David Butler has died at 98, the person who gave us the word ‘psephology’. Remember him and Robert McKenzie on television analysing our general elections? The swingometer!
David Butler passed away surprisingly. At the time of publication, the details of his death had not been made public. We kindly ask that you give the family the necessary and appropriate time to prepare and grieve together at this time.
He once came to a Politics Association Conference on Merseyside and brought his son with him. Naturally, we asked the son how his father voted. He told us that he did not know but suspected it was SDP.
As we grieve alongside family and friends for this significant loss, words can’t adequately express our sorrow for your loss. We were deeply saddened to learn of the passing of this young being. Accept our sympathies, and may God comfort you via our prayers. Kindly accept our sincere sympathies.
Please send prayers and sympathies to the deceased’s family and friends; they would be greatly appreciated during this trying time.
