We have lost a politician of deep conviction, a man universally regarded as a man of intellectual brilliance, personal warmth and decency – the last true spirit of great causes. His legacy has to be that he believed substance was everything. He must have been appalled by our current de-valuation of political principles which favours politics driven by fear, the media and unforgiveable compromise. Sad, very sad.
