"I was a passionate European, I still am and so was Paddy. In fact when he died he didn’t have a British passport. He had an Irish passport - like John Le Carré, who was a friend. I can’t tell you how much that saddens me."

In 2021 Jane Ashdown, the widow of the former Liberal Democrat leader, gave an interview to Seth Dellow for the Marshwood Vale Magazine. She talked candidly and emotionally about her life in and around the world of politics.

Listen to the interview.
