RIP Jimmy Reid

Even those who disagreed with his politics could not deny that Trade Union leader Jimmy Reid, who died this week,  was a man of profound integrity. Cardinal O’Brien’s tribute is worth highlighting.

“In many ways, the passing of Jimmy Reid is the passing of an era,” he said. “Even if many disagreed
with Jimmy’s choice of political party or even political philosophy, few could have disagreed with his raw desire to protect the dignity of the ordinary worker.”
