Iain Macleod

This Guardian story about politicians suffering from (and, by inference, rising above) disability refers to something I did not know: that Iain Macleod (1913-1970), a British Conservative politician who served as a cabinet minister in various governments in the 1950s, 1960s and briefly (just before his death from a heart attack shortly after abdominal surgery) in 1970, suffered from ankylosing spondylitis for more than 20 years.
