Author of the "world's longest suicide note" dies

Former Labour Party leader Michael Foot has died, aged 96.

Mr Foot was elected Labour leader in 1980, succeeding Jim Callaghan, but stood down after a heavy defeat in the 1983 election to Margaret Thatcher.

 

A wonderful long life, but in a way it's too bad because while he could be accused of not having changed with the times, he did get to see those who could change throw Labour Party principles overboard along with the problematic policies.
