Wheatcroft wrote an article about the Euston Manifesto, of which he is an integrant, and concluded:

Maybe the Euston group should be less nervous of "leftist colonisers" as a term of abuse. They are, after all, right that the US and EU member states are democracies, and that the Arab countries are not. There is a plausible slogan to be added to their manifesto: "Progressive, democratic, imperialist, and proud of it." They might even provide some recruits for a new colonial office.[1]
