Does Max Mosley matter? Does he matter more than Toby Young? Does something that Max Mosley did in 1961 matter? Does it matter more than what Toby Young and his allies, up to and including several Cabinet Ministers, were doing into this year?
Still, the Union Movement is a reminder that the Far Right never went away as a public and potent force in Britain, not even in the years just after the War. The Ulster Institute for Social Research, the Mankind Quarterly, the London Conference on Intelligence, and Toby Young are not some kind of aberration.
But one does have to wonder which other erstwhile election agent for the Union Movement, however long ago, would be admitted to Labour Party membership. Money talks. Far better to let it be the money of the union movement in the ordinary sense of the term.
