Richard Crossman Diaries

Monday, 3 July 1967

"Walking back to Vincent Square with Tam Dalyell on a lovely clear morning we discussed the effect on the Party of getting the "Buggers' Bill" through. It may well be twenty years ahead of public opinion; certainly it's upset traditional members in the north who jeer their Members and send them bullying letters. It might be the right thing to do, but has gone down very badly that the Labour Party should be associated with such a bill. "Why are you worried about the buggers at Westminster when you should be worried about unemployment at home? they ask."

As I wrote the other day, Plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose.
