RIP Gywneth Dunwoody

We are poorer for her loss:

Gwyneth Dunwoody, the longest-serving female member of Parliament, died last night at the age of 77.

The Labour MP, a stalwart with a reputation for speaking her mind, was known for being a fierce and independent advocate of investment in public transport.

I'd be perfectly happy if there were no socialists at all, but if we must have them she was the type to have.
