[B]RITAIN AS A SOURCE OF IDEOLOGICAL CONTAGION
—“When I wrote my “state of exception as new paradigm of government” back in 2010/11 I was extremely dissatisfied with it and felt that I was doing conspiracy theory. In fa t, it was one of the charges was thrown way when I defended my thesis. Now, it seems to me that I was hopelessly naive in my conclusions. I thought that we were entering an era of police states what I did not realise was that we had been living it for 20 years. I was harsh on the Americans, soft on the Brits and harsh on the French. Whilst in fact the biggest, the most relentless champion of the total state is Britain itself.”—
