Funeral for Fiona...

I understand the funeral for former Labour MP Fiona Jones will be tomorrow (Friday) morning at Lincoln Crematorium at 10.30.

Her tragic death HERE and HERE was the subject of a column in The Times by Alice Miles earlier in the week. For those interested, it's HERE

She concludes:

That image of a teenage son heaving a mother in an alcoholic stupor back into bed for her to die, alone, is a dismal reminder that behind the machinery of politics, beyond the criticism and the cynicism we fling, lie real people struggling in a failing system. And it’s not all their fault.
