These are the words of Jimmy Reid, 1932 to 2010. He declared "A rat race is for rats. We're not rats. We're human beings". He died last week.
He left the communist party in 1976 to join labour. He left labour when Tony Blair took over and in 2005 joined the SNP. He remained true to his principles.
He was a strong unionist, opposing the closing of the upper clyde shipyard. It remains open.
