Canon Kenyon Wright

I was very sorry indeed to hear of the recent death of Canon Kenyon Wright - the news was reported here ...

... during the early 1990's, when I was heavily involved in many of the devolution-campaigns of the day, alongside colleagues like Campbell Christie and Bob McLean; Kenyon showed me an enormous amount of personal generosity; and was particularly helpful when we separately launched Fairshare (archived website here; and background here) - the campaign for a fair, local voting system.

I've even spotted an old BBC story of some 16-years ago, from the actual day of the campaign launch, which is fascinating to read all these years later :-)

My thoughts are with Kenyon's family and friends.
