RIP: Mo Mowlam

Mo Mowlam, former Labour MP and Northern Ireland Secretary, has died.

She was another one of the few MPs that I had a lot of respect for. Not
only was she good, and honest, in her various jobs in Parliament but
she was a very down to Earth and funny person.

The Labour party has now lost two of it's best leading lights in recent weeks,
with the recent death of Robin Cook, but I hope both people shine as an
example for others not only in Labour but in other parties too. Mo's
presence, like Robins, will be greatly missed.

Same here. Very level headed woman with a wicked sense of humour, taking her wig off during long cabenet meets :D

Whilst I wouldn't wish anyone dead, it has to be said that Robin Cook was the worst thing for foreign policy this country has seen since Neville Chamberlain.
