    His obituary in today’s Times says he was “a lifelong socialist”. In 1997 he told the London Evening Standard that he had once been a member of our party. As the February 1998 Socialist Standard reported: —

    “Asked if his political consciousness had been awakened by meeting members of the ruling class at Cambridge University he replied:
    “Actually. I was a member of something called the Socialist Party of Great Britain at school for a while. You had to pass an exam, you known. You could not just join” (Evening Standard, 3 December).”

    That would have been in Nottingham in the mid 1950s as a result of the outdoor meetings we held there.
