Went to a fascinating talk at Housmans where Terry Liddle spoke about Dan Chatterton as well as revealing an erudite knowledge of all socialist personalities in general.. We talked about the fact that John Quail’s part history of the English anarchists ‘The slow burning fuse’ is long out of print and might it get republished? Then we asked what has happened to John Quail’s long promised history of the Solidarity group which I for one would dearly love to read. Seeing as Terry was so knowledeable I chanced my arm on a long held query ‘ Do you know anything about Ernie Stanton of the South London Solidarity group’ I asked.’Oh yes’ chortled Terry ‘he burned down the offices of the company building the Thamesmead estate’ I should quickly add that I do know that Ernie is dead so I’m not landing him in the shit here. I knew Ernie was a onstruction worker ‘cos he wrote some great stuff about working on various sites especially Kingsnorth power station. Terry said that Ernie had been sacked from the Thamesmead site and gone back and burned down the employers huts on site.That would certainly seem to fit Ernie’s bolshy temperament as expressed in his writing. Does anyone out there have any memories of Ernie Stanton or any copies of the South London Solidarity mag which he produced and which I could take a look at?
