113: GLC 15 - JAK

Raymond Jackson in the “Evening Standard” 2 April 1986

The Greater London Council was disbanded on 31 March 1985, following the passing of the Local Government Act 1985. Here we see Livingstone looking for a job – hence the Livingstone Memorial Service on the poster. Irish is twinned with gay because Livingstone had made highly controversial political gestures and contacts with the IRA during his period in office. Lesbians are powerfully buxom but burly women in tweed dress suits who smoke pipes, yes?
