Respect is due: Michael Foot

A former leader of the British Labour party has died (1). He was 96, so not exactly unexpected. Still, always a shame to see those legendary figures shuffle off. Best remembered for overseeing Labour's route by Thatcher in 1983, post-Falklands. Pity that that disaster over shadows his other achievements. Until a few hours ago, a living anachronism - a figure from another era, when there were things like principles and values in the British Labour Party. Some might now need explanations as to what these words mean.
