Mo Mowlam

Was really sorry to hear the news of her death - many people have expressed the same from all parts of the political spectrum.
It is one of my regrets that I did not know her in her earlier political career. What I did observe was a very warm and funny woman with a strong streak of humanity. Call it the common touch, call her a people's politician - call it what you will but the bottom line is that she was one of those rare people who are able to engage with others on a number of other levels.
