Tribute to Dan Hope

Following the news of the death of Dan Hope, Labour Group Deputy Leader and Housing Spokesperson, Cllr Ross Houston said:

"We were very saddened to hear of the sudden death of the Barnet Bugle's Dan Hope earlier this week following a short illness.

"Dan was a prominent and colourful part of Barnet's local political scene, and we will very much miss his ascerbic tweets which he fairly distributed at targets across the political spectrum.

"Through his blog he provided the people of Barnet with a video record of so many Full Council and committee meetings, and there's some memorable material preserved there to both amuse and cause political discomfort to all sides.

"We are particularly grateful to him for coming along to and filming every session of our @BarnetLabour Housing Commission. Housing was a passion he shared with us - appositely writing one word - "land" - on a flip chart as his contribution to the Commission's launch.

"He was dedicated to Barnet, and we all enjoyed his company.

"Our condolences to his family and friends. Rest in Peace Dan."
