Linda Tripp, Monica Lewinsky's "friend" who exposed the affair with Clinton. In deference to the "not speaking ill of the dead" rule, that's all I shall say.

"I am the avenging angel; I come with wings unfurled, I come with claws extended from halfway round the world. I am the God Almighty, I am the howling wind. I care not for your family; I care not for your kin. I come in search of terror, though terror is my own; I come in search of vengeance for crimes and crimes unknown. I care not for your children, I care not for your wives, I care not for your country, I care not for your lives." - (c) Jim Boyes - "The Avenging Angel"

Had she engaged in the same activity with my mate Dave from Ponty, nobody would have heard of her.

 

You could always use the time afforded by the lockdown to write to her, giving his contact details.

Strangely I was reading a book about the history of touring car racing yesterday and the foreward was by Murray Walker, a really nice bloke by the way, and I was thinking that he's reached a fair old age, then further into the book it mentioned Stirling Moss and I couldn't recall for definate whether he had passed away. That's that question answered unfortunately.

He came close about 10 years ago, after a three-storey fall down a lift shaft.

This is really sad; part of my childhood with I'm sorry, I'll read that again and The Goodies, then part of the rest of my life with I'm sorry, I haven't a Clue.

One of those famous people for who you feel a genuine sense of loss at their passing. My heart just sank when I just saw this on Twitter.

But think of the fun he'll be having catching up on events with Willie and Humph.

I too am saddened by Tim Brooke-Taylor's passing.  Thanks, Futtocks, for mentioning I'm sorry, I'll read that again.  Yours is the first comment about his death that I have seen which does so.  It really was great radio comedy.

Altogether, after three..."My name is Angus Prune, and I always listen to I'm sorry I'll read that again, my name is Angus Prune and I never miss..."

Very sad . Fine player in a  really top side and a great media personality as well . Bite yer legs and knock yer block off to ..!

 

When I watch the Prima Donna Divers that play today taunting a defender  - who is scared to try to tackle them in case they get sent off - by stepping over the ball a few times I fantasise that either Hunter, Harris or Smith (Tommy) materialise in front of them and dispatch them into row Z.

I criticised the beeb and fired off an angry e-mail when don fox died and all they showed was the bloody kick. I was so angry.

Here I am, the manager of a great period in reds history.... a legend at leeds and all i can think about is a missed tackle in 73.

brilliant to reminisce  but does any one really think that great leeds side would have won a single game in even the championship these days - fags n booze league finding its own levels at best.

see you later undertaker - in a while necrophile
