Thanks to all our 'Peggys' 

We owe them a lot, all those determined lone Liberals who refused to stand aside and leave politics to the Tory and Labour class war regiments. People like Peggy Grantham who was a lone Liberal voice on the old Bletchley UDC so many years ago, and even up to her death last week was a sharp and focussed commentator on the goings-on in the Labour-infested parish politics of Bletchley.

Without people like Peggy to keep the Liberal spirit alive in the 1950s and 60’s, we would need to re-discouver from scratch what it takes to be a Liberal in politics. Our task today would be that much harder.

So this is just to say thank you, Peggy. And thanks to the other ‘Peggys’ out there. If you have the good luck to know one of these survivors please do keep in touch with them. You may occasionally get an earful if they feel the need to ‘speak truth’ to some power you now have but that could be good for your political soul.

Milton Keynes LibDems will be helping remember Peggy this Tuesday morning 1045 am at Crownhill Crematorium.

Peggy, thanks again.
