I remember in the general election of 1966, George Brown took a public meeting in the Bear Pit. What an event! In those days politicians could and would take on all comers - this was no exception. The heckling was continuous, but George never lost his temper or his grip. He loved public meetings. When it finished, everyone gave a round of applause. George and his entourage adjourned across Mersey Sq to the pub, where the debate continued - all comers welcome. Not like today's politicos who need protecting from the public.
