Eight mentions!  I'm famous!

I was expecting to be mentioned at least once, since Allen Myers had contacted me to get some info about a minority tendency within the DSP that I was part of in 1978.  But 8 mentions is a surprise.  I will have to get the book.

Hi Chris,

As per the index – bingo!  You have eight mentions, however you could – we all could – have considerably more as the Index hasn’t been very well researched.  I found another reference to myself that is not indexed (admittedly it was a reference to my surname only but it shouldn’t take too much to work out that perhaps “Dave Fagan” and “Fagan” are the same person).   I can only imagine that many more are there just waiting for us to turn the page.

Hi Gary,

I have just noticed that sneaky ole Gwynnyth gets more than one mention in
the index:  several as G. Farr and then as Evans.  Strangely even though I
am indexed you are not, despite our appearance in the same paragraph -- go
figure!

Hi David

That is a blast from the past. The fusion! It was of course a cynical
takeover but that is so long ago now.

Am hoping for great things from the UK when the Tory government finally
falls.

As ever

Gary
