Liverpool city council's struggle in 1983-87 for more funding from the Thatcher government - attacked again!

Tony Mulhearn, Liverpool Socialist Party and Liverpool '47'
Once again it appears it's been open season on the Liverpool 47. The well-heeled from the bubble of the Westminster village, Messrs Balls, Milband, and of course multi-millionaire, ex-socialist 'firebrand' Lord Neil Kinnock took the opportunity again -while the Labour Party conference was in Liverpool - to besmirch the name of 47 brave socialist councillors who governed Liverpool from 1983 to 1987, most of whom, unlike these sleek purveyors of distortion, have spent most of their lives active in the Liverpool labour movement.
