I met Janey a couple of times at lefty folky events. She struck me as a genuinely nice person.

She contributed a great deal to the fabric of Scottish culture.

Hat tipped.

"For Janey and Norman, political debate was never just about making speeches or votes in parliament. They believed in and endlessly practised the joy of campaigning. They propagated the power of the written word, however humble the publication or pamphlet; the use of humour as the most deadly of all weapons; and above all the power of song in the armoury of activism."
