Paul Mason: “The Conservatives who come after Boris Johnson will be more dangerous”

The journalist and broadcaster explains why the far right is resurging in the UK and across the world.

By George Eaton and Chris Stone

The rise of the far right in the US, the UK, Brazil, India, France and elsewhere is one of the defining themes of our time. In his new book How to Stop Fascism (published 26 August 2021), Paul Mason explores the roots of this phenomenon and asks how progressives can fight back.

In this video interview, Paul Mason talks to the New Statesman’s George Eaton about issues including the growth of far-right terrorism in the UK, the legacy of Trumpism, the rise of eco-fascism and what will come after Boris Johnson.
