My letter on Michael Foot published in The Times

Sir,

It is ironic that a key policy in Michael Foot’s “longest suicide note in history” — the 1983 general election manifesto — the pledge to nationalise the banks, does not seem quite so naive after the recent financial crisis and the many billions that the State has spent propping up the banking sector. Who knows, perhaps his opposition to nuclear weapons in 1983 might soon be viewed as evidence of great foresight and moral integrity?
