Letter: Mistaken identity

Sir: It was good of Peter Popham to clear me of the charge of membership of the Socialist Workers Party (31 March) but, to my knowledge, he is the first person ever to have raised such a bizarre suggestion in the first place.

For the record, I am also not a regular contributor to Tribune and nor is my book The Enemy Within a biography of Arthur Scargill - it is an account of the role played by MI5 during and after the 1984-85 miners' strike.
