Shame to read this but not surprised. Always quite liked him though. Found him charming on the few occasions I had any dealings with him. He seemed to know how to handle people - but as we know has his failings, especially where women are concerned. Glenda Jackson was twinkly and lovely. Alan Johnson is an absolute darling.
Delighted to hear this! I find her to be one of the most powerful actresses I've ever seen, and totally agree with her politics. She's one of the few remaining Labour politicians who clings to the old tenets of the party and had the guts to challenge grinning PR-man, Blair.
