A difficult day as we try to come to terms with Elizabeth's death. And if its difficult for us then it must be doubly difficult and more for her family. There are a couple of nice tributes in the papers and group members are contributing to an obituary, the writing of which may help some in the difficult times. What is also helpful is the huge number of messages coming in various forms into the group office and via group members. Elizabeth may have been a feisty character who did not fear a disagreement but she was clearly greatly respected by many people from across the political divides and beyond.
I had a whole bunch of things to write about the ward and in particular the Community Council meeting tonight which was dominated by a debate about Meadowbank stadium and the campaigns to save the No.1 2 and No 13 buses, but, important as these are, and I do not be-little it in any way, none of it seems significant in the context of Elizabeth's death
