Farewell David Blunkett - Poem by David Keig

So farewell David Blunkett
We knew you as a forthright man
With that Edwardian beard
Making you seem as if you
Were from another age of politics
In which principle not opinions counted
So farewell David Blunkett
England hopes to see your kind again
Of honest and defiant men.
