    Hi boys, where are the girls? Love to get involved. I know that there are piles of BF stuff in the Working Class Movement Library here in Manchester I left it there. Someone else did as well. Also Dave the printer at Rochdale Alternative Press may have kept copies of the BF newspaper. Longsight Library may have kept the socialist unity stuff, remember Jeff West unemployed welder.PS Iremember tearing up Spooners labour party card aqnd using it for roach material.
