Gwyneth Dunwoody died last night. It's sad as I always thought she represented what an MP should be; independent, passionate, hardworking. I guess she'll be replaced by some simpering, ex lawyer, yes man. http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk_politics/7353743.stm I think it also might mean a shift in transport policy as she was a very fierce critic as chairman of the Transport Select Committee. It probably also signals the end of the Coastguard as we know it. Accountants have always struggled with the 'value' of saving life. Damm difficult to enter on the balance sheets, don't you know. She was their keenest supporter.
