    Thinking back on my first week on @Twitter, I am obviously influenced by the death of Pat Hollis & memorial service for Tessa Jowell & also Josie Farrington who had a long career in the @UKHouseofLords in #Government & opposition.

    I went this morning to an amazing and moving service at Southwark Cathedral for Tessa Jowell who died from brain cancer in May. The Cathedral was packed. One tribute caught the mood. Tessa’s life was “defined by her devotion to public duty”. The highest praise. https://t.co/u4VtIgTqwr
