Michael Foot: One of the Good Guys
Really nice guys come last in politics but I am so glad there are some of them in the 'game' anyay. They serve to humanize it, restrain the nastier types and reassure the country decent values are not irrelevant. But just don't make them leader!
He said, I once asked Michael why he took such long pauses during speeches, wondering if they were purely dramatic.
He replied: 'Dramatic? Dramatic? No, I'm an asthmatic'
Like you say, it's nice to see some of the 'good lot' in there.
But sadly being working class I now look at labour and think well, they are not the party of the working class anymore, so who are, the nearest, which are the BNP, but I cannot vote for them, so I'm left sitting at home on election day thinking one day.
