RIP Shirley Williams, creator of the Comprehensive Education system.

So good, she sent her own daughter to a private Grammar school.

Don't all good socialists?

RIP. I had a bit of time for her, she had spirit but her views aren't the same as mine on lots of things. Brexit being one.

RIP - She made politics interesting and relateable.
Not always right, but she was coming from the right place. 

Of course there are cracks, that's how the light gets in.

Couple of interesting (or not) snippets. As Shadow Home Secretary she managed to persuade the authorities to allow her to serve some time in Holloway as a convicted prostitute to see what conditions in there were really like. As a child actress she was short listed for the lead role in the film National Velvet but just lost out to the then 12 year old Elizabeth Taylor.  

Fuck 'em. This city will always be ours, but the club SADLY won't.
