Ken Russell’s oldest son ALEX was an occasional attender of London Class War meetings in the 1980s. He was a council communist with situationist deviations and a big lad. He also had an implacable hatred of lefties. He came with us to wapping one night during the strike and threw the WRP stall complete with literature over a high wall. That’s the last I saw of him…..offering three WRP ers out for a fight….and they were quite tasty but thought better of taking on the windmilling council communist before them. Good decision.
Ken once tried to buy one of the fantabulous Crystal Palace dinosaurs to stick in his garden in Church Road but luckily was refused so if you aint seen these wonders of Sarf London take a look – kids will love ’em.
