Just a short post to acknowledge the death of Jeanette Fitzsimons.
She was quite exceptional. A totally dedicated politician who lived her life according to her beliefs. Someone who always chose to argue the merits and not engage in the political game playing that is all too common in Parliament.
Someone who was completely on the right side of all of the significant issues that our world is facing.
She was of the firm belief that the role of politics was to achieve good, not to exercise power.
