Veteran Labour MP Gwyneth Dunwoody Dies
Probably won't mean alot to many people, but Dunwoody was a proper politician - the Labour Parties equivalent of Thatcher in many ways. Outspoken,
principled and strong minded.
Having been on the receiving end of both her scorn AND her praise for different issues when I worked in her Crewe constituency, I can honestly say
that shes one of the few politicians I've ever met that I actually respected and admired.
Her death is a major loss to UK politics.
