RIP Michael Meacher

Another sad loss to politics, veteran Labour MP for Oldham West and Royton, Michael Meacher has died aged 75.

A true left wing MP, Meacher served his electorate here in the north for 45 years, having been returned 14,738 majority in May this year. The Oxford graduate was also a lecturer at Essex and York universities and spent 29 years on the front bench, including 6 as Blair's Environment Minister.
