Death of Charles Kennedy

Statement on Death of Charles Kennedy

“Charles Kennedy’s untimely death marks the passing of a unifying politics that gave a sense of place, culture and people, in the politics of our islands without resorting to the kind of tribal politics that appears to divide us now.  Throughout, many years he conducted non censorious, non partisan but robust politics that remained respectful of individuals yet not of illiberal actions.”
.
“I knew him as far as his Highland Politics was concerned and as a student attending debates or campaigning in elections. He was a fundamentally decent man and for all the talk of flaws’ he was in the balance of all things, someone to be greatly admired and remembered. Regardless of ones views of the recent direction of the Liberal Democrats as a party, he is still a model of liberalism and radicalism that should be a lesson to us. “
