Tributes to Norman Edwards

Well, there have been some, in the comments on my previous post from yesterday, after I found out from His Master's Voice that Norman was no longer with us. The HMV "story" is titled "tributes to former councillor Norman Edwards" but includes a tribute only from his widow. Nothing from the Labour Party, for which he worked as a councillor for years and as a volunteer. This is disgraceful. One might almost think... Reading Labour Party is chaired by Trish Thomas, who is not a bad person, but there is no statement from her on behalf of the party, even though she and Norman were members of the Labour Group at the same time; nothing on the Silly Boys' website. Nothing. Even if you only found out when I did, or even from my blog, a statement should have been posted today. Has a condolence letter been sent to his widow? Thought not.

Shame on you all.
