Only the good die young...

BBC News

Mo Mowlam 1949-2005

How sad,

Only weeks after the tragic loss of Robin Cook, Mo Mowlam has passed away at the all-too-young age of 55. For those unfamiliar with British politics, Mo Mowlam was an immensley popular politician, instrumental in revitalising the Northern Ireland peace process at the tail end of the 1990s.

She became one of Britain's favourite politicians, when she revealed that she had been suffering from a brain tumour for a number of years during the peace process, which accounted for her cruelly remarked upon weight-gain and frumpy haircut - it was of course a wig. She was famous for her friendliness and her "common touch" - and used to remove her wig during tense negotiations to relieve tension.

She stepped down as an MP in 2001, but the public's affection for her only grew.

I never knew Ms Mowlam, but these people did and it underlines what a great person we have lost.
