    Default Baron Ashley of Stoke, 1922 - 2012

    Sad news that Jack Ashley, Baron Ashley of Stoke died yesterday.

    He was marvellous campaigner and champion of rights for deaf people, and I'm told, a wonderful MP. He was one of my political heroes.

    Not wishing to seem insensitive but are we not a little premature. He is to die in 2014 according to the 1st post.

    Pure genius! Those "BDF Annual Awards"? I nominate Richard Allen for "Moderator of the Year" (is that enough creeping now?)

    As someone who grew up with a disabled relative I was well aware of Baron Ashley's tireless campaigning for the disabled he was one of those MPS who are a rare breed in that whatever political colour you are you tended to respect him. May he rest in peace.
