More than 1,200 people left messages of condolence following the news.

Another added, “I’m so sorry for your loss. Your mother was truly some woman. She was a fighter for workers through and through. Thinking of you all.”

One said, “Tommy, I only had the privilege of meeting your mother on a few occasions but she made an indelible impression. She was a huge personality, a passionate fighter for justice and most importantly, a truly beautiful woman.”

Glasgow times:

Sheridan came to prominence in Scotland during the campaign against the poll tax in the late 1980s when he was the public face of a mass campaign against the payment of the controversial tax.

He formed the Scottish Socialist Party in the late 1990s which eventually went on to elect six members to the Scottish Parliament at its peak.

His mother often ran for the party and the Solidarity Party, which he later led.
