Grahame Smith Scottish Trades Union Congress (STUC) General Secretary said
“Margo’s passing is a great loss to her family first and foremost but also to Scotland. She made an enormous impact on Scottish politics and public life. She was a passionate fighter for all she believed often taking on issues that other shied away from. You could disagree with her but never fall out with her and if she chided you it was always with the best intent and with a fair degree of humour.
“The thoughts of all at the STUC are with Jim and all of Margo’s family. She will be missed by us all.”
