    Ah. Wow. A really principled man who stuck to his beliefs through the good times and bad. There aren't many like him left, and even fewer that people listen to.

    Heard an interview with him just a couple of weeks ago that he did after his latest diary came out, always a brilliant listen.

    RIP

    That rarest of things, a principled politico.

    Vale Tony.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."

    Was really saddened to hear of the Great Man's passing. Here was a bloke who put his Peerage where his mouth was. Whether you agreed with him or not, he was a bloke who remained pretty bloody consistent and principled throughout his days. The world is poorer for his passing.
