Standing for Something: Scenes from a Lefty Life
Mark Seddon, with cartooons by Martin Rowson
Mark Seddon joined the Labour Party aged 15. He was editor of Tribune for thirteen years, and an elected member of the LP ruling National Executive for eight years, becoming the focal point for grass roots resistance to Tony Blair, and the war in Iraq. Far from another memoir by a Labour insider, detailing adnauseam, the tiffs and tantrums of Messrs Blair, Brown and Mandelson, Standing for Something is a deeply personal account of how the authorís youthful attachment to principle survived well into adulthood and how an abiding naivetť about the real nature of power and the corruption of power blinded him to the baser motives of many of those who had grabbed it.
