The sight of Shirley Williams on Newsnight paying tribute to Michael Foot was too much. One can only assume that the producer who invited her onto the programme was too young to remember the early 80’s. The remote control did its job.
Steve Richards says what needs to said about the life of Michael Foot:
Whenever someone feels fashionably bored with politics they should take a look at the career of Michael Foot. If they are still bored they have no interest in life.
Harsh, but true.
