Marcia Williams note

Historical Finds – The Press, the Prime Minister & Marcia Williams

If there is one thing I have tried to keep firmly away from my current work on The Labour Party, Spin and the 1997 and 1966 party machines it’s the relationship between Harold Wilson and his Personal and Political Secretary Marcia Williams (later Lady Falkender). It has proved to be an impossible goal as we can see here.

Stalin-Lenin-Trotsky-1919

Spin Control: Beware that Trotskyist!

The word is: Trotskyite. Or maybe “Trotskyist”. The question relates to why you, me and probably everybody else are nodding or shaking our heads at the use of the term.
