Despite round the clock drinking, getting drunk in Blackpool is proving as elusive as ever, courtesy of the water board, even for BL 84 stalwarts who have to be alcoholics to even join. STEVE RICHARDSON (DHSS Last Orders - Stanley) is no exception. Sitting in the gutter last night, the drunken Northerner was whining about the dreadful state of his hotel. No soap, no bog roll and only one towel for himself and his 22 '84 comrades - the fact that he booked the hotel himself never crossed his mind. Back at the ranch PAUL FLEWERS, taking a breather from pestering people to buy his boring newspaper bumped into Sir ROY d'LEWIS going the other way. `Who's that old buffer on the badge - it looks like Duke Ellington' the diminutive Trot asked. `It's Nelson Mandela' the great man replied.

Another old has-been, FRANK PEMBERTON was propping up the bar at the CLAREMONT claiming to be the official NCPS observer for the unity motion. Such is the ageing playboy's charisma that his former section, DTI, wouldn't even let him past the door when he tried to crash their section conference. The RED run DE on the other hand, ruled that as they had so much to discuss they simply had no time to hear the President, MARION CHAMBERS, nor our beloved leader, JOHN ELLIS, even though both had been invited to attend in the first place. DE's drunken leader, a ruffian called LEEDHAM however forgot to tell them until they arrived and just left them to glower in the front row. However, the President has let it be known that LEEDHAM need not bother to attend conference at all this week as he has more chance of being struck by lightning than being called to speak as long as she's in the chair.

MARION was not amused either at the bailiff's conference after LCD stalwart MARK DRAYTON told her to `FUCK OFF' and had to be thrown out by ALBERT ASTBURY and the STEWARDS. Outside DRAYTON speedily sobered up and obtained re-admission but only after grovelling on his hands and knees in front of ELLIS and CHAMBERS. This year ELLIS was determined to get back into the good books of RALPH GROVES and DTI. For the past two years he had studiously ignored their deliberations, as he no longer needed their votes. But RALPH's badgering eventually got through to the bluff YORKSHIREMAN. Sad to say, by the time he got to the New Clifton Hotel, at 1.00, the conference was over, having been rushed through by the inebriate CARPENTER who wanted to take early advantage of the all day drinking on the beach.

Elsewhere DE liverbasher comrade BOBBY EVANS was so tired and emotional on Saturday that he managed to sit through the entire afternoon at DHSS conference without noticing the difference.



For the benefit of Agents and cadres who haven't read their pre-conference bulletins, the PFL has recently launched its campaign to form a merger with the International Brotherhood of Teamsters - a union of progressive views similar to those we have struggled to promote within this decadent organisation for 10 years. The great and noble leader of the illustrious union - one Mr JAMES HOFFA was a noted philanthropist amongst the New York Italian Community and generously donated his body to a freeway bridge construction in Los Angeles. This years forward battlegroup is named in his honour.



Hotfoot from a Gatwick planning authority meeting, DOUG MURDOCH rushed for his initiation into the Hope and Relief Lodge (9921 -Motto `Domicilium et Castra propter Mea est) sponsored by brother councillors and local property developers alike. It seems Doug's interest in the craft was inspired not only by love of humanity but also by the discovery that his new Ifield home is slap bang in the middle of the recently proposed second runway. His only hope of staving off disaster is to pool lobbying resources with those who built the houses believing the 1979 promise that the 2nd runway would never materialise. It seems that one of his sponsors may have come from Holbrooks, to whom Bro Murdoch has recently transferred the DE Section Print contract away from Centurion Press (Prop. Tony Bunce), under the impression that vast amounts of alcohol will regularly arrive gratis on his doorstep.

Changes are reported in Glasgow Lodge (207 - `Fortius Hiberna Erat') where Bro CAMPBELL has succeeded BIG TAM as junior warden. Bro MARTIN BOYLE has now resigned on his transfer to the Edinburgh Lodge (2407 - `Education is Sufficient')
Finally, aspirant first degree Novice Bro HANSON, looking for the opportunity to secure his full-time officer's job, is still plucking up courage to ask BERNIE WILLIAMS whether he can join Health and Social Virtue Lodge (910 - `Militantum ne meum carborundum ferat')

While the assorted TROTS and other REDS spent a predictable evening getting drunk, the real celebrations continued unabated at the New Clifton. Hotel where the Modr8s are confident of yet another stunning victory at the polls, despite the justified indifference shown by members with a 25% turnout. The Right wing cabal predicts a 24-2 victory, with 21 outright paid up NMG seats, 3 hangers on in the shape of EL `84 turncoats Messrs DUGGAN, KOWALSKI and HANSON, together with 2 members of the BL `84 rump. Who fills the latter posts remains to be seen, but ALDERSON dined with ELLIS in an Italian restaurant on Sunday night. Make of that what you will.

None of which has deterred MAREK SERWOTKA whose usually reliable source, his AUNTIE, works as a cleaner for Howdie Doody. The depressing Pole is claiming a 21-5 TROT sweep.
NUCPS reject FRANK (the Plank) PEMBERTON has not enjoyed such good fortune. The Farouk style aged playboy has been trying to recapture his long lost youth and, last night, on the strength of a promise, stuffed his face with Oysters in a desperate attempt to revive his flagging love life. Far from fortifying the over-forty, however, the pathetic PEMBERTON spent the rest of the night performing technicolour yawns down the great white telephone - much to the annoyance of fellow guests.

Meanwhile, down at the MAFF social, the usual bores were in the bar or slumped in chairs, few noticing heroic Caledonian Cllr CARDOWNIE inviting a lamp standard to “come ootside Jimmy - jist me n you pal” or words to that effect, under the impression he was talking to one of his mates.

A group of senior PFL officers were holding serious discussions on whether Sir ROY d'LEWIS had at last succeeded in becoming the most hated man at conference when a drunk DUGGAN rudely dismissed their suggestion out of hand. When asked who did hold this coveted honour, the South London bruiser just jabbed his thumb against his Simian chest and leered.

Talking of piss-heads, BARRY REAMSBOTTOM was amazed at being accosted by stewards at the MOD Ball, who on WRIGLEY's specific instructions, demanded that he pay the £2 admission fee. When the stewards admitted that they had no idea who the great man was, the enraged Hibernian stormed off muttering curses. BARRY'S habit has rendered him incapable of churning out the usual MODR8 daily drivel this year; which accounts for the marginal improvement in the quality of their bulletins as many old hands were quick to observe. Few, however, can believe that doddering DENIS WHITE could string a sentence together let alone a Newsletter. But the SOCIALIST WANKER hypothesis that DUGGOUT was the author is even less credible given his right/left dyslexia.

The big guns at NUCPS are also in town lobbying against the GMB merger. NUCPS President PARKER to be joined by LESLIE CHRISTIE today and the irrepressible FRANK PEMBERTON (if he survives the shellfish poisoning) are doing the rounds to persuade the full-timers of the benefits of joining forces with them rather than a real union like the teamsters. Parker was treated to dinner by comrades KIRK and ALDERSON; but despite Chris's disapproving presence, the drinks bill far outweighed the money spent on food.

The Southern Assembly elections were greeted with total indifference this year with PHIL ROGERS a yokel from Titchfield and his drinking chums getting a taste of power at last, despite the best efforts of BRIAN KLUKLUX. The token demagogue and smelly git had been busy trying to mobilise his follower in an unsuccessful attempt to communicate with Lord LAMBERTJARRET at the Albert Rd Spiritualist church. But far from being beyond the veil, the noble Lord is alive and kicking in the House of Lords stationery department.

In spite of the assiduous endeavours of SOCIALIST WANKER top cadre MARK DRAYTON (he of the grovelling apology to El Presidente in yesterday's communiqué) who is employed as a debt collector in LCD, our bailiffs remain a bastion of common sense and virtue. When not drooling over the vast amounts of overtime which will be theirs for the asking when the Poll Tax hits town next year, they speculate on the mental condition of their imposed leader and nightclub entertainer - JOHNNY SANDS (alias J Billouin). Clearly under severe emotional stress, Billouin has taken to describing his own branch as LCD Swindon, which does not exist, while his actual branch, LCD Avon has yet to catch sight of him, despite holding two AGMs this year. It seems that he also continues to fail to grasp the LCD grading structure after 5 years in the game. He insists on describing the heroic EDDIE HARDING as a superintendent when `supervising bailiff' has been his rank for years. His greatest lapse of judgment, however, which led to his present inability to claim facility time, was his decision to pose for the `Red Tape front page victory photograph following the MODR8 victory last year after 12 months on the sick. Like Lazarus from the grave, he rose immediately from his sick bed to report for work the Monday after the election results. LCD Management, being a) mostly CPSA members and thus entitled to receive Red Tape and b) not as green as they're cabbage looking, put 2 and 2 together and promptly limited the moonlighter to the 40 days TU time he can claim as NEC member.

Back in their seedy underworld the assorted REDS have been trying to justify their miserable existence in every bar in town. All the usual dross from the SOCIALIST WANKERS PARTY and MENDICANT are here, plus the perpetual PAT MANTLE and the MORNING STAR's ace reporter, ROY JONES. As always, his unread copy is written by ALDERSON who sacrifices five minutes valuable drinking time every day to compose the turgid prose; which is more than could be said for BROOKS and HUGHES, who forgot to organise any NEW WANKER sales and left their own hapless full time commissar to get on the leafleting on his own. JONES swears that he has taken the pledge. But he cannot explain why he is still unable to arise before 1 o'clock.

Southern Assembly delegates were shocked to hear that their guest speaker STEVE CARDOWNIE had been suddenly taken ill and was unable to attend their conference. They will be pleased to know that he eventually recovered from his `attack' in the GALLEON bar and was even able to make his own way home unassisted. This is probably Cllr CARDOWNIE's last conference now that he has been promoted together with his life long friend FINNEGAN. However, the prospect of Edinburgh's finest son devoting his life to efforts of the Scottish Office remain as remote as ever, for the crafty Caledonian has already ensured that he will take up the NUCPS chairmanship as soon as his elevation permits. His new NUCPS colleagues nevertheless maintained, that while they can easily swing it for him, finding another sinecure for FINNEGAN could not be contemplated. STEVE could not fault their brilliant logic.

Back at the New Clifton, ELLIS, MDE CHAMBERS & DUGGAN are holding court and plotting their next moves against DSS. The dour YORKSHIREMAN has now been convinced that the creation of a London based regional office could actually save money despite the need to appoint yet another full time official. But who could that man be? Why, JOHN, assures us, none other than MICHAEL DUGGAN himself.

While Conference slept, fears grew that FRANK PEMBERTON, 52, (IQ not age) is about to make a comeback. The aging LOTHARIO has received two box 5 markings and faces imminent downgrading and automatic severance of his NUCPS credentials. FRANCO's abysmal handling of the Guatemala desk in the DTI Overseas Trade division has at last been brought to the attention of the authorities. This has sent shock waves through the ranks of his former colleagues who had fiercely opposed the Merger with NUCPS on the grounds that it would mean being in the same union as PEMBERTON and OSMOND again.

Regular denizens at the GALLEON will have seen the Newcastle Provisional Government in session every day during opening hours. WILLIAMS, DROSS. COLLINS and BOYLE have grown used to dominating this enormous Branch. While no self-respecting Geordie can be trusted to carry out ELLIS' bidding, the gang of four regularly rely on local quislings led by KEVIN OLIVER and his C.D.M.T. goons. BOYLE, the Scottish Officer in exile, is ensconced with the other 3 in a villa at the nearby resort of Whitley Bay. The rent, at £15 per week has little impact on their £300 per week wages. Meanwhile, MCHUGH languishes in Block 10 and PURVES in blocks 15 & 16 awaiting their show trials.

The fight to Liberate Newcastle may take years, but the toppling of MARION CHAMBERS need not be so remote. MENDICANT strategists are arguing within the BORED LEFT camp for a simple no-strings declaration of support for LEEDHAM in next years elections. Not only would Marion have to fight for her life to retain the Presidency, but it would also force her to call in all her favours from DUGGAN who would either have to declare for her or end both his special relationship and glittering career once and for all.

Ace debt collector and BL bore MARK DRAYTON is wearing a customised T-Shirt with the slogan `FULL TIME OFFICERS, FUCK 'EM' immortalising his witty response to Mde Chambers over the weekend. He does, however, prudently wear it under his shirt, though he does occasionally reveal it when he is confident that none of ELLIS' spies are around.

DRAYTON is an extraordinary character who has transformed his office into a revolutionary command centre. His epic words `As the Marxists among you will know...' during an address to last year's section conference were received in stony silence by his brother bailiffs. 7 attended his AGM.

ROD BACON's days on DHSS Section Committee ended with a bang over the weekend when he fell with SERWOTKA and BATTLEMUCH in a MENDICANT inspired purge. Thus 17 years service ends and ET beckons.

Not so for LEEDHAM who, touting for future votes, roundly condemned PFLCPSA's appalling sexism at a BL'84 harpies assembly on Monday night. IAN's boycott call has, however, fallen on deaf ears and did not prevent the Yorkshireman from taking his usual reserved copy the very next morning.

The DSS Inner London branch TROT delegation consisting of NIGEL PRENDERGAST and JOHN McLAUGHLIN achieved instant shame yesterday. Neither of them was available to move motion 282 obviously believing that their branch motion on Equal Opportunities and provision of Crèche facilities would be of little value to their members if passed by conference. Hence it fell. No doubt they will have convincing explanations prepared in time to face their members next week.

The high spot of the evening warn , once again, the Claremont, with the Moderate Hunt Ball packed with the cream of the Labour movement. Upstairs, however, the OAPs' Tuesday club was holding its regular old time dancing session. The doltish GILHESPIE, stumbling in, was told by two quick-witted PFL agents that this was in fact the Moderate beano and got the fool to stand at the door cutting tickets for half an hour until the penny dropped.

DHSS Topman JOHN HICKEY has been demonstrating his prowess with a bottle all week - making the most of a week's holiday away from the wife. He left the DHSS beano on Monday at 2.30 am slightly the worse for wear and found his way to the New Clifton where he spent a happy hour or two with his Moderate chums in Choral Evensong. At some indeterminate point he crawled away in the direction of his holiday home at Florida Mansions. How he got there is anybody's guess. After struggling manfully to master the mysteries of a yale lock, HICKEY resorted to violence and rang every bell till some poor soul opened the door. This was not the end of his difficulties as he then proceeded to try find his room using the Cinderella principle that whichever door fitted his key must be the right one. Amongst those whose peaceful slumber was disturbed was RALPH GROVES whose Kent Constabulary training and consequent experience in predawn raids rendered him more than a match for the hapless HICKEY who was despatched in no uncertain terms. Young JOHN eventually made it to his own room by process of elimination and crashed out having successfully woken everyone in the entire street. He arrived at conference the next afternoon around 3.00 pm bright and cheery, blissfully oblivious to the previous nights escapade or the fact that he had slept through the DHSS lunchtime SEC for which he had been due to arrange the venue. Once the truth had dawned, he approached Sir WOY with his £5 PFL "subscription renewal" and a further fiver to keep his mouth shut. LEWIS is now £10 richer.

LIZ EDGE was determined to be one of the first to congratulate MARION and ELLIS on their handling of the RED RUFFIANS at Conference on Tuesday. Rushing past the Claremont reception, she grabbed a drink and began to make small talk with the old duffers at the bar. It took her two hours to realise that she was not talking to new delegates from MOD but that she had in fact crashed an MSF school social and that the real action was going on without her downstairs.

Our Sports Correspondent writes: No greens have been seen to be potted. Several Reds have been sunk during the week. The only Brown seen was on the inside of Ellis' pants. The pink is still the major ball & he still runs DHSS'. A number of Blues remain to be, notably Arthur Newell. As far as the yellow is concerned, it is a low priority colour sponsored by the balloon from Swindon but there is no point in potting it when the frame is won.

We have reviewed 5 vintages of varying appeal this week. Three are unsuitable for any but the most primitive palate though the other two more than compensate for the initial disappointment. Blackpools discerning hotels and restaurants have adequate cellars where all 5 may often be found.

Disaster vintages universally. Wines traditionally declared as vintages (e.g. Champagne, Port) were deficient in quality and quantity. Many French wines in particular suffered from wartime neglect which affected their character. The vintages can be summarised as unattractive. Any wires left suffer from volatile acidity and are now cracking up and fading. Those who purchased them while young chose badly and should have anticipated an early burial rather than laying down for future enjoyment. Any wines left should remain in the bin forever.

Judging by the Krug Champagne (£275 per magnum--Fortnum & Mason) this was a star vintage throughout France. The clarets were characterised by leanness in youth. These have now developed into wines with excellent balance between fat fruit and tannin. The Burgundies are well constituted, consistent and forthcoming. The best are still excellent. The ports were harvested late but nonetheless produced wines of a rare quality. All the wines show the benefit of maturity and long aging. Purchasers of this vintage showed good judgment and will want to know the wines are almost at their peak and can expect to stay there for another 15 years.

Undoubtedly the greatest post war vintage to date. One of the best four of the century along with 45, 47 and 49. The clarets in particular wil1 develop slowly but have the benefit of better vineyard and cellar management. With careful handling these youthful and attractive wines will blossom with age maturing in about 2 - 3 years time. Like `52 they will remain at their peak for some years. The Champagnes are bubbly but one sour note; the ports were not declared.

The year that recovery from wartime neglect began, the overall impression is of nice quality but lacking persistency - and blunt. High alcohol contents were a characteristic. 1943 was of course the first vintage the French adopted a form of centralised operation. Bottle shapes were standardised and picking commenced on collective lines with the casual new a d lahnur organised for the first time. Unfortunately it was also the first year that an early form of VAT was introduced and coupled with UK excise duties, the wines were prohibitively expensive to import. Good wines are generally hard to find but with spirits being taxed differently, some reasonable vintage Brandies were landed. Stalin's favourite vintage.

A mixed bunch of wines with initially good fruit but now exhibiting bite. The wines are decidedly heavy - particularly the whites. The vines in Bordeaux suffered from disease due to neglect and this has left its mark. Burgundy, on the other hand, shows the charming side - as long as the wines were cellared well. Often available second hand. The champagnes are rounded but of dubious character. The Port vintage was much better though they are starting a gentle decline.

Volatile acidity - soft, feeble, lacking balance, past it, vinegary
Bite - acid grip in mouth
Cracking up, rounded, fading - self explanatory
Heavy - over endowed with alcohol, clumsy, lacking finesse
Lean - sinewy, firm, a characteristic of middle aged clarets approaching their best
Fat - sweet, highly acid, high alcohol and glycerine

Dancing in the streets continued until dawn following confirmation of the widely leaked results (see Communique 2) of the NEC elections with the forces of Law and Order being returned with the expected huge majority. The Revolutionary Command Council, whose actions in ensuring a low turnout sealed the fate of the assorted REDS, has already held preliminary negotiations with ELLIS and CHAMBERS to discuss which of our demands shall be implemented first. STEVE ION, sole representative of the Left on the new NEC told the PFL “I like a challenge!”.

Riotous Assembly brain donor ALLAN WEBB is at it again. The plank was heard talking to a stunned GEORGE LOBO, late of this Parish, telling him how much he admired his work, that he considered George was in the vanguard of the fight against repression in Southern Africa and that George was remembered as a excellent conference speaker. When this blatant hypocrisy was questioned by young ROGERS, Webb justified his actions by claiming he was merely following the appeal to `patronise the AAM stall.'

The press room has been unusually empty this week. The GRAUNIAD hack got bored and left on Tuesday, leaving the field open to ace reporters STEVE DUNK and ROY JONES of MENDICANT and MORNING STAR respectively. The Scottish Gangster JIMMY BOYLE was wisely judged by the Mendicant Comintern not to be reliable enough to cover Blackpool this year and has been left to languish in the print room.

Few members have actually met the stunningly popular head of CPSA's Education and Organisation department, VAL STANSFIELD. This may be your last chance as the dynamic supremo - who has transformed the department from the shambles REAMSBOTTOM left behind - will shortly be leaving for the Antipodes and is not expected to return from Australia for at least 9 weeks. ELLIS' extraordinary decision to release her, in the middle of National Membership year is compounded by the expected departure of her foe, MARGARET GRANT, the Education HEO, who is Jumping ship following a career development interview'. SKIPPY STANSFIELDS last application for the Women's officer vacancy at the GMB was unsuccessful and Mde GRANT's departure is expected any day; leaving the field open for WRIGLEY'S transfer and ultimate rise to the lucrative Education chief post when SKIPPY says bye bye.

MIKE HUGHES little daughter FRUNELLA was seen crying at the amusement arcade after her daddy had refused to let her ride the fire engine, insisting that she ride the tank again.

The lovely SAMANTHA CHAMBERS, was one of the few moderates who didn't get elected on to the NEC. Her own branch, LCD Chilterns refused to nominate her this year and will continue to do so until she learns how to spell the branch name.



The low turnout of just over 35,000 for this vital Division V encounter has been acknowledged as being largely due to the Government's new membership scheme, but still aroused its usual passion with JOHNNY SANDS leading the prematch community singing.

Dynamo Coach, BRUNO ELLIS signed a lucrative new deal at a Taunton Motorway Restaurant minutes before the game and this heartened the DREADFUL following amassed on the FALCON terrace. MARIO CHAMBERS retained her large goalkeepers jersey, and KAYE, after showing promise in earlier outings, kept her place. The midfield and attack was made up of largely inexperienced players and question marks have been raised in fanzines as to their ability.

WANDERERS, with many of their Left sided players sidelined, were always at a disadvantage and in spite of sterling work by leading scorer JOCK OWSKI failed to get with the workmanlike midfield engine of HANSON and the ebullient DUGGAN. (Booked late in the first half for gesturing) ALDERSON did good work to forge openings on the left flank and BARROWCLOUGH provided further support down the left wing.

A pitch invasion by one stranger was not allowed to disrupt proceedings and indeed proved to be the ion required in what was largely a very anaemic affair. Indeed, it was the pre-match attempts to bar fans from the seated areas of the ground for which this dreary affair will be remembered.

Following the match, a move by the football supporters association to exert influence on the pay of the players was averted.CHRIS KIRK is in mild panic over the enforced absence of loyal Agent BRIAN LAISTER - injured in the line of duty on Monday and now taking well earned rest (ward 34 of Victoria Hospital Blackpool) - as she now has to write her own speeches.

The Popular Front has taken an average from three opinion polls which took place during the week; GUARDIAN (MORI), MILITANT (RSL), MORNING STAR (IND COOPE). The question asked was:- `Who is THE MOST HATED MAN IN CPSA?' The Results show a decided swing to the right:




Popular Front Agents last night captured photographs showing IAN LEEDHAM and `84 Women's leaderine KALI MOUNTFORD on their feet taking enthusiastic part in the general applause for SKINT VIDEO at the DNS social after 90 minutes of some of the most sexist and racist `humour' ever perpetrated at a CPSA Social. This after scenes earlier in the day at the distribution of yesterday's communiqué following PFL agents coded announcement to conference (through the usual point of order) that issue 3 was available. KALI strode up to the distribution point demanding to know “who wrote this drivel”. Whilst most agents sniggered at the attack and Colonel ISLAM bravely ran away to hide behind loyal bodyguard HARDING, Agent J, naively assuming that an intelligent debate might be possible, stepped forward to ask what had caused offence in the communiqué being thrust under his hooked nose. He was particularly bemused as, through lack of space, the communiqué contained not a single “quote” of the type which appears to be in danger of re-uniting the left for the first time since 1984. Preparing to launch into his rehearsed and implausible argument that the PFL merely exposes rather than espouses sexism, he inquired exactly what had caused the present offence. KALI stormed off without reply threatening only that she would form a caucus and return to the confrontation in larger numbers. This hypocritical response was apparently caused by the single word `harpies'.

OLIVER CROMWELL before the Battle of Dunbar Drove



by Judas Iscariot

While JANE McINTOSH and some of the other degenerates, WOODS etc, were at the DOG-TRACK last night, ELLIS was locked in furious negotiations with NUCPS opposite number LESLIE CHRISTIE, over the dinner table at the RIVERHOUSE restaurant, Blackpool's most expensive, compliments of C R HILLS. CHRISTIE, knowing that the SECRET LEFT'S grip on NUCPS was lost once and for all, is ready to offer our leader any price as long as he keeps his own wages, pension and beer money. The doughty YORKSHIREMAN, flushed with this weeks victories, and bored by the petty difficulties facing the Scot, would only accept unconditional surrender, and even then would not commit himself, mindful of the fact that the necessary membership ballot could easily overturn all such private deals. CHRISTIE then crawled to the NEW CLIFTON to lobby BIG BAD DUGGAN, KOWALSKI, HANSON, KAREN EVANS (MSF) and others who had been lured there on a promise of free drinks. As the proud Scot sunk deeper and deeper into his cups, all he could do was mutter `waddo I ave t'do - wasser bottom line?' over and over again until finally passing out in an armchair. On being roused by the night porter at 5.00 am, he sprang to life yelling `DEATH TO JOHN EDMUNDS!' When warned by PFL agents over the usual breakfast of fags whisky and cornflakes, that this would inevitably be reported in today's communiqué, he responded that he had changed the line and it was now "Death to John Ellis".

CAROL ROBERTS, one of the MOD heroines elected this week had clearly not anticipated her stunning victory at the polls this week, gather than waste time representing the members in poxy Blackpool, she's gone on a cruise to Florida and won't be back till the end of the month.

Southern Assembled chair and token mystic FILTH ROGERS is a broken man. So scared is he of the Section women's officer that he will stop at nothing to appease EILEEN GEORGE. He has accepted a cordial invitation from Ms George to attend her Swindon workplace in an effort to oust ALLAN WEBB whose conference dedication to the pursuit of alcohol has incurred her wrath. Rogers, a seasoned PFL activist, thus has every reason to fear for his life. He has been instructed to go underground for a while in order to distance himself from the Popular Front until the ideological frenzy dies down. Sitting through one of the SWP “actchewally” debates he was caught defacing said organisation's masthead by substituting the `OR' for `AN' (work it out for yourselves or ask a friend). While his artistry was being passed around, he hastily performed a similar operation to achieve the “Morning Stalin” in a pathetic attempt to appear balanced. All this because he spotted the fiery Ms George at the rostrum waiting to speak and he thought she was going to raise a point of order against him. Naturally, part of his calculation in accepting the Swindon invitation has been the effect of the new subsistence rates on his potential `real ale' consumption.

Delegates will welcome the news that SUSAN `ARRISON should be back in the frame next year. After successfully bringing forth a little `arrison, she is back in the Service and ensconced in the `Ome Orifice Trade Union Side. Re'earsals are well under way for her dramatic return to the conference floor in 1990. Larry finks its grea'

While the MODR8's drank the town dry, the night of the long knives began early in the BL'84 camp. Following our exclusive announcement in Communiqué 3, LEEDHAM's public admission of secret talks with MENDICANT envoys took place at Wednesday's `84 rally. This, as one might expect, has triggered a new round of intra-factional bloodletting. At the DNS social the LEEDHAM MUST GO Committee was openly planning their next step. That's more than could be said for the National Savings organisers who booked the SHOWBOAT run by a manager slightly to the right of ARTHUR NEWELL after the bar had taken all our money with their usual Blackpool Specials' he blew his top over the two minutes given to PANCHO NORIEGA the Nicaraguan guest whom he assumed to be a Libyan terrorist. The Disco was closed 16 minutes early and for good measure the DJ sacked for allowing the performance to go on. HARDING had been thrown out earlier.

Lack of lucre is another problem for the REDS of `84, who have been twisting the arms of their fulltime officer stooges. VERONICA BAYNE was instructed to levy a £20 tithe on all sympathisers. But while this is only a fraction of the money squeezed from McVICAR and ADAMS every week by MENDICANT, she has found it a virtually impossible task. MURDOCH and HANSON refused point blank to shell out. GEOFF LEWTAS, however, has been more successful. Instructed by LEEDHAM to prepare the anti POPULAR FRONT petition, he carried out his mission like a dog, ordering a headquarters typist to type it and run it off on CPSA supplied paper.

OLAF PALMER, NUCPS President (till next week) is also in town playing second fiddle to his master, LESLIE, who has been conducting top-level negotiations with bottles in bars all along the seafront. Though he toes the party line in public, Palmer has been using his time to tout his insane pet plan to detach all Customs workers from their respective unions and create a new Customs union of his megalomaniac dreams, which, as we said on page 1, end for good next week when NUCPS election results are announced. This however is unlikely to bring FRANK PEMBERTON's dream of becoming VP any closer as he is expected to come bottom of the poll as usual.

Morale amongst the troops is low in the MENDICANT camp despite the best efforts of their cheerleaders on the floor of conference and the disarray amongst their loathed `84 rivals. ADAMS and McVICAR have wisely kept a low profile all week, leaving the glory to their senior theoretician, STEVE ION. They do, however, see the need to seize the initiative from the SOCIALIST WANKERS PARTY which has been poaching their members as well as recommencing the onslaught against BL'84. Cutting the caucus down to size is the first step. The second is to step the campaign to discredit DUGGAN and force MARION's deputy into open alliance with the MODR8s. Not directly involved in the moves to replace LEEDHAM, Duggan's call for BL'84 to withdraw from future presidential contests is his cynical response to the MENDICANT manoeuvre. But within the TROT BLOC, Mendicant face bitter opposition from the SWP who have benefited in recruitment and influence by exploiting Duggan as a hate symbol to rally the lunatic fringe behind them. The other alternatives, ALDERSON and KOWALSKI are non-starters. Alderson is likely to seek promotion and the safer climes of the NUCPS and while it is true that the Polish Count received the largest NEC vote, half of them came from Marion in the first place.

MIKE HUGHES, defending his `oversight' in not selling his usual 200 `New Workers' pleaded that he had additional responsibilities in the shape of his daughter FIONULA.

BERNIE WILLIAMS could teach the Panamanians a thing or two. The Newcastle Central Office elections, organised by the gang of four to give some legitimacy to the puppet regime, was declared in Newcastle at 1.45 pm on 27 March. Williams had however failed to co-ordinate his actions with GENERAL ELLIS, who had already informed the world earlier that morning. To avoid this happening next year, we have been obtained the first draft of next year's results for NCO readers to cut out and keep till March 1990.
The postal ballot results will be confirmed by Howdy Doody in due course and will read:-

K Oliver (CDMT) 1,572,623
C Clewes (CDMT) 1,572,623
G Clewes (CDMT) 1,572,623
J Comb (CDMT) 1,572,623
* A Stooge (CDMT) 1,572,623
* A N Other (CDMT) 1,572,623
* P Grovel (CDMT) 1,572,623
* A Crawler (CDMT) 1,572,623

* actual names to be filled in by B Williams nearer the date.
