Just announced. Didn’t like his politics, but he did his service and had a full, active life. A Politician of genuine stature, even if he was the head of a marginal party.
Politics wise, I personally thought he was a bit of a knob and he seemed to have gone a bit doolally in recent years - he was a BBC rent a quote and always had me spitting feathers!RIP.
Always thought him a top guy. And he served his country well.
due to cuts he was probably on the OP
He did sort Yugoslavia out, about 10 timesPolitics wise, I personally thought he was a bit of a knob and he seemed to have gone a bit doolally in recent years - he was a BBC rent a quote and always had me spitting feathers!
That said; if you compare him to some of the so-called front benchers of all Parties today, he was much more charismatic than any of them and there is no denying he put some service in, in his youth. As for the Lib Dem leaders that have followed him, such as Clegg, Farron and Cable, they couldn’t tie his boots.
