Description

John Thomson Stonehouse was a British Labour and Co-operative Party politician and junior minister under Harold Wilson. Stonehouse is perhaps best remembered for his unsuccessful attempt at faking his own death in 1974. Stonehouse had a Trade Union upbringing and joined the Labour Party at the age of 16. He was educated at Taunton's College, Southampton, and the London School of Economics. Stonehouse was first elected as Labour Co-operative Member of Parliament for Wednesbury in a 1957 by-election, having contested Twickenham in 1950 and Burton in 1951. By 1974 most of these were in financial trouble, and he had resorted to deceptive creative accounting. He was imprisoned in HM Prison Wormwood Scrubs, where he complained that the prison workshop where he worked played pop-music radio stations. He was born on 28 July 1925 and died on 14 April 1988.
