The best people of 2014

Section:

Our selection of the best men and women of 2014

 

Continuing our series, we chose five men and five women who’ve achieved remarkable things this year. Our selection of the best people of 2014 includes a mixture of individuals from the world’s of fashion, film, journalism, medicine, music and politics.

 

The men

 

The Rt. Hon. Gordon Brown MP

best peopleHe may have been one of the worst Prime Ministers in history, but in 2014 Gordon Brown stepped up to the mark. His heartfelt plea to voters in the Scottish independence referendum vote saved Great Britain.

 

Simon Danczuk MP

best peopleThis Labour Member of Parliament for Rochdale has shown resolve and determination throughout 2014 in campaigning for justice for victims of historic abuse in Westminster and elsewhere. Simon Danczuk deserves to be knighted as soon as the paedophile politicians are shown for what they truly are.

 

James Foley (1973 – 2014)

best peopleAmerican journalist James Foley’s family believe he did not die in vain when he was cruelly beheaded by ISIS in August 2014. A foundation created in his honour “will push for the discussion, development and coordination of policies that are consistent, transparent, and accountable to all American citizens held captive world-wide”.

 

Shia LeBeouf

best peopleIn February 2014, this eccentric actor wore a paper bag over his head emblazoned with the words “I am not famous anymore”. In doing so, Shia LeBeouf summed up the views of many who believe that the “celebrity culture” that has overtaken our planet has become nothing other than tedious.

 

Stephen Sutton MBE (1994 – 2014)

best peopleAs of the 31st  December 2014, the late Stephen Sutton’s Just Giving page has raised over £4.5 million for the Teenage Cancer Trust. Of him, Kevin Spacey’s filmmaker-in-residence, Grigorij Richters, commented: “He wanted to make sure that we remember him as the positive person he was and not as a cancer sufferer”.

 

The women

 

Victoria Beckham

best peopleThis year, Victoria Beckham’s rise from popstar to international tycoon and fashion icon was completed. She could still do with learning to smile but she truly deserves the respect of the nation.

 

Kate Bush

best peopleThis eccentric songstress came out of the closet in 2014 and played a sell out show of 22 nights after years hidden from public view. Kate Bush delighted audiences and brought joy wherever she went.

 

Stella Creasy MP

best peopleThe Labour MP for Walthamstow and a leading campaigner against Twitter trolls, Stella Creasy secured a victory for common sense when one of her abusers, Peter Nunn, was jailed for making threats against her in September 2014.

 

Prof. Janet Hemingway CBE, FRS, FMedSci FRCP

best peopleThe groundbreaking work of the British parasitologist and director of the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine (LSTM) Janet Hemingway, it was revealed this year, has resulted in the halving of the number people dying from malaria since 2001.

 

Malala Yousafzai

best peopleThe youngest ever recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize aged just 17 in October 2014, Malala Yousafzai has courageously fought against the suppression of children and young people and for the right of all children to education. The German Chancellor Angela Merkel termed her: “The identity of Pakistan”.

    1. Shame on you. A disgusting lack of dear Kate and Gerry McCann proves how biased you are. You should be supporting their campaign to find their beloved daughter Madeleine.

    2. It is disappointing that Steeple Times forgets to give the South African Bulldog Gerrie Nel a mention. We in Britain can also do with a real man prosecuting cases in our courts.

    3. Did you say Gordon Brown?! My god the man is a Plonker! Mr Steeple, are you feeling ok? As for the rest of them, I don’t now, I’ve never heard of any of them before.

    4. The others are fine….but Victoria Beckham? She is such a poseur. Obviously Anna Wintour told her to look glum all the time as it might convince people she was deep. No one can be ‘deep’ being part of the ghastly Spice Girls.
      Stella ‘whatever her name is’ tries the same trick of attempting to be enigmatic. As for her husband and his ludicrous tattoos..
