Youth and education

Born in Prague in what was then Czechoslovakia, Dubs was one of 669 Czech-resident, mainly Jewish, children saved by English stockbroker Nicholas Winton and others from the Nazis on the Kindertransport (Dubs's father was Jewish).[1] His father had fled to England the day the Nazis arrived in Czechoslovakia and young Alf was to meet him at Liverpool Street station. He later said that he clearly remembered leaving Prague station at age six and not touching the food pack given to him by his mother for the next two days. His mother was initially denied a visa but was able to join him and his father in London shortly afterwards.[2]

Dubs learned the facts when Nicholas Winton's story was broadcast on That's Life! in 1988. He later met Winton in person and campaigned for him to be honoured.[3] Winton was eventually knighted in 2002.

He was educated at Cheadle Hulme School and the London School of Economics.[4] He then worked as a local government officer before entering politics.

Career

Before gaining election, Dubs stood unsuccessfully for Parliament on a number of occasions. In 1970 he stood for Cities of London and Westminster, being defeated by the Conservative Christopher Tugendhat. He also stood in South Hertfordshire in both the February and October 1974 General Elections, each time being beaten by Cecil Parkinson.

Dubs was elected in the 1979 general election as a member of parliament for Battersea South and at the 1983 election for Battersea, before losing his seat at the election of 1987. From 1988 to 1995, he was director of the Refugee Council. In 1994, he was appointed as a Labour life peer with the title of Baron Dubs of Battersea in the London Borough of Wandsworth. He was Parliamentary Under Secretary of State at the Northern Ireland Office from May 1997 to December 1999.

While Dubs was still in the House of Commons, John O'Farrell worked in his office and was a Labour activist in Battersea. In his book, Things Can Only Get Better, O'Farrell described the events leading up to Dubs's shock defeat by the Conservative John Bowis at the 1987 general election. Dubs stood for Battersea again at the 1992 election, only to see the Conservative majority increase, against the national trend. In 1994,[5] he was given a life peerage.

Dubs has served on an area health authority and more recently on a mental health trust. He was chair of the Broadcasting Standards Commission until December 2003 and had previously been deputy chair of the Independent Television Commission. He is a trustee of the Open University Foundation.

In the past, he has been a local councillor, chair of the Fabian Society, chair of Liberty, a trustee of Action Aid, a trustee of the Immigration Advisory Service and of a number of other voluntary organisations.

Dubs is a patron of Humanists UK, formerly known as the British Humanist Association.[6]

In 2008, Dubs participated in 42 House of Lords debates, well above average for all peers. He has spoken on many varied subjects including the National Probation Service[7] and road safety.[8] Dubs was chair of the Road Safety Foundation.

Dubs lists his main home as a cottage in the Lake District in Cumbria, which enabled him to claim over £26,000 of overnight subsistence expenses in 2007/2008[9][10] although he has lived in Notting Hill, west London, since 1964. In May 2009, he argued in justification that Lords regard the overnight allowance as a payment in lieu of salary. "We are the only legislators in the world that don’t get paid," he said. "The overnight thing is quite generous because it compensates for not having a salary. In practice that’s how it works."[11]

Dubs is a vice-president of the Debating Group.[12]

He was awarded Humanist of the Year 2016 by the British Humanist Association at an awards ceremony in London.[13]

Dubs amendment

In 2016, Lord Dubs sponsored an amendment to the Immigration Act 2016 to offer unaccompanied refugee children safe passage to Britain amidst the European migrant crisis. Originally rejected by the House of Commons,[14][15] the amendment was accepted by the government following a second vote in favour by the Lords.[16]

In February 2017, the Home Office abandoned the scheme after accepting 350 out of the planned 3,000 child refugees.[16]

Adapt or Die.
Adapt or Die.
Football is evolving rapidly. Defenses are accelerating their ability to adapt to the no-huddle tempo, the full-field passing attack, and RPO advancements of the modern Offensive passing game. The Offense must adapt or get left behind. Fortunately, the R4 System continually advances, making an already proven equalizer the decisive weapon to fast-track Offensive adaptability against the modern warfare of Defense. Dub Maddox picks up where he left off with "Headset to Helmet." In "Adapt or Die," he provides an R4 field manual for coaches and players that provides fundamental tools to improve timing and space creation. Then he reveals how to implement new R4 scheme strategies that drive adaptability through simplicity. In this book you will learn how to: • Maximize drop-time advantages with a "toolbox" of quarterback under-center and shotgun drop • Increase route-side space advantage with a "toolbox" of wide receiver releases • Apply and execute specific route techniques for the Rhythm, Read, Rush and Release families • Reduce the number of concepts carried into the game by creating plays within a pass play • Apply progression platforms that accelerate adaptability for any concept
