Ann Clwyd has represented the Cynon Valley as MP since 1984, and was previously MEP for Mid and West Wales..

The Labour politician tells how her early career as a Guardian journalist forged her strong links with South Wales' coal miners, and recalls the day she went underground to save Tower Colliery.

She also tells Martin why she believes Tony Blair's reputation has been unfairly trashed, about her support of the Kurdish cause, and why she's still battling for answers after her husband's death.
