He spoke out about the greedy among us, the multinationals, against wars for profit, in Afghanistan and Iraq.A champion of the abolition of the monarchy, and any strike that was going, he stood shoulder to shoulder with us all, with unfaltering belief and abiding determination that power and the powerful should be held to account.
We must continue his deeds, set about building a genuine alternative to capitalism that does not get bogged down in sectarian bullshit, carry on the torch of his beliefs in a better world and his determination to end the sorrow of war.A world where politics is not the language of brute force but an articulated vision of the possible - of justice, progress and peace and equality.
His last written volume was called ' Free at Last' and now he is, but his breath of devotion will run forever.He died peacefully, at his home in West London, so so long comrade. R.I.P
" There in every human heart from the beginning of time there have been two flames burning , the flame of anger against injustice and the flame of hope that you can build a better world. And those two flames are burning in our hearts today, in the hearts and minds of millions of people."
