I was very sad to see that Prince Philip has died at the age of 99.
There is likely to be a pause in political campaigning as a gesture of respect. There will be no political posts on this blog until further notice.
Prince Philip served his country for longer than the traditional measure of a human lifetime, first as a naval officer - who fought in World War II against fascism and the Nazis - and then in giving decades of faithful support to Her Majesty the Queen.
Thoughts and prayers are with Her majesty and the royal family at this sad time.
Rest in Peace.
