Yeah he was one of the good ones and if he hadn't had to battle booze at times especially during his leadership I think we might have seen a different liberal Democrats party in recent years.

During the expenses scandal it was revealed that he had claimed for a packet of skittles and a teddy bear to use in some school event and that's it. He was far too honest to be a politician.

He was a far higher class than many of the other career dullards. A great debater who actually stood up for his values.

Also I think he was the only Lib Dem MP who voted against going into the coalition during internal party talks.

Another one from the un-spun generation lost, he had a great run politically but 55? Bloody hell way too young.
