Denis Healey RIP

Former chancellor Denis Healey has died at the age of 98.

Of course I strongly disagreed with many of his political opinions and actions but I always had the impression that he was a great human being.

Before his forty years service to his country in the House of Commons and twenty-three in the Lords, he also fought in World War II,  was the military landing officer for the British assault brigade at Anzio, and was made an MBE for his military service in 1945.

Rest in Peace.
