Liberator's Ralph Bancroft has died

I spent Tuesday in London and met some Liberator friends at the Comedy Museum where we saw the Round the Horne show.

While it was bona to vada their dolly old eeks, I learnt the sad news that another of our number, Ralph Bancroft, has died.

There are tributes to him by Gareth Epps on Liberator's blog and by Caron Lindsay on Liberal Democrat Voice.

When I first joined the Liberator collective Ralph was central to the magazine and was responsible for its finest hour. That was the Runners and Riders article that led the BBC News one evening in 1984.

I think that is the best way to remember him...
