At A1 History Dunbar we are proud of our apolitical stance and impartiality. If truth be known one party is written out "Old Labour" through and through with Fabian connections whilst another has a signed copy of a former Tory Chairman's autobiography "Upwardly Mobile" on his bedside table which actually creates neutrality and a degree of balance.
We also have control over associated "domains" such as Dunbar's poetess.
Some contributors may wish to disclaim any political or associational connections with these notational groups and we uphold their unreserved right to that standpoint.
L.A.D.S of Dunbar acronymically may suggest pseudo-political overtones or purport to have subliminal suggestibility. However this is not the case as they purely attract more traffic via search engines.
