Heard it on the 8.30 news on radio two but can't find it on the internet yet.

Very brave lady.

A very sad loss.

Very sad. My mother knew Mo through work and spoke very highly of her - and her PA.

Really sad to hear this just now. Thought she was fabulous - an intelligent, honest, principled and funny woman. This is a true loss.

Really sad about this. Knew she was ill again from news reports and heard that she'd been moved to a hospice close to her family so I guessed it was serious.

Had alot of time for her - very nice woman by the sounds of things.

Oh bless her heart. I'm not political but she made it far more accessable and involving. She was a lovely lovely lady, there was so little news about her after her admission. It's brought tears to my eyes.

Very sad, I met her once when I went on a parlimentary visit whilst studying for my A levels, she sat next me and said hello and asked me what I enjoyed about politics....

oh how sad
my mum taught her drama
really liked her and admired her dignity

Aw. I hope she had peace. She had a living will and had gone into hospice. Rest in peace, Mo.

Very sad. I wonder if Tony will go to the funeral.

Well done, Mo, you were one of the great women.

I have some friends staying and we were talking about Mo last night - they will remember her leaping up and down to Hit Me With Your Rythym Stick at Ian Dury's funeral, she was a great and charming lady x E

Mo Molam and Robin Cook? It's like a curse!
I liked her too - she just seemed human.
