Deterritorial Support Group.

You take your life in your hands when you get involved with the mainstream media and many are the revolutionaries who have ended up being portrayed as Dave Spart figures or simply as not very bright; and perhaps not very well either. A nice exception to the above is in today's Guardian. The Deterritorial Support Group get a fair crack of the Dan Hancox whip but the main thing is that DSG come over as loads of fun. I just wish that their blog reflected this a bit more but it does prove that underneath the spoofery and tomfoolery this group are not short of an idea or two.

As we remember Hitchens who went from socialist to Bush cheerleader and 'barstool bombardier', my thoughts turn to all the revolutionary firebrands I've known who found it necessary (and profitable) to adjust their political positions as they matured.
Lib-Dem to unemployed Ikea anarchist, then - dare I predict? -to employed Lib-Dem.
Still, fun while it lasts.

Their graphic stuff is great, their written stuff interesting but a little heavy - if they could whittle it down to a comic book they may be onto a winner.

And almost on topic:

Great illustrated blog about London history may be of interest:
