Bob Pennington

Red Mole Rising has been asked whether a biography of Bob Pennington is available. Sadly, that is not the case but we are publishing here Bob’s obituary, by Jane Kelly, that appeared in Socialist Outlook dated 9 November 1996 along with a picture of Bob addressing a London IMG rally and a flyer for a 1972 Hull IMG meeting at which Bob was the speaker.   Bob addressed many such meetings over the years.

    Bob often stayed with me in Nottingham in the early days and I had a good appreciation of Bob’s powers of oratory especially speaking to a working class audience ? Sorry he’s no longer with us. Rodney Kay-kreizman. Merton. London. SW19 3NZ
