James Callaghan (27 March 1912 - 26 March 2005) was Leader of the Labour Party from 1976 to 1980 and Prime Minister of the United Kingdom from 1976 to 1979.[1]


As is standard for a Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, Callaghan attended the Bilderberg group before being elected leader of his political party (in 1963 and 1964).

Uranium from Namibia

"... nevertheless, in keeping with the spirit of these (UN) resolutions, we have decided to give no further promotional support for trade with Namibia..."
James Callaghan, Foreign Secretary, House of Commons, December 1974

The Rossing File awaits the answer to this question:

Why was it that Mr Callaghan as Foreign Secretary, following talks with representatives of SWAPO in Lusaka during January 1975, gave a false impression to members of the Labour Cabinet that Namibia's "sole authentic representative" had no objection to the Rössing Uranium Mine contracts being continued?

Records of that discussion confirm that the SWAPO representatives present gave no such indication.[2]
