Background

Born in Belfast, Mullan moved to Britain 'in the early seventies where he gained a BA in Economics from Kent University. He also holds a CIMA Certificate in Business Accounting.'[3]

In the late 1970s and early 1980s Mullan became a leading member of the Revolutionary Communist Tendency and then the Revolutionary Communist Party. He was active on the issue of Ireland addressing a public meeting on 'Ireland: Its revolutionary significance', called by the RCT at Conway Hall in Red Lion Square, London on 26 May 1978[4] and writing in the RCP journal Revolutionary Communist Papers in 1981.[5] He was national organiser of the Irish Freedom Movement (in 1988),[1]

RCP connections airbrushed?

His Battle of Ideas biographical note is rather modest about his long term involvement with the LM network, though it does mention his time at the University of Kent where he came under the spell of Frank Furedi and the Revolutionary Communist Tendency:

Phil Mullan is an economist and business manager. Author of The Imaginary Time Bomb: Why an Ageing Population is not a Social Problem, he has researched, written and lectured on economic, demographic and business issues. Research projects have included work for the London East Research Institute at the University of East London and the Tomorrow’s Company business think-tank.
He alternates, and sometimes combines, work as an economist with business management, and currently is working full time as UK Managing Director of Easynet Global Services, the global corporate communication services company. Born in Belfast, Phil moved to Britain in the early seventies where he gained a BA in Economics from Kent University. He also holds a CIMA Certificate in Business Accounting.[3]
