About the Book:

IN the 1970s Colin Barnett was the left-wing Divisional Officer for NUPE in the north west. He became embroiled in major strikes and battles with successive governments that brought public services to a grinding halt. Indeed, Barbara Castle held him personally responsible for defeat of the Labour Government in 1979. Limping and Waddling to the Revolution traces his life and career and examines his role in expanding the influence of NUPE.

About the Author:

Ray Marriott was born in 1946 in Nottinghamshire. He read Modern History at Keble College, Oxford and, after teaching at Leeds Grammar School, entered local government as an education officer. He worked for North Yorkshire, Humberside, Cumbria and Lancashire County Councils and now lives in retirement in the Yorkshire Dales. He is married to Glenys and has three children and two grandchildren. This is his first book.
