Politicians probably don't figure much in this section and many don't deserve it. However John Hume is probably a worthy exception. He devoted his life (often at risk) to peace in Northern Ireland. If only he had been listened to 50 years ago perhaps the Province would not have gone through the horror that it, and the mainland, went through. One of my favourite anecdotes was when he was being interviewed with Ian Paisley and he leaned across and said that if the word No didn't exist in the English language you would be speechless!
