Tony Blair
Former Prime Minister of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and Executive Chairman of the Tony Blair Institute for Global Change

Giles Radice was one of the unsung heroes of Labour’s long march back to power after the 1979 defeat. He represented the best of intellectual talent. He was hugely thoughtful, clear-sighted and with a keen understanding of Labour history. He used all of those gifts to map out a serious and sensible path to power for Labour during the long period of opposition before the 1997 election. I personally found him immensely helpful, supportive and insightful. I used to listen to him and be persuaded by him. He was also good natured and kind hearted, loved by those who knew him well. My deepest condolences to Lisanne and the family
