In search of a Hart

I’ve finally been getting round to putting together a proper triptych picture of Ken Tappenden, David Hart and Paul Staines for my blog entry about them.

However, I’ve had great difficulty finding (okay, I *couldn’t* find) a picture of scab miner-bankrolling, Thatcher-advising, coup-backing property developer and playwright David Hart.

I’ve trawled the interweb, all the usual places; couldn’t find a chipolata. I waded through all my miners’ strike and spook books; nothing. But I know I’ve seen at least one published picture of the dude…

So if any of you out there can point me in the right direction, I’d be most grateful.

In the meantime the Richard John Bingham snap shall act as a placeholder…

  1. There was a pic of Hart in the story accompanying
    http://www.guardian.co.uk/baefiles/story/0,,2099990,00.html in June 2007. Maybe try a digital edition of the paper if you subscribe. Hope this helps

  2. Cheers for the lead! 🙂

  3. Interesting that there’s so little online about this David Hart fellow, despite his notorious involvement in strike-breaking, and the fact that he was a millionaire Times journalist. I don’t suppose that the absence of any photo of whatsoever online could be linked to his former employment in MI5, could it?

  4. Hi Tom 🙂

    I don’t think I’ve ever heard that one – what references are you using?
