Albert Booth RIP

My uncle, the former Labour MP Albert Booth, died from cancer in the early hours of this morning, peacefully in his sleep, at the age of 81.

He lived and died a socialist and trade unionist. Old Labour. And a really nice bloke.

One of his finest hours was the introduction of legal rights for health and safety representatives, a guide to which I have posted here.

I might post some photos or more thoughts later, but I'm a bit too sad right now.
