One fewer thorn in the government's side

[ #36188 ]

Gwyneth Dunwoody has died. She was useful:

In 2001 she survived an attempt by Labour whips to remove her from the transport select committee - which under her chairmanship often produced highly critical reports.

Backbench Labour MPs refused to support the move when it went to a vote in the Commons.

This is a shame, as on balance of probabilities her replacement is likely to be a sheep.

Edit - corrected the title. Fewer avocados, less guacamole.
