Politics and Government

  • In 1889, Ben Tillett came to notice for the part he played in the London Dock strike. As a result of his activities, he was asked to stand as Parliamentary candidate for the Eastern Division of Bradford, but replied 'I shall never seek Parliamentary honours until I have the hearts and consciences of a constituency to back me up in the most spontaneous fashion'. A petition, was signed by over 1000 Bradford people whose names and other information are given in the results of Carol Bartlett's research into the Tillett Petition.
