In an age where we bemoan that our politicians are all style and no substance, Michael Foot had substance in spades. But because he fell short in the style department he was villified.
I think that he would have enjoyed the fact that one of the policies in that so-called "suicide note" of a manifesto, the nationalisation of the banks, ended up happening to stop the collapse of the finance system. Maybe if we'd done it back then, before they threw away our money, we might be in a better position.
