He could be having a nice chat with him right now, maybe with a cup of tea and biscuits, rather than being in fear for his soul.  I'd expect that the grim reaper would find it a pleasant change from the usual screaming and denial he must get each day.


Arguing with the forum trolls is like playing chess with a pigeon.  No matter how good you are, the bird will **** on the board and strut around like it won anyway

After having lived with Patti Smith, maybe Allen feels the same way.

Des Lynam is presenting a tribute to Cliff Morgan on BBC1 Wales (Sky Channel 952) at 10.40pm tonight.

It'll probably be available later on the i-player.

 

For those that are unaware, Cliff was formerly the Head of Sport at the BBC, and was a big champion of rugby league. He was most complimentary of it in his autobiography.

heart attack.


What does it mean
This tearjerking scene
Beamed into my home
That it moves me so much
Why all the fuss
It's only two humans being.

74? thought he was older than that, although theres news footage of him on tv age 24 and he looked about 40 then!


the inside of a 3star halex table tennis ball smells much like you'd expect it to.

Same here, but he did start broadcasting at a very young age. A remarkable figure in British television history.

I can't help but think of terrible coincidence that Saturday was also when the new and undoubtedly awful Keith Lemon version of Through the Keyhole started.

I think that for most people under 40 all he'll be remembered for is Through the Keyhole. I never knew about his earlier prowess until the film a few years back.
