TRIBUTES have poured in following the death of the Windsor Labour chairman described as a “fine and dedicated socialist”.

Angus Cameron passed away on Friday, August 20, aged 61 after a short illness, the group announced on their social media.

Mr Cameron was chairman of the Windsor Labour Party for the past five years and was a dedicated socialist “all his life”.

In a statement, Windsor Labour wrote: “It’s with the greatest sadness that we announce our chair, Angus Cameron passed away peacefully at 7.45pm this evening after a short illness. The world (and Windsor) have lost a fine and dedicated socialist this evening. RIP Angus.”

Royal Borough councillors and national politicians paid their respects via Twitter.

Former leader of the Labour Party, Jeremy Corbyn, wrote: “So sorry. Such a good decent dedicated socialist who gave so much that others may be able to live better lives in a society of justice. He brought music and socialism together.”

Former shadow chancellor John McDonnell said it was a “sad loss to our movement”.

Windsor councillors Lynne Jones, Amy Tisi, and Karen Davies also paid their respects to Mr Cameron.

Cllr Davies wrote: “I’m very sorry to hear this. Sincere condolences to the local party and to Angus’ family and friends.”

A justgiving page was set up to raise £5,000 to cover funeral expenses to give Angus a send-off “he deserved”.

The target has been achieved but any funds left after arranging the funeral will be given to the Windsor Homeless Project, the page states.
