Conrad Russell remembered

Out canvassing and committed the cardinal sin of going into a house (but the lady in question was not well so it didn't seem right to keep her on the doorstep and she was clearly keen to talk).

Lady in question was very keen to tell me that she had had Lord Russell sitting on her sofa for over an hour. It transpired that this was during the by election and I could actually remember the details of her problem from a conversation I had had with Conrad. She was a little upset to learn that he had died but keen to tell me how approachable she had found him. Clearly, he had brightened her day.
