Rest in peace.

It says a lot about her principled, independent mind that Blair’s bully Hillary Armstrong tried to end her leadership of the Commons Transport Committee, and says even more about the high regard other MPs held her that the Government’s will was over-ruled.

I’m not normally one to long for the good old days, but when you stood Dunwoody next to one of those weak-willed, dissembling stuffed-shirts who make up the majority of Labour’s newest MPs, you do wonder whether she came from a superior – and now, sadly, dying – breed.
