Ron Brown

Sad to hear about Ron Brown's death last week. The former Leith MP was someone who I had been a comrade in the Labour Party, Scottish Socialist Alliance and finally the SSP. There were plenty of stories about Ron but he should be remembered primarily as someone who was dedicated to fighting on the side of working people throughout his life. Ron is buried tomorrow.

The picture above shows Ron shaking hands with Arthur Scargill at the 2004 Mayday march in Edinburgh with the banner of his beloved trades council at the side.
