The Election of 1954

Since the previous election in 1949 British government had been controlled by both Right and Left under three separate Prime Ministers. With the country’s two largest parties under new leadership, a new era in British politics appeared to be dawning.

Labour Party


The Labour Party has an electoral pact with the Communist Party of Great Britain

Political Position: Left

Ideology: Democratic Socialism

Description:

After the highs of the latter 1940s, the early 1950s marked a dark period for the Labour Party. Coming close to collapse in 1950 with long term leader Clement Attlee being forced to resign in the face of the chaos within the party, for several months elements of the party’s moderate right wing seriously considered separating from the party. Yet, as time passed, and the party’s new radically left wing leadership showed a wiliness to cooperate with all factions, Labour recovered and by 1954 appeared ready to once again challenge for control of parliament.

Party Leader: Aneurin Bevan

In the decade after the War Nye Bevan’s star rose at an incredible pace. As Minister for Health in during the Popular Front he organised the creation of the National Health Service, from the end of the decade he became the leading force on the Left of the Labour Party – with his followers coming to dominate the parliamentary party and membership alike after the 1949 election. The Korean Crisis the following year, which nearly tore Labour apart, saw Bevan and his supporters emerge triumphantly in control of the party leadership. In the aftermath of his victory Bevan was able to make steps towards healing the wounds that divided the party – including prominent moderates in his Shadow Cabinet – yet his position was far from totally secure by 1954, especially after the controversial decision to agree to an electoral pact with the Communists.

Foreign Policy:

In the nine years since the end of the War the world has once again become a turbulent and dangerous place. Britain cannot allow itself to be dragged into another Great conflict; she must refuse to be the playthings of Superpowers and must end the belligerent policies of the present government. Let Britain become a bastion of peace, arbitration and justice around the world.

The Labour Party proposes that the United Kingdom calls for the removal of all foreign military units from its sovereign territory and removes itself from the American led NATO alliance. We have no desire to be tied to the United States of America, but neither can we withdraw our support for the free peoples of Western Europe. Britain must be a mediator in the conflicts of the world – but shall not shirk her responsibility to once again defend democracy from destruction should it again come under threat.

The Conservatives and their National Liberal lackeys have slashed public spending, slashed investment in improving the economic prospect of this country and the lives of her citizens in favour of rearmament and massive military spending. The Labour Party demands that this imbalance be redressed and the rearmament programme be abandoned.

The dark cloud of thermonuclear war that has drawn across the world in recent years represents the greatest risk humanity has ever faced. Today the outbreak of another World War would risk not only the destruction of states, of regimes and of lives but the obliteration of human civilisation. Britain shall have no part in it! The Labour Party calls for the disassembly of Britain’s nuclear programme and a firm commitment from this country against further proliferation of these weapons.

Imperial Policy:

The Labour Party advocates the resumption of decolonisation as we gradually grant the peoples of the British Empire their freedom as soon as independence is favoured by the majority of the local population and is feasible.

Economic Policy:

We must have the political will to expand democracy and equality in this country – to take strides towards a better future. The Labour Party advocates the unity of the entire workers’ movement, including the Communists, as we strive towards those ends.

We call for larger parts of industry to be placed under collective ownership – this gradual but unwavering process shall allow us to establish socialism and the rule of the working class in this country without the need for the travails of violent revolution and without the anti-democratic measures employed by the Soviets and their allies the world over.

The British government must become more involved in planning for the future of the British economy. We call for major economic investments that will improve the living conditions of British citizens, the service available to them and the economic prospects of the country as a whole.

The future awaits!

Conservative Party


The Conservative Party has an electoral pact with the National Liberal Party

Political Position: Centre-Right

Ideology: Conservatism

Description:

The Conservative Party was returned to power in 1950 after five years of Labour led government despite having ‘lost’ the previous two elections. Having rebuilt its political influence on the foundations of a strong alliance of the Right with the National Liberal Party many in both parties were hopeful that the two parties would soon merge into a single organisation capable of standing against a resurgent and concerningly radicalised Labour Party. However, in the years after their return to power in 1950 the Conservatives had come to accept the mixed economy, showing a willingness to accept the reforms of the post-war Labour led governments – a stance at odds with many National Liberals. At this crucial moment in British political history ‘the natural party of government’ risked seeing the cherished unity of the Right fall away.

Party Leader: Anthony Eden

Anthony Eden perhaps should have been leader of the Conservative Party as early as 1945 – after the catastrophic performance of the Tories in the first post-war election Churchill refused to abandon the leadership but none the less entered into semi-retirement leaving Eden to handle the day to day tasks of leading the party. When Churchill passed away a short time after returning the Conservatives to government Eden moved smoothly into the party leadership and the office of Prime Minister. As party leader he steered the Tories towards conciliatory policies domestically – appealing as the voice of reason and moderation in comparison with Bevan – whilst vigorously defending the Empire abroad. Facing his first election as a party leader, Eden cautiously waited to see if his government was to be returned for another term in office.

Foreign Policy:

Every year the division of the world becomes clearer and more solid. On one side stand the free peoples of the West, on the other the enslaved masses of the East. As Communism strides ever further forward Britain must reassert itself as the international force the Left no longer believes it is. Alongside our American allies we shall once again take upon ourselves the role of the arsenal of democracy against tyranny!

Four years ago we stood with our allies in Korea and there, for the first time in history, the borders of the Soviet Empire were pushed back. Korea was a warning to Moscow that must be headed – the free peoples of the West shall stand alongside any nation resisting Communist aggression, and they shall be victorious!

In line with the dangerous international situation the Conservative Party promises to remain firm in its current commitments to the expansion and modernisation of the armed services.

The Conservative Party calls for close integration with the United States and Commonwealth – hand in hand, side by side, the English peoples of the world shall stand as guardians of democracy and freedom the world over.

Imperial Policy:

Today, the Soviets have shifted their energies towards supporting pigmy-Hitlers in the Middle East as they look to destabilise the region, incite violence against British persons and properties and bring new lands into their power. In Egypt an anti-British junta now rules from Cairo whereas once there was a government that respected justice and the rule of law. We must take measures to support resistance to those nefarious forces seeking to subvert the region – just as we stood against North Korea. In Egypt we shall show that we are unafraid to protect British citizens and interests, and shall not be intimidated.

In the other parts of the Empire we cannot forget the catastrophic results of chaotic Labourite decolonisation that left once tranquil regions at war and under Soviet influence. Britain, her Empire and her Commonwealth stand as one, bastions of peace and freedom in an increasingly dangerous world. Decolonisation is a task for the future – when it can be assured that the process will be peaceful and that these nations might safely enjoy the fruits of democracy passed down to them.

Domestic Policy:

Only under a government of the Conservative Party and the Alliance can Britain be assured of its safety from socialism, only under such a government can social discord be made a thing of the past and the great progress being made in all fields of the economy and society continue. Every year Britons live better than the year before, each day we take another step forward. Let us not abandon this progress – let us not allow socialism to triumph!

The Conservative Party supports an economy in which the private and public sector, workers and employers, government and the people are not in conflict with one another but work for each other’s benefits. Our party supports cooperation between all sectors of the economy in support of strong economic growth, improved living conditions and a fair society built upon hard work and ingenuity.

For a stable and prosperous society.

National Liberal Party (Unionist)
- Leadership Faction


The National Liberal Party has an electoral pact with the Conservative Party

Political Position: Right

Ideology: Conservative Liberalism, Market Liberalism

Description:

The budget of 1951 and subsequent Steel Workers’ Strike marked a turning point for many within the National Liberal and Conservative parties alike. The strength of the labour movement, and socialism in Britain, was made clear for all to see and the desperate need for a unified Right that might also appeal to the middle ground in British politics as the only means of countering it. For the ‘unionist’ faction of the National Liberal Party, the lessons of 1951 did not mean the that party’s free market ideology had to abandoned – but only that the party had to commit itself to unity with the broad right in opposition to Labour’s socialist agenda. Only a united Right was seen as strong enough to resist.

Party Leader: Ernest Brown

Faction Leader: Ernest Brown

Under Brown’s leadership the National Liberal Party had weathered the storms of near destruction during the early 1940s before emerging as one of the strongest forces in British politics and from 1950 a party of government. The Deputy Prime Minister was a strong supporter of the unification of the Conservative and National Liberal parties into a force capable of defeating Labour – seeing National Liberals’ future as that of advocates for Market Liberalism within broad party as opposed to the evangelist sect focussed upon a single programme supported by the opposition within the party.

Foreign Policy:

Today, more than ever, the free world is at risk of Soviet aggression. Every year since the War ended Communism has attempted to advance its cause further – to annex more lands, enslave more people and weaken those who would resist them. On the battlefields of Korea, shoulder to shoulder with our American and Asian allies, British forces participated in the greatest victory of the free world since 1945.

The National Liberal Party demands that Britain accept its responsibility as an integral part of the NATO alliance and does not embark on individual adventurism liable to weaken the unity of the Western block in the face continuous Soviet aggression.

Imperial Policy:

It seems clear that the age of Imperialism is starting to draw to a close. However, the process of decolonisation must not and cannot be a chaotic one – the consequences of which are bloodshed and both political and economic strife for the newly independent countries and Britain alike. Instead, the French model of decolonisation – in which significant influence is retained by the former colonial power over the newly formed nations allowing for these countries to remain under a tutelage that is beneficial to both countries – should be pursued throughout the Empire.

Domestic Policy:

National Liberals shall always remain firmly committed to the rolling back of the powers of the state over the citizen and the economy. It shall never relent in its advocacy of a free and flourishing market – unrestrained by the oppressive hand of state control and bureaucratic planners. Yet Britain today is faced with a more fundamental threat – a threat to its very existence from Labourite-Communist abomination that threatens to seize power in this country and swallow up liberty forever. Just as unity is required in the face of the Communist threat internationally, so too is unity required to defeat Socialism in this country.

We therefore advocate the unification of the National Liberal and Conservative parties into a single organisation capable of defeating the anarchistic Left. Within this organisation National Liberals shall continue to struggle against the nationalisation of industry and favour privatisation where possible, shall continue to call for the elimination of all fetters on market freedom, shall fight for controls on domestic Communism and anti-democratic trade union practises and shall endlessly strive to preserve liberty in this country. Should our task fail then none of these aims shall ever be possible – instead we shall be doomed to perpetual slavery under the Soviet inspired planners and bureaucratic elites of the Labour Party.

Unity in Defence of Liberty!

National Liberal Party (Separatist)
- Opposition Faction


The National Liberal Party has an electoral pact with the Conservative Party

Political Position: Hard Right

Ideology: Conservative Liberalism, Extreme Market Liberalism

Description:

The National Liberal Party’s oppositional block emerged in the period after the 1951 budget and the Steel Workers’ Strike. As it became increasingly clear than neither the Conservative Party nor the National Liberal Party was willing to take serious action against the mixed economy forged by the Labour led ministries of 1945-1950, a group of National Liberals began to form a rebellious clique. Almost a one man band focussed around the enigmatic figure of Peter Thorneycroft the ‘separatists’ theorised that political power wasn’t worth a damn if it was not wielded to effective ends. If the consensus on the Right favoured a mixed economy then, for better or for worse, it had to be struggled against.

Party Leader: Ernest Brown

Faction Leader: Peter Thorneycroft

Serving as a Conservative MP from 1938-1945, Thorneycroft was shunted out of parliament as the Left stormed to power in the first post-war election and came to deeply question his own political views. Joining the resurgent National Liberal Party he came under the influence of then LSE professor Friedrich Hayek – becoming an unrepentant individualist and classical liberal in an increasingly collectivist age. Thorneycroft made a name for himself in the early 1950s by openly opposing the Conservative-National Liberal Alliance government as well as his own party’s leadership on a number of issues as well as his condemnation of any ‘capitulation’ to the anti-capitalist ideas of the Left.

Foreign Policy:

The United Kingdom must stand firmly alongside its greatest ally – the United States of America – against the aggressive advance of Communist totalitarianism. The interests of our own nation, of the free world and of the United States are identical as we all fight together to end the advance of Soviet Communism – and as was accomplished in Korea, push back its frontiers. We therefore advocate a firm and unswerving commitment to the NATO alliance and total support for our allies.

Imperial Policy:

The maintenance of an Empire than enforces itself upon peoples demanding their independence is a costly and morally bankrupt practise. We propose than the United Kingdom move to grant independence to any colony where the population overwhelmingly desires it, where the country is safe from takeover by armed groups, where it is safe from civil war, where democracy is ready to flourish and where British citizens, their properties and their nation’s interests can be guaranteed.

Domestic Policy:

The planners of Labour, their Communist allies, the so called ‘Liberals’ and even the parties of the Alliance have all abandoned the principles of liberty and attached themselves to socialistic statism. The National Liberal Party must stand defiant – the true guardians of liberty – in their rejection of statism in all of its guises. We therefore advocate the termination of the ‘Alliance’ between our party and the Conservatives and a return to our immovable advocacy of a free and unrestricted market – not burdened by nationalised industries, state interventionism and the tenants of the planned economy.

Just as the overarching power of the state must be fought against, we must mobilise ourselves against the most dangerous enemies of liberty. The Communist Party, a permanent fifth column subservient to Britain’s greatest enemies’ must be banned, whilst the trade unions, who in 1951 showed their ability and willingness to subvert democracy and attempt to destroy the elected government, must see their power reigned in significantly.

The National Liberal Party must stand alone as the only force in this country committed to fighting for a programme that preserves and expands liberty in this country.

No compromise! Liberty for all!

Liberal Party


Political Position: Centre

Ideology: Social Liberalism

Description:

Despite lacking a mass base on the scale of the Labour Party or the Alliance, the Liberals succeeded in establishing for themselves a uniquely powerful position in British politics. Involved in every British government since 1940, as a coalition partner from 1940-1950 and through their toleration of the Alliance’s minority government from 1950-1954. Positioned in the Centre of the British political spectrum, the failure of any party to secure an absolute majority meant that the Liberals had developed into the ‘kingmaker’ of British politics – capable of bestowing upon larger parties the ability to govern even if they themselves were not strong enough to lead government in their own right. None the less, the radicalisation of the Labour Party after 1950 had created a keen sense of optimism within the party that by attracting moderate Labour supporters it might take the step up towards becoming a national leader once more.

Party Leader: Archibald Sinclair

Approaching his dotage, by the 1954 election Sinclair had led the Liberal Party for an incredible 19 years – overseeing its rise from near oblivion in the mid-1930s to the parliamentary lynchpin of post-war politics with a rising membership and vote. Deeply revered within the party, 1954 almost certainly marks Sinclair’s last election as Liberal leader.

Foreign Policy:

Today democracy remains under threat from the expanding influence of Soviet Communism – whose totalitarianism continues to spread round the world. The Liberal Party demands that Britain stands firmly against this threat by strengthening the international rule of law – the United Nations is today discredited after the events in Korea in 1950 and its reputation must be restored. Let Britain be at the centre of this process as we continue to cooperate closely with our allies in the free world.

Britain is uniquely positioned within the free world as the point of linkage between its three main components – the United States, the British Commonwealth and Western Europe. The strengthening of ties with one part is certainly not mutually exclusive to the strengthening of ties with other parts of the free world – but only makes Britain a more attractive partner! Let us integrate with Europe, inviting the soon to be independent West German state into the European community, let us remain close to our Commonwealth and let us never waver from our link to the guardian of freedom – the United States of America.

Imperial Policy:

The Liberal Party demands that Britain remain responsive to any and all calls for self-government from her colonies. However we must not allow our withdrawal to be carried out in a chaotic fashion that risks leaving behind a legacy of violence. In future Britain shall support a more phased withdrawal and maintain close links with her former colonial subjects – offering military support for arbitration and economic support for development.

Domestic Policy:

True liberty is impossible in a society without social justice. Freedom from poverty, ignorance and squalor is just as vital to the liberty of the British people as the freedom of the individual to do as he wishes. The Liberal Party, therefore, commits itself to defending the grand reforms of the post-war government – even the nationalised industries. However, nationalisation for nationalisation’s sake remains a self-defeating objective – this ideologically driven desire to see industries better left in the hands of the private sector brought under public ownership shall trample upon the prosperity of our nation and put the entire agenda of social progress in this country at risk.

The Liberal Party is willing to act as a partner to any responsible government committed to defending the twin aims of the Liberal Party – social justice and individual freedom.

The Liberal Party unswervingly supports the cause of constitutional reform. Although amongst the freest and most democratic in the world – the British constitution retains numerous flaws that can and must be reformed! The Liberal Party calls for the abandonment of the anti-democratic and polarising ‘Westminster System’ and the adoption of Proportional Representation as many European nations have. PR is more conducive to compromise and stability, and a far more democratic system. The Liberal Party also strongly supports the formation of devolved parliaments in Scotland and Wales with full powers to deal with issues that affect these countries exclusively whilst the Westminster government continues to deal with national issues.

Communist Party of Great Britain

The Communist Party of Great Britain has an electoral pact with the Labour Party

Political Position: Far Left

Ideology: Communism, Stalinism, Marxism-Leninism

Description:

In 1945 the Communist Party won almost 100 seats and around 18% of the popular vote as they stormed into government as a part of the Popular Front. Yet, their fortunes would quickly begin to decline as the emergence of the Cold War, and crucially the conduct of Communist Parties in Eastern Europe, saw them expelled from government in 1948 and almost wiped out of Parliament the following year. Even after the Bevanites, a group traditionally favourable to working class unity including Communists, assumed the Labour Party leadership the CPGB remained mostly isolated as international tensions and the fragility of Labour itself kept as a pariah. Yet, in the first months of 1954 the CPGB was offered a fig leaf – an electoral pact with the Labour Party and an opportunity to restore itself to the national stage.

Party Leader: Harry Pollitt

In 1949 Pollitt came dangerously close to losing his seat in the House of Commons. The late 1940s and early 1950s were a dark time for the Communist Party amidst one of the tensest periods of the Cold War Pollitt’s party had remained unashamedly pro-Soviet and been politically isolated for it. However, domestically Pollitt followed a very moderate course aimed at forging unity with the Labour Left at all costs. Indeed on some issues the Labour Party was more radical than Pollitt’s Communists! Having dominated British Communism since the end of the 1920s, Britain’s arch Stalinists appears as immovable from his position at the head of the party as his hero had scarcely one year before.

Foreign Policy:

It is the role of the Communist Party to refute the lies spoken about the Socialist World, to defend the land of Socialism and all peoples demanding peace and to act as a counter to all anti-Soviet and anti-Working Class propaganda in this country and across the world.

The Communist Party demands the immediate withdrawal of foreign military forces from British territory and of British forces from the illegitimate Hitlerian West German state. Moreover, the Party calls for Britain to withdraw from the NATO alliance immediately and utterly reject the efforts of the United States of America to turn out nation into Washington’s lapdog. Instead, Britain must proclaim its neutrality and seek close and fraternal relations with the Soviet Union and the other nations of the Socialist Camp. However, this does not mean that relations with non-Socialist nations, especially European states, must suffer – instead it must be made clear that Britain shall be a neutral power standing between East and West and against War.

Down with American imperialist aggression! Let peace reign across the world!

Imperial Policy:

The Communist Party calls for the withdrawal of Britain from its colonial Empire as swiftly as possible with progressive national-democratic forces being supported so that the newly created nations might quickly begin their own developments towards a more prosperous future. Colonialist imperialism has no place in the modern world and Britain must refuse to be a part of it any longer.

Domestic Policy:

The Communist Party hopes to see the closest possible unity of the British labour movement, advocating the unity of the Communist Party and Labour in all actions against our common foe – the bourgeoisie.

The CPGB demands a new working class government committed to the spread of public ownership through the economy, the improvement of working conditions and the advancement of the productive forces in this country. Ultimately, Britain should strive to forge a planned economy, on the Soviet model, taking inspiration from the awe inspiring economic achievements of our brothers to the East.

Let us build a new future for Britain, a socialist future.

National Liberals (Separatist)

The Socialists want to go out of NATO? That is a recipe for disaster. Maybe it could work if they hadn't degraded us from a super power to a second grade power. But still we can under true Liberalism experience liberty and freedom and be a beacon of light and hope and stand against the wicked socialist threat to the east.

And the communist parry think West Germany are hitlertarian? Oh because the DDR are peace loving! There they imprisoned and executed all their foes! And now they still abduct, imprison and torture "anti-revolutinaries". Oh and one only drew a mustache on a poster and was deemed that. Such freedom loving! Much working class hero! WOW.

A vote for Labour Party or Communist Party is a vote for dictatorship like the DDR or USSR or Nazi-Germany. That is poverty, mss abductions and executions of the working class and political adversaries.

And I laugh at their joke of saying USA are imperialists while they seek closer bonds with the USSR who unlawfully grabbed all of Eastern and Central Europe and now China and pressured North Korea to take South Korea. They are the true imperalists, they are the true danger to the working class.

Liberals. I urge moderate socialists to join the Liberal Party, Bevan went too far and his alliance with the Stalinists threatens Britain as we love it.


There are no more factions within the Labour Party?

The factions won't appear in every election. In the last election the Radicals showed themselves to be significantly stronger - but there are still plenty of moderates within Labour.

Comrades: Vote Tory This Time!

A passionate appeal to all patriotic Democratic Socialists and sensible Labour voters.

Comrades,

As many of you will surely be aware, the Grand Old Man of Labour politics, our honourable leader, Mr. Attlee, is no longer with us. No, he is not quite dead in the Churchillian sense, thank God, but in a political one - and it is none other than Mr. Bevan who hath killed him. Through a combination of great personal courage and his passionate zeal to build a better Jerusalem "in England's green and pleasant land," Mr. Attlee, like a latter-day Moses, led the Labour movement through from the Dickensian poverty and strife of the thirties that was Baldwin's latter-day Egypt, through to the promised land of today. Social welfare, higher pensions, the Health Service and an independent British nuclear deterrent - these are just but a few of his great personal achievements.

The name of Attlee is synonymous with that of Democratic Socialism and fairness in this country, and Attlee was proud of his country. As a younger man, Attlee fought in the Great War for his country, and as an older one he continued to fight for his country on the home front in Churchill's war cabinet, with all the unceasing mental fight which characterised his earlier battles with poverty and want as a social worker in the poorer districts of London between the wars. Attlee was a foe to the forces of appeasement and of tyranny - fascist and communist alike - wherever they might dwell, and we would do well, to remember that spirit in light of present circumstances internationally and within the Labour movement itself.

Bevan's assassination of Mr. Attlee at the height of the Korean crisis is one of the most dastardly and unpatriotic acts I have ever seen in all my (admittedly few) years in politics. As a patriot and man of principle, Mr. Attlee rightly chose to put his country before himself in inviting Mr. Churchill into form a second war government when Attlee himself, thanks in strong part to the Bevanites, fifth-columnists, fellow travellers and other parasites embedded within this great movement of ours, could not. Bevan has since sought to remodel our movement in his own image, with all the insane power-hunger of a demagogue, and his new manifesto flies in the very face of the patriotic Democratic Socialist values which Attlee so epitomised and which led many of us, myself included, into joining the Labour movement in the first place. Bevan has announced that if he is elected, he will abandon the defence alliance with the Americans: need I remind him that it was the Americans who helped us to win not only one, but two world wars, against the continental forces of tyranny and fascism. He also demands an end to British rearmament: need I remind him of what happened when the likes of Baldwin and MacDonald pursued such foolishly pacifist in the face of Hitlerian oppression in the thirties. Those who fail to heed the mistakes of the past are condemned to relive them. Worst of all, Bevan seeks to abandon our independent nuclear deterrent, leading our island all but defenceless in the event of aggressive Soviet expansion - a move surely influenced by his electoral alliance with Muscovite Stalinists in the Communist Party. Such policies are simply not credible in today's world - worse, they are unpatriotic and defeatist - an insult to the tradition of our Labour movement.

I therefore call upon all Democratic Socialists and Labour voters in the name of patriotism and democracy to vote for their local Conservative candidate at this coming election. Bevan's attempts to turn our island into a Bolshevik offshore aircraft carrier cannot be allowed to succeed, and under the foreign affairs expertise of Mr. Eden they most certainly will be thwarted. Like Mr. Attlee, Mr. Eden is committed to opposing fascists and bullies of both political colours wherever they may dwell: be it Egypt or Ebbw Vale. Unlike the medieval Mr. Churchill and his Smithian barbarism, Mr. Attlee's economic program is tailored sensibly to post-war needs, spurning both radical nationalisation nor radical denationalisation in favour of a balance of both public and private ownership, supporting both but favouring neither. Mr. Eden, a lifelong enemy of appeasement, will see to it that the mistakes of the past are not repeated, and that our historic ties to the Commonwealth, Free Europe and our American allies - the "Three Circles" as he terms it - will be strengthened rather than weakened as Bevan wishes them to be.

Bevan and his Bolsheviks need to be given a good thrashing, and only by voting Tory at this election can you restore some sense and purpose into the Labour movement we all know and love.

Sincerely,

The Rt. Hon. Mr. Tanzhang, MP for Plymouth Devonport
