“In a world of change, the learners shall inherit the earth.“
– Eric Heffer
Eric Heffer was a British socialist politician. He rebelled against any policies that his conscience did not agree with. Coming from a working-class background himself, he is best remembered for his efforts towards improving the lot of the working class.
