Fiona Jones

The story of Fiona Jones, the once high flying Labour MP, elected in 1997 with every prospect of a great career ahead of her who sadly drank herself to a premature death earlier this year was highlighted in the Sunday Times Magazine yesterday. The article may only be telling one side of the argument, but it does illustrate the some of the problems faced within politics. I'm quite certain that these kinds of disputes are not exclusive to Labour, and politician and activists of all political colours should not be affraid to unite to prevent similar tragedies elsewhere.
