Mum Rosemary was real a flower of M.C.P somebody who knew politics and I am not ashamed to call her a real politician of our. time Somebody who knew what it means to belong to a party and why are. You in that party. That’s the only woman who stuck herself to the ideas of the founder of the party and lived it to the letter. May her soul rest in peace.
