40 years in the Labour Party

Forty years ago today, I joined the British Labour Party. At the time I was aged 20 and a university student.
I wrote in my diary on 22 April 1969: “”Today, after about 18 months of slowly drifting Leftwards, I joined the Labour Party at a time when ‘In Place Of Strife’ is causing just that throughout the Labour movement.”
