I had never heard of Fenner Brockway so did a little research. A very interesting man, dedicated to his ideals to the very end. I think a lesser man would have given up and assumed a more normal life.

Very nice photo, VP!

I didn't know him but from the statue I can imagine him ranting away on Speaker's Corner. A long life of necessary utopy.
