    You are so right, Raffi! I’m in the photo – the woman in green – and I just returned to England yesterday after the most amazing fortnight of my life. Baroness Cox is unbelievably committed to and motivated by the cause of freedom. Nothing about her is showy or for soundbites – she’s 100% genuine.
