for a diverse, democratic and accountable media

Paul Foot

CPBF\'s Barry White writes: \"Paul was unique, combining the best in investigative journalism with a wonderful ability of analysing complex situations and ideas and presenting them in an understandable and often humorous way. A master of the polemic, great orator and lover and writer of great literature. Above all, he never lost the socialist vision that a better world was possible—a task we have to continue in his memory.

\"I have shared many hours, some frustrating, and many uplifting especially in the last few years, watching, with him the changing fortunes of Plymouth Argyle. Sad he will miss their return to Division One in a few weeks time. \"Paul lived a good and great life. He will be sadly missed, but never forgotten.\"
