John O'Grady (Real Bermondsey Labour) has died

John O'Grady, who stood against Peter Tatchell as the "Real Bermondsey Labour" candidate in the 1983 by-election died earlier this month, reports the South London Press.

Most of the anti-Tatchell smears in the campaign came from O'Grady - rather than from Simon Hughes, as is often claimed. Back in 2006 there was some discussion on this blog of the extent to which there was Liberal involvement in his campaign.
