Jim Padmore, a good friend of mine through politics has died at the young age of 47.

He was one of the most commited and educated Marxists i know. He was at every picket line, demo and meeting he could make. Yet its the stuff like after meeting drinks, the books he leant me and getting nostalgic and sun burnt with him at Durham miners Gala last year that i remember.

I will be at his funeral singing the Internationale with Pride in the memory of a great class fighter and a good mate.
