Michael Foot

The passing away of Michael Foot gives rise to all sorts of reflections.  The tributes to his life have focused on his integrity and decency and those are great things for which to be remembered after a long life and career in politics.


It was only last weekend that I picked up for the first time his biography of Bevan; I turned straight to the pages recounting Bevan's 1957 Labour Conference speech against unilateral disarmament.  I was gripped.  Foot managed to combine a biographer's informative account with a deep (and painful) personal reflection that puts the reader in that Conference Hall.
