Cartoon: 1984 and all that

The annual ritual of  undisclosed conversations from thirty years ago is underway. To someone of my generation, this recalls the miner’s strike and notions of the so-called ‘enemy within’. The link to a report by Alan Travis, Home Editor at the Guardian. The coverage at the FT also makes a generous offer to any other with specific interest in the period. Paul Mason and crew deliver an audio-visual report here on Channel 4 News.

The cartoon draws a parallel with our own contemporary militant tendency.
