Death of Paul Arditti


In my chapter on my search for the most powerful politician in Alderney, I interview Paul Arditti, one of the most controversial and influential of contemporary Alderney politicians. I just heard that he died suddenly, age 64.

I’m not sure where this leaves my article, or where it leaves Alderney. I do know though that Alderney will not be the same without him. He was a charismatic and fascinating guy.

Here’s a picture I took of him in his garden:

    Dear Dr Kahn-Harris,
    I am Paul’s sister and would just like to correct his age it was 62, not 64 he was born in 1951.
    When your article on Paul is finished I would be very grateful if I could see a copy of it.
