It seems particularly cruel when someone possessed with such intelligence and wit succumbs to dementia. So sad. ?

Funniest female impersonator of the Python crew.

Classic in the Life of Brian, impersonating a female, pretending to be a man.  Only Python could think of that!

Very sad

Very saddened by this . Very fun man ... even funnier woman . He will go down as giving us one of the most famous lines in cinema history . And not to be forgotten a very academic man who adored history . So a doubly great man in my book !

He made some very entertaining and informing documentaries, post-Monty Python. What a history teacher he might have been!

I can confirm 30+ less sales for Scotland vs Italy at Workington, after this afternoons test purchase for the Tonga match, £7.50 is extremely reasonable, however a £2.50 'delivery' fee for a walk in purchase is beyond taking the mickey, good luck with that, it's cheaper on the telly.

It's a really good question. I would love to see some impartial statistics on them. Especially private/charter flights like this.

But the news is devastating. Simply awful.

I don’t know if it’s just perception but I always say exactly the same thing . I would never get in one . Been on holiday when it’s been brought up and I just say no way

As we were flying low over the Nevada desert 16 years ago watching the tumbleweed scatter due to the downdraft and then over the edge into the grand canyon I was telling myself how great these virtual reality rides were , it was the only way I could cope with it ? , was amazing though

My older sister, this afternoon in a car crash, we hadn’t spoken for over 20 years not even at our mom and dad’s funerals because we’re both pig headed buggers but the fault was mainly mine.

It’s too late now do anything about It now and it’s already been made clear to me I won’t be welcome at the funeral.

If you’re in a similar situation just pick up the phone and try to make contact.
