I have no brief for Michael Foot because I remember him as quite frankly a bumbling fool! As a young man he was apparently a firebrand, who used to preach socialism en masse.
It is quite sobering to realise that in today's modern world he would have been arrested, incarcerated and most likely abused for his political views.
Michael Foot spoke when we had freedom of speech. His legacy is that Tony Blair and Gorgon Brown corrupted his beliefs. He was a man who just would not believe what Gorgon Brown and Tony Blair have done to the name of 'The Labour Party', Neither would my father!
