Farewell Dennis Skinner

Rather odd for me to be starting this thread, but I shall actually miss the irascible old leftie. Great sense of humour and humility.

I was and am astonished and saddened by the Bolsover result. He'll be missed.

Yes he is going to be missed.

Even Thatcher had a begrudging respect for him.

He is now 85 yrs old and has had a very long innings, so surely time for change? seeing him in the "House" will tell you its time to get out the slippers and pipe and sit in front of the fireplace, you deserve the rest.

I thought Ken Clarke was the father of the house or whatever they call the oldest guy.

Skinner is ace but by the sounds of it he's really unwell after that hip operation. Did zero campaigning and couldn't attend the count so probably for the best. And he's 87 not 85. A little grim to say but he's definitely worth a punt on any celebrity death sweepstakes you have in 2020.

Father of the House is about longest serving MP not the eldest. Clarke and Skinner were sworn in together but Clarke was sworn in first due to his surname. Skinner is 6 years older and was the oldest in the house.

Harman would have been a good leader but probably that ship has sailed. Starmer is to blame and managerial. A woman who progresses subjects that affect ordinary working class women's issues such as childcare, housing and pensions rather than just focussing on glass ceilings may have traction.
