He would certainly get my vote.
Legend. We need afew of them over here
While he doesn't live that sort off lifestyle, I do have a lot of respect for Dennis Skinner (aka The Beast of Bolsover). I met him many years ago at a Labour Party conference and rather than stay at the hotel with the others at the party's expense, he paid for his own stay at a cheap bed and breakfast. When he came to give a talk at a Worthing Labour Party meeting, he travelled by second class rail (again at his own expense). A very friendly, charming (unless your a Tory, of course), and articulate man.
This article in The Independent sums him up quite well;http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/po ... 92699.html
The difference between fiction and reality? Fiction has to make sense.
