The #hello my name is... campaign was started by Dr Kate Granger and has become a huge success, spreading worldwide. A remarkable achievement made even more so because she was diagnosed with a rare are aggressive form of cancer in 2011. She died on Saturday, aged just 34.

There have been many tributes to her on the news today, but this piece by her friend says it better than them all.

There are three fundamental questions for anyone advocating Brexit:

1. What, precisely, are the significant and tangible benefits of leaving the EU?
2. What damage to the UK and its citizens is an acceptable price to pay for those benefits?
3. Which ruling of the ECJ is most persuasive of the need to leave its jurisdiction?

Yes, I heard a bit of her interview on the radio and felt quite moved.

There have been attempts at this sort if thing in the past but this one seems to be a monument to the lady.

Let's hope so, medicine needs re-humanising in some areas.
