. Might explain why tragi-commies like George Galloway still empathise with the Citizens for Jihad, even after they’ve turned against him.
