ANYBODY with a heart for the Labour Party’s past or admiration for a genuine campaigning journalist will be at a special memorial event in honour of the late Michael Foot on Monday night. The special event at the Lyric Theatre in the West End will see relatives, friends and colleagues speak fondly of the sage from Pilgrim’s Lane in Hampstead.

He may well excuse himself because by then he could be signed off on paternity leave.
