In 1984, "The People" branded Ian Bone 'the most dangerous man in Britain'. They were only too close to the truth. From the inner city riots of 1981 to the miners' strike and beyond, the butler's son and founder of "Class War" was indeed a greater thorn in Margaret Thatcher's side than the useless blatherings of the Official Opposition.

I'm ready to smash the state!
