Only a handful of people possess copies of the entire Economic League’s North West blacklist. The original was handed to the two founding members of League Watch – a campaigning group that monitored the Economic League (EL) – by an EL regional director turned whistleblower. That was some 30 years back. The actor Ricky Tomlinson, who appeared in a Ken Loach film, in the TV soap Brookside and in the TV series The Royle Family, has a printed copy of that list and on Channel 4 News on 8 August, he produced it with a flourish, inviting anyone who believes they are on it to contact him. It was an electrifying moment that the Channel 4 News team failed to fully appreciate.

      Two ways of doing this. 1. Contact Mr Tomlinson via his agent. Hamilton Management – http://www.hamiltonmanagement.co.uk/ – have represented Tomlinson in the past and they may still do so or know who took over 2. Wait to see if a class action is being organised (as with the construction workers who sued construction companies linked to the Consulting Association lists) and make specific inquiries at that point. Undercoverinfo will report on any developments.
