Nabarro, Gerald NAB 1: Portrait of a Politician
London: Robert Maxwell, 1969. First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good/Very Good. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall 0080071090 Sir Gerald David Nunes Nabarro (29 June 1913 - 18 November 1973) was a Conservative Party politician of the 1950s and 1960s. Nabarro had a flamboyant public profile and a reputation for taking maverick political stances. At the 1945 general election, Nabarro stood as the Conservative candidate in the Labour-held West Bromwich constituency. The seat was comfortably held by Labour's John Dugdale, with a swing on 18.6%, much higher than the national average of 10%. In the general election of 1950, Nabarro was elected as Member of Parliament (MP) for Kidderminster, Worcestershire which he held until 1964. He characterised himself as an old-style Tory: he opposed entry to what is now the European Union, was a proponent of capital punishment, and supported Enoch Powell following the latter's controversial Rivers of Blood Speech. Even five years earlier, on 5 April 1963, while appearing on Any Questions?, he said "How would you feel if your daughter wanted to marry a big buck nigger with the prospect of coffee-coloured grandchildren?", remarks which were excised from a repeat of the programme the following week. He was also instantly identifiable due to his much-lampooned handlebar moustache. He sat on the first ever football pools panel to decide the outcome of abandoned matches. (Book ref. 039326) £9.99
