I'm still p***ed off that Malcolm is not with us anymore. Last Friday I kept thinking I saw him out of the corner of my eye but when I looked properly it was always someone else. I guess it indicates just how normal it is to have Malcolm with us at UNISON gatherings. I can't say I was a close friend but Malcolm was just fundamentally important. It was so easy to talk to him and easier still to respect and like him. He was a lovely guy. He was a great example of how trade unionists can work positively together. It is particularly his positivity I'll miss. I am missing him.
