John McWilliam RIP
I've heard that former MP for Blaydon John McWilliam has passed away. I never met John but Lib Dem councillors tell me that he was always courteous to them despite being on the political opposite side of the fence. He had no problem liaising on casework with councillors when it was more appropriate for them to be leading on an issue and his experience of being a local councillor before being an MP will have helped him there.
