Wallace Lawler arrives at Westminster

Wallace Lawler's victory in the Birmingham Ladywood by-election of 1969, as I blogged last month, is the Liberal victory no one talks about.

That is because there seems to have been a racist element to his campaigning. He did give one of my maths teachers a good hoofing though.

Anyway, this photograph shows him arriving at Westminster as a newly elected MP, along with his wife and one of his daughters.
