RIP Cyril Smith

by Iain Roberts on 3 September, 2010

I was sad to hear this afternoon that former Liberal and Lib Dem MP for Rochdale, Sir Cyril Smith, has died.

He was a larger than life character in many ways and will be sadly missed.

More on Cyril at Lib Dem Voice.

    Met him once during the 1979 general election campaign. I was never quite sure how his very right-wing views fitted with the then views of the Libs – but what a character.

    Never knew / met Big Cy, but, did see him once… catching a London train at Piccadilly… first class ofcourse !
    Perhaps you could take a lead from him… no nonsense, free thinking, larger than life…!
