    RIP

    Not surprisingly the last survivor of the 1937 tourists - remarkable for their longevity as many as five of the party reached their 90's and another three lived well into their 80's

    Out for 99 and being a cricketer, I'm he would have to appreciate the irony of it. If he could though.
    Beware the lollipop of mediocrity. Lick once and you suck forever...

    RIP Fardin Qayyumi, a true legend of CW

    ELO cellist Mike Edwards killed by a 600kg hay bale. From the BBC.

    RIP. No less tragic for the fittingly 70s sitcom nature of the accident.

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."
    - Barney Ronay on Mario Balotelli

    Bloody hell. What a way to go.

    I heard the other day that obese 80s politician Sir Cyril Smith just died. My only surprise is that he lasted this long.

    Must admit I'd assumed the old boy had pegged it ages ago.

    RIP, do we have any movie specialists now Pratters is gone? Would have been good to see what he thought about him.

    But on a human scale, RIP Mr.Curtis
