My pal Alex


I am indebted to fellow blogger Trevor Loudon for providing this picture of my old pal Alex Callinicos.

I just wanted to add a quick note so Trevor doesn’t have to bother anyone for another pic. I met Alex about twenty-something years ago when he was in Australia. Unfortunately we haven’t kept in touch.

At the time I was on the national executive of the International Socialists group and Alex and I had a nice chat about factional issues while sitting on the grass in Sydney’s Hyde Park.

Note to Trev: If you ring ASIO they can probably send you a photo of me and Alex “on the grass” for your blog.
The photo of Alex you published shows he’s put on weight, but then none of us are spring chickens any more.

Alex is a well-known and respected Marxist intellectual. He’s widely published by major academic presses and is a remarkable thinker about philosophy, politics and materialism.

UNFORTUNATELY TREVOR FORGOT TO MENTION ALEX CALLINICOS IS A PROFESSOR AT KING’S COLLEGE AT THE UNIVERSITY OF LONDON
