Wilf Page: The Countryside Communist

Mike Pentelow introduces his most recent book, which describes the life of Wilf Page.

Mike Pentelow introduces his most recent book, which describes the life of Wilf Page, a champion of agricultural workers, a promoter of justice in the countryside, a rural communist councillor during the difficult cold war years and a lifelong community activist. Page was best known for his role in the National Union of Agricultural Workers, and in the European Federation of Agricultural Unions, but he was also a prominent local politician in Norfolk, and was a communist councillor for Edgefield for twenty-eight years.

Mike Pentelow was Morning Star industrial reporter in the 1970s and 1980s, and later worked on the Transport & General Workers' Union journal, the Record. From 1999 to 2008 he was editor of Landworker, the journal for rural and agricultural members of the union (now part of Unite).
