Never a Yes Man: The Life and Politics of an Adopted Liverpudlian

Front Cover
Verso, 1991 - 251 pages
Eric Heffer was probably one of the most influential figures on the left of the British Labour Party. He was Member of Parliament for Walton Liverpool and in 1991 he received the Freedom of the City of Liverpool. His autobiography provides an insider's view of the politics and personalities of nearly three decades of Labour politics. A born rebel, Heffer was kicked out of the Communist party for descent, sacked from Harold Wilson's government and was a thorn in the side of Kinnock's leadership. His book contains an attack on the rightward drift of the Labour Party's present leadership, which remains crucial to the debate surrounding the future direction of the Labour Party.
