What Wilson Are You Talking About. He Was In The 82d Airborne In Nam. The question is about Harold Wilson, who was Prime Minister of Britain from 1964-70 (and also 1974-76). *Harold Wilson, despite his many faults, had a backbone, unlike Blair. He didn't have an inner need to toady and grovel. *Wilson knew that a very large section of the British electorate had no time at all for what they saw as American anti-Communist obsesssions. *The British Foreign Office believed that America was on a hiding to nothing in Vietnam.
