RIP Denis Healey

Definitely one of the good guys. Not sure about this though:
The death of Denis Healey on Saturday means much more than the passing of a grand old man of British politics. He was the last of the political generation that shaped post-war Britain, men and women who had not only lived through, and often fought in, the second world war, but who had also seen at first hand the terrible years of sustained depression of the 1920s and the 1930s.
Great man though he was, he wasn't the last of the breed. One of them is still an active Parliamentarian no less...
