Jim Callaghan heckled during his 1979 election speech


A rather forgotten incident here when Pat Arrowsmith – veteran CND campaigner – heckled a beleaguered Jim Callaghan who had held on to his Cardiff seat in the 1979 general election but just lost the country to Thatcher and the Tories. She was shouting at him about Ireland and British intervention in the province. Callaghan probably had other things on his mind – like getting back to Downing Street, packing his belongings and going into opposition.
