It is with deep regret that I have been informed of the demise of another Green Party stalwart.
Margaret Wright, GP councillor in
until recently, passed away last night. Cambridge
I first met Margaret when she was Principal Speaker and I was her GPRC Friend. She always had great energy and was a true trouper.
I remember meeting her after her appearance on the Ali G show. She was exhausted but triumphant. She was the only guest that ever got the better of him when during a debate on aerosols she stuck her armpit in his faceJ For once he was speechless! I have the video of it somewhere.
When she came to Barnet for an election, the reporters were not interested in the MP’s; they all wanted to meet ‘the housewife who had bested Ali G’
I will miss her big smile and our phone chats.
