Thanks for putting the local and regional "Solidarity's", some I've not seen before.

Yeah, we got these from Ken Weller, although really it's only scratching the surface of what was produced. Apparently there were 30 local Solidarity groups which produced publications at various times.

We do have at least some material from most of the biggest ones now, though.

I thought it came from that guy from Alan Partridge saying he had "full sex with a woman"..

I suppose we'll never know where it really comes from, it'll just have to be one of those legends of the class struggle..

I didn't realize there were so many local editions over time.
Well, keep 'em coming.

So, only the first issue here is from the West London group?

The rest are all the South London ones that also appear here?
