UNCOMPROMISING: Eamonn McCann

Love him or loathe him, Eamonn McCann has a quality too rarely seen in politics nowadays: integrity. The words he speaks have always come from the heart, not from what the latest opinion poll or focus group suggests is advisable.

He has championed causes long before they become popular. Playing it safe isn't in his DNA. He is principled, passionate and uncompromising in the best possible way.

At Stormont, he spoke and dressed with the same authenticity and defiance of his civil rights days. Not for him the suit of stultifying conformity, nor a set of cliches tailored for one tribe or the other.
