Rest In Power, Davey Ayre

Davey Ayre died today. One of my Campaign Patrons, he signed my nomination papers at the last General Election, and he attended my court hearings.

A legendary fighter, not least in the ultimately vindicated cause of the Shrewsbury 24, and lately in the cause of the County Durham Teaching Assistants, Davey must have been in his nineties.

His funeral is provisionally booked to take place at 1pm on Monday 15th November, at St Thomas’s Church, Stanley Crook.


  1. Supported by him, there's no doubt who was the Left candidate for North West Durham.

    1. I can silence anybody with that one. And I do.
