Member for over three decades, spanning seven general elections; notes that he was a decent and compassionate man who rose from Springburn sheet metal worker to become the first Roman Catholic Speaker of the House of Commons since the Reformation, and the first working-class trade unionist to serve in the Chair of the Commons; and believes his life to be testament that ordinary citizens can reach the highest offices of state through hard work and commitment to the representation of the people.
