Jimmy Reid was one of my childhood heroes. My father taught me to listen and learn from people like this, and I was given a good education as a result. I remember well the triumph at UCS which ensured that shipbuilding had a future on the River Clyde, but as life has progressed I've despaired as prophets like Jimmy Reid, Scargill, Benn, and many more have been worn down and pushed to the fringes. Truth, however, will never be silenced. My thanks to Big Rab for reminding me of this moment!
