relevant proposal to the Council, then the whole process stops right there since there is no alternative open for the applicant member states. The Council, acting by QMV on a proposal from the Commission and after consulting the EP (or with its assent if the proposal concerned relates to an issue area covered by co-decision), will give authorisation to set up such flexible integration schemes. Any operating expenditure will be borne by the participating members, whereas the expenditure associated with EU institutions will be borne by the general budget. There is also a

considered it to be an essential element of ‘colonial interests and control’. The above quoted example on ‘cleanliness’ is a good example of this discursive strand. Social evolution is closely bound to Western education – there is no alternative to it from the colonial point of view, but in promoting female education Guggisberg ignored that

As there is no alternative represented in the image, it is the ideology of capitalism that is seen to offer a better life, whether in colony or Commonwealth. ‘Power is the business of English Electric . . . bringing you a better life’ is the advertising slogan, which summarises the arguments at the bottom of the page.

Critical theory and epistemology presence, and the co-​presence of the absent and the present … and with alterity, [and] sheer difference’.32 My argument is that co-​inclusion and polyvalence allowed politics to configure scientific temporality instead of tolerating dialectics to engage in the unmediated past and future of the sciences. Such an all-​inclusive presumption of dialectics, situated within the multiplicity of causes of an open scientific system that excludes the ‘there is no alternative’ formative consents, becomes then the all-​inclusive theory of

Even the EU’s Constitutional Treaty, which had caused the PS much trouble and would almost certainly have caused Labour problems if it had been put to a referendum, was enthusiastically embraced by the SPD.

under the weight of world events. One finds such a rise and fall narrative repeated right across the political spectrum. Of course, the political right has successfully peddled its post-​1989 triumphalism for some time now, merrily proclaiming the ‘end of history’ in the consolidation of free market capitalism and liberal democracy. While Margaret Thatcher boasted ‘there is no alternative’, many commentators (most famously Francis Fukuyama) eagerly joined the symbolic burial of socialism. Given the right’s scale of ideological investment in preserving and

Sissy’s Progress is a desire to respond to the social conditions of the real world as they exist in the present moment, in large part because there is no alternative but the present and because a response to violence and the threat of violence cannot be postponed. In their recent chapbook Before I Step Outside (You Love Me) (2017), queer performance artist Travis Alabanza describes the ritual of taking a selfie before stepping outside to ‘remind myself of how I looked in that moment. To archive my existence before physical danger’. Though to be black, trans and femme

the denial or repression in a redemptive narrative that excludes or devalues trauma, presenting values and ideas as viably realized in facts. The second problematic method aggravates trauma, insisting there is no alternative to ‘symptomatic acting-out’ beyond a purely imaginary hope for totalization of full disclosure. However, following Jacques Derrida, LaCapra offers a third potential, proposing a use of theory that coalesces criticism with self-criticism without recourse to narratives of redemption or salvation (1996: 192–4).
