Date of birth: December 9 1936
Education: University of Edinburgh, BA and MA, Political Studies
Career: Royal Navy
Spouse and children: Wife Mary, son Arran, daughter Isla


Party and ideology: Liberal Democrat, moderate social liberal 
Political History: From a well-known (and formerly rather wealthy) family of Scottish Conservative patrons, Dunk caused a stir by announcing he was to stand as a Liberal in 1980. He secured the nomination for his home seat of Gordon, where he has served ever since. His main political focus has been international development, where he was an early supporter of debt relief and the 0.7% aid target. In part he was convinced to join the Liberals by friend and colleague Paddy Ashdown.

MP for Gordon (1983-present) 
Other attributes: 
Member of influential political family - [15] - the MacMahons have been prominent Scottish Tories for centuries, back in more prosperous and wealthier times for the family, so MacMahon’s declaration of support for the Liberals in 1980 attracted considerable attention

  Labour Party Conference Clause IV Debate
Posted by: Mac - 11-23-2019, 01:02 PM - Forum: 1995 - Replies (1)

"This Conference agrees to re-write Clause 4 of the Party Constitution so that it reads: “ The Labour Party is a democratic socialist party founded to represent working people. It believes that by the strength of our common endeavour we achieve more than we achieve alone, so as to create for each of us the means to realise our true potential free from exploitation and for all of us a community in which power, wealth and opportunity are in the hands of the many, not the few, where the rights we enjoy reflect the duties we owe, and where we live together, freely, in a spirit of solidarity, tolerance and respect.”
