Bob Davies 1940 - 2009
The Montgomeryshire County Times and the BBC are reporting today the death of Bob Davies last Sunday. Bob lived in Welshpool, Montgomeryshire, and was a journalist with the Farmer's Weekly for 44 years. He was hugely respected by all connected with the farming industry. He was also greatly respected by politicians who have taken an interest in rural affairs over the last half century. Throughout my years as a Councillor, 'quangocrat', and Assembly Member, Bob was one of the journalists I most respected. He was always informed, tough and straight. His questions were always to the point. He would truck no dodging of the issue. His death has been sudden, and this blog offers condolences to his family. Rest in peace.
