Peter Sedgwick [cont.]

(See DSW#110, below.) A correspondent writes with this (possibly apocryphal) anecdote:

The late Duncan Hallas used to tell how there had once been terrible internal disputes in Peter’s branch and Peter gave a great deal of thoght to how the problem could be resolved. Unfortunately in travelling to the meeting to discuss the issue his bus was seriously delayed and by the time Peter arrived the other comrades had already discussed the branch problem, decided it was Sedgwick, and expelled him. (This was a story Peter often used to tell against himself.)

Thanks very much for that. Anecdotes about Dead Socialists are always welcome at the Virtual Stoa.
