I never liked Tariq Ali very much. Watching him on the Stop The War stages he always came across as part of this back-slappin' glitterati/litterati old left elite. Reading his book which I have linked to in the sidebar I found out that he certainly knows his shit about Pakistan and experienced Pakistan from a very interesting point of view at a very interesting time. He is talking at The Frontline club tonight at 7 (GMT),

UPDATE: Well that was really good. This man has a great insight into the Pakistani situation whether you agree with his politics or not. The whole presentation is online here
