SAD NEWS FROM THE LIBERAL DEMOCRATS
Yesterday, I received a number of calls from people who just wanted to share how sad they were at the passing of Shirley Williams, Baroness Williams of Crosby.

I met her a couple of times at party conferences and she once came down to the New Forest and joined me for a bit of door knocking / canvassing. I read her autobiography and was pleased to see that she had strong connections to the New Forest, growing up as a child.
She was a “class act”, very intelligent and knowledgeable but really able to connect with people without a hint of “I know better than you”.
