John Hume, an architect of the Northern Ireland Peace process, has died. A somber day for Ireland, the UK and America.

He will be much missed.

A fair few from that time could have learned much from a man as principled and decent as John Hume.

A fair few running about now could do the same.

Despite decades-long attempts to smear and discredit him Hume has been perhaps the most universally respected politician in the long sad history of this island. His achievements were legion  (bringing credit unions to Ireland alone would be enough for most), but if the reality-shattering impact of his unswerving morality and relentlessly-espoused philosophy is ever doubted, reflect on the completely inconceivable image below.

"I will talk to anyone". Never forget.
