As for their possible parting, he stated that ‘whatever lot may be in store for us, never can you expect me to abandon my respect and affection for you’. 297 Seemingly then, at the end of June 1953, both men knew that their relationship was

Women and the promise of peace in the ‘new’ Northern Ireland

Care – that exert considerable influence in the debate. While religious conservatism unquestionably informs the standpoints of some of those opposed to women’s reproductive rights, linkages between women’s reproductive capacities and the sectarian demographics serve to further embed virulent opposition to abortion on any grounds.

was Chairman of the London district council of the union. Their first major project was an important political tract on union activity, Comradeship for Clerks, which they coauthored in 1913.68 In 1910 George Lansbury had been elected as one of the three Labour councillors who formed the Labour bench on the London County Council (LCC). During this time, the LCC began to increasingly employ women clerks to replace boy labourers, as a new and cheaper form of labour in the clerical divisions.

Zionist labour movement and the Labour Party. The two labour organisations’ brand of social democracy had much in common and there developed between them, through frequent contact, a sense of comradeship. In 1946, following the British army’s arrest of 2,000 Jerusalem-based officials of various Zionist organisations, including the executive of the Jewish Agency, Michael Foot pleaded: ‘the people who are accused by the Government of instituting violence against law and order are men we know well, men who have come to our Socialist conferences, and who are colleagues of

Although sport cannot substitute a long common socialisation, under carefully planned circumstances it may create a sense of comradeship and belonging, thus reinforcing mutual confidence

. Although Wigham commenced his book by readily acknowledging many positive characteristics and qualities of Britain’s trade unions, he then proceeded to delineate the sundry ways in which they had not only become increasingly powerful in an era of full employment, but had displayed a growing tendency to exercise their enhanced power in a destructive and negative manner, with damaging repercussions for the British economy and wider British society. He lamented that what had once been virtues had become vices, such as: when comradeship becomes conspiracy for selfish gain

Stuart times; our comradeship in two world wars, and in our efforts to create conditions of lasting peace following those wars. But Wilson, as he noted later, had ‘prepared no speech, and had to speak, as they say, right on’. 31 In his impromptu address he used the expression ‘close relationship’ instead of the established formulation ‘special relationship’. 32 The
