RIP Tam Dalyell

Backbench MP for several decades, at times a thorn in the side of both his own and opposing parties, though highly respected by many of different political persuasions.

Poser of the West Lothan Question (on what rôle Scots MPs ought to have following devolution), tenacious in demanding answers about the sinking of the Argentinian ship General Belgrano during the Falklands War, and about who really carried out the Lockerbie bombing, amongst other things. Contributed to New Scientist magazine for over thirty years in the form of its Westminster Diary column.
