The Virtual Stoa
Ann McPherson, RIP.
Maybe he wasn’t your sort of socialist, but Gordon McLennan, ex Gen Sec of the old CPGB, also died last week. I always found him very decent and fair minded on a personal level.

Thanks for this, Charlie. My dead socialist coverage has more or less lapsed completely — as with so much of this blog — but Ann McPherson was my GP for many years, so I was particularly interested to see her obituary.
Oh, what a shame! I really enjoyed Diary of a Teenage Health Freak, and used to think she was a great commentator on the radio. RIP indeed.
