Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I think he has written some pretty pro-European and anti-Bush stuff

Yes, he did - but he always argued for close ties across the Atlantic, to the extent that it castrated the pro-European and anti-Bush points he made. As a result, his Bush criticisms could be compared to that of DLC Democrats, and his European vision wasn't confortable. (Back when I read the Guardian every day - 2003 -, I used to read every column of his - but after a while got enough of it.)

No comment on his credentials as historian.
