Editorial comments: An article by Anthony Howard in the New Statesman, 16 August 1963, examines the rise of Liberal support in Finchley and Friern Barnet. MT is quoted as saying, "It’s the golf club, you know. That’s where it all started and where the whole thing has come from". Local Liberals had espoused the cause of Jews who alleged that Finchley Golf Club operated a membership bar. The source or origin of MT’s remark is not clear.
