Harriet Harman, Jack Dromey and Patricia Hewitt and what they did, or did not do

One thing bothers me about the current furore concerning Harriet Harman, Jack Dromey and Patricia Hewitt and what they did, or did not do, when helping to run the National Council for Civil Liberties in the 1970s.

They assert they were entirely blameless.  They assure us they acted properly at every stage.  Mr Dromey tells us robustly that he was instrumental in driving undesirable organisations out of the NCCL.

Yet no-one who was active in the NCCL at that time is coming forward to back them up.

I assume that minutes were taken of NCCL meetings.

Is it not possible to have those minutes published?

Especially the meetings where Jack Dromey is proposing the motion that a specific organisation is expelled.

Then this whole matter can be cleared up in no time.
