  1. I was lucky enough to hear him address an anti-war rally towards the end of the intervention by NATO in the former Yugoslavia. Sadly I remember very little about it, except, that in rather an ironic turn of events, the authorities insisted the rally had to finish outside the Imperial War museum. Quite a big protest if I remember correctly, a sad precursor to the even larger ones we had to have a few years later when Blair really got into his stride.

    • That’s around the time he came to my attention as a political person. When all of the left-liberals and progressives were lining up to support NATO in the name of humanitarianism it was rare to see a rebuttal. I remember him, in his particular voice, calling the NATO strikes a ‘bandit action’. It was brave of him then, a bravery he showed to the end.

  2. You should have posted the whole of Pinter’s Nobel Prize acceptance speech. I loved the way he spit in the face of American gloating.

    Thanks getting this much out though.
