Born on June 10, 1940 in Moncton, he was the son of the late Roderick (R.D.) If Maclean's prediction that it would be difficult to mobilise the working class in defence of Russia proved correct in the short term - it wasn't until the Russo-Polish war in 1920 that the campaign managed to organise industrial action or gained any large-scale support - his own alternative perspective of immediate revolutionary conflict proved even more at variance with the actual outcome of the class struggle in Britain. He joined the avowedly Marxist Social Democratic Federation around 1902-3, and remained a member of the SDF and its successor organisations, the Social Democratic Party and the British Socialist Party, up until 1920, the year in which the BSP provided the basis for the launch of the Communist Party of Great Britain. Although he arrived home too late to be delegated to the October conference, which attracted some 400 people, Gallacher attended as a visitor and prevailed on the chair to allow him to address the meeting. Thomson and his informants regarded Maclean with intense hostility and, like some of the prison doctors, were predisposed to view a man with such political beliefs as mentally disturbed. As Lenin explained to the Russian Communist Party congress in September 1920: `the progress of the working class movement requires that we split with the Mensheviks ideologically, and yet at the same time act together with them in the Council of Action'. This presents a before and after look at one teen boy, Mac, who is molested by his doctor. Quoting liberally from Maclean's writings in order to illustrate the depth of his differences with the Communist Party, Kendall emphasised Maclean's political hostility to the CP leaders and his insistence on a separate Scottish Communist Party as part of the struggle for an independent workers' republic in Scotland. Maclean, however, stuck to his line that `revolution here would help Russia most'. The title Scottish Communist Party was rejected in favour of Communist Labour Party, on the proposal of James MacDougall, and the inaugural conference of the new revolutionary organisation was set for October 2. He refused to eat in anyone's house and on occasions refused food even from his wife'. As a delegate to the Communist Unity Convention, Geddes had voted against the decision to apply for affiliation to the Labour Party, and an editorial in the SWC's organ The Worker condemned the decision as `an unpardonable mistake' which would finish the CPGB in Scotland, where communists were `nine-tenths anti-Labour Party'.

Another Scottish contemporary of Maclean, Tom Bell, agrees that he was `a man who had suffered much, and who was no longer seeing things in their proper perspective, due to the warping of his better judgement'. As for his assertion that those who questioned Maclean's mental balance were liars, the only proof Kendall offered was a single quotation to that effect from the memoirs of Scottish Labour MP James Clunie, who had been close to Maclean in the early 1920s but was, for reasons outlined in this article, a far from reliable witness. or. John MacLean Bio MacLean's NHL career included three consecutive 40-goal seasons and winning the Stanley Cup with the New Jersey Devils in 1995. This is not to deny that Maclean was developing an interest in the Scottish national question during this earlier period. This provoked such opposition in the ranks of the British workers' movement that the Labour Party and TUC were compelled to organise a national Council of Action which agreed to call a political strike in the event of war. In January 1919, when he turned down a request by the Scottish nationalist Erskine of Marr to sign an appeal soliciting support from US president Woodrow Wilson for Scottish Home Rule, Maclean stated that he favoured `a Parliament or Soviet of workers for Scotland, with headquarters in Glasgow' to be achieved through `the establishment of the Socialist Republic, in which alone we can have real Home Rule'. The common explanation for Agnes Maclean's estrangement from her husband is that she was `unable to stand the pressures and insecurity of living with a man who lived only for the revolution'. Maclean held a meeting of his Communist Council of Action in Glasgow on 28 August, which attracted 75 people, among them representatives of the Scottish Workers Committee, the Socialist Labour Party, the Lanarkshire Miners' Communist Group and the International Union of Ex-Servicemen. The savage five-year sentence he received and the force-feeding he underwent in prison provoked outrage throughout the labour movement.

A wicket keeper, Maclean played for Australia following the defection of many of the leading Australian cricketers to the competing World Series Cricket competition..

He provides poignant glimpses into their last days with parents and friends, then details the converging blunders that brought death to the firefighters in North Central Washington in July 2001. The force of the Macleans was at one time 800; in 1745 it was 500. A wicket keeper, Maclean played for Australia following the defection of many of the leading Australian cricketers to the competing World Series Cricket competition.. Thomson and his spies were therefore hardly motivated to feed the government false information. Sadly MacLean died before the general election of 6th December 1923 but his socialist ideas and vision can still guide us as we approach the December 12th general election. Apart from his own tiny group, the only significant force that remained outside the communist unity movement in Scotland was the Socialist Labour Party, adherents of the US socialist Daniel De Leon. Details of Maclean's intervention can be found in a Cabinet intelligence report, evidently based on information supplied by a genuine spy on the BSP executive. At that time Glasgow was a melting pot of Irish and Scottish victims of the Highland Clearances, (as MacLean's parents were), who had been driven from their land by English landlords to make way for sheep. He was born in Pueblo, Colorado, in January 1938, to Mary Victoria Curlin MacLean and John R. (Scotty) MacLean. But Dr Garrey, who consistently rejected suggestions that Maclean was insane, was not exactly a disinterested observer himself. General Allan Maclean of Pennycross, colonel of the 13th light dragoons, charged with them at Waterloo. Maclean appears to have recovered well enough from the physical effects of his ordeal to make a swift return to political activity, and he spent 1919 in a relentless campaign of revolutionary propaganda and agitation throughout Britain.

Old tweets from John Maclean Call-Out There's been discussion lately of John Maclean's support of J*, his claims that he has been genuinely marginalised for having very light skin, and his opinion that feminism is about women hating femininity and wanting to take over the patriarchy. It is possible that their diagnosis was based as much on political as on medical grounds, for they were hostile to Maclean as a revolutionary and may well have started from the assumption that anyone with his commitment to the destruction of the capitalist system was by definition verging on madness. It was decided to hold a secret meeting of the Executive to investigate the charges. What do we know about him? The wild enthusiasm with which he was received at each of his meetings evaporated in murmurs of sympathetic concern, many people leaving the meeting while he was speaking, obviously disturbed by the state of their friend and comrade's mind'.

Not only had he been elected to parliament in 1918 as a Coalition Liberal, but he was a former member of the Reconstruction Society, a right-wing body specialising in anti-communist propaganda. All the indications are that it was this latter factor - his hostility to the BSP/CPGB leaders - rather than any consistent nationalist ideology which was decisive in the development of Maclean's new line. In 1390 Lachlan Lùbanach Maclean of Duart, 5 th Chief, and Hector Reaganach Maclean, 1 st Chieftain of Lochbuie, were the first Macleans to achieve full nobility when they granted charters for lands from the Lord of the Isles.Shortly before 1395 Charles Maclean of Lochbuie, the First Maclean of Urquhart, became the first Maclean to be knighted.

The sudden appearance of such a variety of arguments in support of Scottish separatism, none of which had been aired until Maclean's split with the BSP/CPGB, does reinforce the view, cogently argued by Ripley and McHugh, that his attempt to fuse Marxism with an incoherent version Scottish nationalism had a predominantly pragmatic element to it. This remains one of the most powerful and heroic images from the history of the class struggle in Britain. See more of John Maclean on Facebook. This presents a before and after look at one teen boy, Mac, who is molested by his doctor. Shortly thereafter, McLean relocated to Florida (where he received his master's degree at the University of Miami in 1988), before heading to Nova Scotia to teach, and ultimately, settling down in Chicago to focus on his music.

In the midst of an election campaign, I read the announcement in the Press, “Death of John MacLean.” I could scarcely credit the evidence of my eyesight, surely it couldn’t be true! John Alexander Maclean, MBE [1] (born 27 April 1946 in Herston, Queensland) is a former Australian Test cricketer who played in four Tests and two ODIs from 1978 to 1979. He advocated `another line, and that is to save Russia by developing the Revolution in Britain no later than this year'. The war preparations, which Maclean believed were already under way, necessitated `the policy of complete political separation from England. [18] A documentary, Against Wind and Tide, was made about his channel crossing. He was the son of Donald MacLean and Florence MacLean.. John served with the Royal Scots from December 25, 1778 until 1789 when he was placed on the half pay list of the 87th Regiment of Foot.

These moves coincided with the political crisis that arose over the threat of military intervention by Britain and France in reaction to the Red Army's advance into Poland. The split between Maclean and the party he had been a member of for some seventeen years seemed to be complete. It is true that Hands Off Russia rallies were also addressed by certain individuals who were sympathetic to the labour movement and willing to speak out against military intervention. Presents entirely as female, clearly has had a great deal of feminization done, but uses male pronouns. It was only after his break with the BSP/CPGB that the demand for national independence, in advance of the socialist revolution in the rest of Britain, and the associated demand for a separate Scottish party made an appearance in Maclean's political perspectives. He was born in Pueblo, Colorado, in January 1938, to Mary Victoria Curlin MacLean and John R. (Scotty) MacLean. [38], In 2000, Maclean received a Medal of the Order of Australia "for service to sport as a triathlete and swimmer, to the promotion of sport for people with disabilities, and the encouragement of junior wheelchair athletes". James D. Young takes an even more intransigent line in defence of Maclean, dismissing all contemporary reports of psychological disorder as the product of a state-sponsored disinformation campaign in which police spies combined with Maclean's Leninist opponents in an attempt to undermine his position in the labour movement. In this sense, Maclean's mental state was undeniably the main cause of the split. Although the organisation drew initial support from a broad range of liberal opinion, there is little substance to Ripley and McHugh's allegation that the campaign as it actually developed represented `a popular front-type movement'. [20], He participated in the demonstration wheelchair 1500 m event at the 2000 Sydney Olympics, but crashed 1,150 metres (3,770 ft) into the race. `Bribe and destroy whom it may within the ranks of Labour', Maclean wrote, the British government could not prevent the revolution. An early and influential example of the latter thesis appeared in Walter Kendall's The Revolutionary Movement in Britain, 1900-21, published in 1969, which devoted an entire chapter to the question of Maclean and the CPGB. It contained an article by Maclean explaining that `the Government ... has paralysed the BSP' and that this was why it had been necessary to resume publication of the paper. Before Fame He launched his YouTube channel in December 2011. This marriage explains the relationship between Lachlan "Lubannach" MacLean and Mary MacDonald, his wife.

John MacLean is a member of Clan MacLean. As an explanation of Maclean's refusal to join the CPGB Kendall's account was, to say the least, seriously flawed. At Hands Off Russia meetings the question of industrial action against military intervention was a constant theme, and these events usually ended with the singing of the Red Flag and the Internationale. He was elected an honorary chairman of the All-Russian Congress of Soviets immediately after the October Revolution and appointed Russian consul in Glasgow in January 1918. Harry McShane, one of a group of Glasgow BSPers who left the party early in 1920, states that like them Maclean objected to the BSP executive's `lack of an industrial and political perspective for Britain: ``hands off Russia'' was the only policy they had'. Princeton’s only bachelor president, he gave the time and energy a father ordinarily expends on his children to the students of the College, for whom he stood, quite literally, in loco parentis. Since Kendall's book was written, additional source material has become available and a quite extensive literature on the subject now exists. A promising rugby league player in his youth, he became a paraplegic after being knocked from his bicycle by a truck in 1988.

The discussions with Rothstein only served to convince Maclean that he, too, was in the pay of the state. At a meeting in the Worker offices later in August it was decided to issue a manifesto calling for a conference to establish a Scots Communist Party adhering to the following principles: the dictatorship of the proletariat, the soviet system, the Third International and non-affiliation to the Labour Party. In November 1919 at a Hands Off Russia meeting in Glasgow's St Andrew's Hall celebrating the second anniversary of the Russian Revolution the chairman, Pat Dollan of the ILP, announced a proposal by the Trades Council for a 24-hour general strike against military intervention in Russia. The Alliance for Workers' Liberty is an organisation fighting as part of the labour movement for a socialist alternative to both capitalism and Stalinism, based on common ownership and democracy. One explanation, which features prominently in the autobiographical writings of Maclean's former comrade William Gallacher, is that Maclean was mentally disturbed as a result of his wartime experiences in prison. According to Gallacher, Maclean began `seeing spies everywhere, suspecting everybody and anything' and was `suffering from hallucinations'. John was born before 1763 at Cornaig on Coll. Jazz guitarist John McLean is a well-traveled musician -- raised in both Long Island, NY, and Detroit, McLean then attended Berklee College of Music in Boston. Faced with other evidence which tended to support the view that Maclean was indeed obsessed by spies, agents and state conspiracies, and that this had a decisive impact on his response to the formation of the Communist Party, Kendall found a simple solution - he ignored it. Maclean's relations with the CLP were further embittered by his conflict with Gallacher's protege J.R.Campbell, who established an unemployed committee in rivalry with one Maclean had already set up. Given that he could have no interest in joining a party whose leadership was, according to him, in the pay of and directly controlled by the capitalist state, it was presumably anticipated that he would attack the proceedings on the same basis as he had done at the BSP conference a few months earlier. And there is no question that it was a delusion. The attempt by Devon and Watson to certify Maclean, solely on the basis of his suspicions about the prison food, seems inexcusable. It was not Maclean in fact who initiated the campaign for a Scottish revolutionary party. Even the decision by the London leadership to send a full-time organiser, Ernest Cant, to Glasgow - with its implicit criticism of Maclean's own organising abilities - had failed to shake his allegiance. He condemned this `party', which was in reality a recruiting arm of the CPGB, as `a shameful bewilderment' of Scottish socialists. It will take them all their time, for Maclean will regard this as a fresh conspiracy'. John Alexander Maclean, OAM[1] (born 27 May 1966) is an Australian triathlete, rower, and motivational speaker.
