Douglas Chalmers is a Scottish academic and former communist activist.Born in Dundee to parents who were members of the Communist Party of Great Britain , Chalmers joined the Young Communist League and became its National Organiser in 1981, then replaced Nina Temple as General Secretary in 1983. As Secretary, he promoted a Eurocommunist line, which created conflict with a more feminist trend championed by the new National Organiser, Nina Brown. An incident where he called police to intervene at a fractious YCL meeting in Hackney proved controversial within the wider CPGB.Source: Wikipedia
