was a wonderful human being who used her life to make the lives others better & brighter. She did make a difference to so many in Britain. We should mourn the passing of such a kind and empathetic person. But we must also take up her legacy and be good to others.

I interviewed once. She was warm and friendly, engaged and welcoming, She didn't have to be - I was a junior journo for a civil service newspaper and she was a senior minister with loads on her plate. But she made me feel like the centre of her universe.

So sad about . Not a politician in the normal sense — human to the end of her fingertips, no ego, always interested in others, even the most junior reporter at Westminster in the 1990s. Thank-you Tessa.

Amazing how MP's only want to campaign for things when they either need it themselves or experience it.... My brother only lasted 10 months, no one campaigned for him

As Britain seems so divided in wake of Brexit, the sad death of is a salutary reminder that politicians can retain their decency and transcend tribal divisions. A lesson well worth remembering at Westminster

was a loyal, kind friend to many of us but in her final campaign she was also a fearless and radiant force. She fought for common good in medicine and in society. She stood for reconciliation over division. She embodied love.

Sad to hear that has died. She did so much for particularly in our formative years. Inclusivity and fairness at the heart of all she said and did. We learn so much from her in terms of making change, building consensus always with respect & authenticity
