Cherie and I are so sad the hear the news about Glenys. She was a huge figure in progressive politics for decades: incredibly smart, brave, determined and resolute in standing up for what she believed was right. Whether in fighting the cause of development, and the eradication of global poverty, social justice in Britain, equality for women or making the case for a European Union of weight and influence in the world, Glenys was passionate and persuasive. She was of course an enormous support to Neil but she was a leader in her own right. And as a couple, they were a joy to be near, full of fun, the life and soul of any gathering. In her last years, as Stephen and Rachel have written, she took her illness with the same steadfastness which had governed her life. Our deepest condolences to Neil, to Rachel and to Stephen, and to all the wider Kinnock family. Glenys will be mourned in many countries and corners of the earth.
