He rejoined Tribune as editor from 1948 to 1952, and was again the paper's editor from 1955 to 1960.Throughout his political career he railed against the increasing corporate domination of the press.Foot became a journalist, working briefly on the New Statesman, before joining the left-wing weekly Tribune when it was set up in early-1937 to support the Unity Campaign, an attempt to secure an anti-fascist United Front between Labour and other left-wing parties.The campaign's members were Stafford Cripps's (Labour-affiliated) Socialist League, the Independent Labour Party and the Communist Party of Great Britain (CP).It was suggested in 2011 that he became a member of the secret Auxiliary Units.In 1940, under the pen-name "Cato" he and two other Beaverbrook journalists (Frank Owen, editor of the Standard, and Peter Howard of the Daily Express) published Guilty Men, which became a run-away best-seller, attacking the appeasement policy of the Chamberlain government.

Foot joined the Labour Party and first stood for parliament, aged 22 at the 1935 general election, where he contested Monmouth.On the recommendation of Aneurin Bevan, Foot was soon hired by Lord Beaverbrook to work as a writer on his Evening Standard.(Bevan is supposed to have told Beaverbrook on the phone: "I've got a young bloody knight-errant here. Have a look at him.") At the outbreak of the Second World War, Foot volunteered for military service, but was rejected because of his chronic asthma.A centrist faction of the party broke away in 1981 to form the SDP.Foot led Labour into the 1983 general election, when the party obtained its lowest share of the vote since the 1918 general election and the fewest parliamentary seats it had had at any time since before 1945.
