"MGM Lion knew him much better than you and has rebutted your claim."
Have no intention og going here Keith - it's not my practice to denigrate performers personal backgrounds.
Peter was always quite open about his father's active support for Mosley's Fascists
I raised his name among a list of others who came from backgrounds from a time we now regard as misguided - I did not use Peter's background to attack his contribution as an artist as others still do with MacColl, 8 decades after the event (and over a quarter of a century after his death)
Ive been wondering about Mike lately - he usually puts in an appearance on these threads
