Euston. We have a problem
I can't believe that the Euston He-Man Manifesto Ninjas are still around.
At any rate, I don't recognize a lot of these names, so I'll stop.In fact the original signatories of the Euston Manifesto were a bunch of fringy type self-proclaimed deepthinkers who needed something to rally around because no one took their individual voices seriously. After they formed their little club, they were a topic of conversation for about...oh, seven minutes. Adding the "star power" of national joke Marty Peretz is their attempt at reclaiming the title of "classical liberals" which sounds much better than "pompous jerkoffs".
It looks better on a business card too...
