Eric Forth RIP

Much attention has been drawn to the sad death of Eric Forth (for example here and here).

I never met the chap, not being political or anything of that sort, but at a time when Nu-Labour and the hordes of Ignorance sought to diminish the authority and integrity of the house, in the main through securing the election of the crapulent, ignorant, fraudulent and indolent, Mr Forth stood out as that rarest of birds, the Consumate Parliamentarian who understood the full power of the House to scrutinise, revise, frustrate and irritate.

He will be missed, and it is to be hoped that they dig deep into the 'A' list to find a worthy successor.
