So farewell then Abdul Latif

Readers of Viz magazine will be familiar with the Newcastle curry house owner Abdul Latif.

I was sorry to read on the Journal website that he has died aged only 52.

It also turns out that he was a Liberal Democrat supporter and had stood as a council candidate several times. The newspaper site quotes tributes to him from Greg Stone and Peter Hardy, and Chris Foote-Wood was writing his biography.

Later. And Lembit Opik has paid tribute to Abdul Latif too.
