I would be quite surprised if a group led by sociologist Frank Furedi 
would ever amount to anything in the revolutionary socialist neck of the 
woods based on his musings in the University of Kent sociology 
department newsletter:

Tuesday: I am in a quiet state of agitation. The headlines are dominated 
by the outbreak of violence in the Middle East and no matter how hard I 
try, I cannot remember the name of the right-wing Israeli politician, 
whose visit to the Muslim shrine (whose name I can also not recall), 
sparked the whole thing off.

Wednesday: More violence in Israel. But things are looking up -- the
debate on sex education is in the news. That's more my kind of issue. 
Now if only there was another nice controversy about something with a
sociological edge.

Thursday: I am feeling depressed. The violence in the Middle East
dominates the news. The media have dropped the sex education debate.
