    Political Discussions And Ranting Thread

    Thats the truth. It's not so much the Hillsborough thing it's the lying. These things have a way of growing irrespective of the topic. When they can't issue a straightforward denial and kill it it leaves them open to any other mud that gets flung (the false address is another example). Yes, but the mention of Hillsborough just makes me switch off. It's surrounded by so much ill-feeling, finger-pointing and mudslinging. I don't know why anybody would claim to be there if they were not, and I don't know why anyone would care if they were or not. OK, focus on the fact he filled in his nomination form with a false address which is illegal. Stoke should be an open goal for UKIP but their incompetence could let them down.

    Her majesty is secretly attending the Emirates today. See if you can spot her in the crowd. But just to be clear, she's not a gooner.

    Donald J Trump

    He's playing to his core constituency. I try to do what I said and the liberal judges try to block me. Give me more power and i'll get things done.

    Who Do You Consider "famous For Being Ill"?

    This is Andy Warhol 15 mins of fame stuff. In a world where whosit from Made in Wherever gets on a game show with people watching other people watching people on TV who's to say who's a celebrity.

    Are we sure that was all there was, or all that the police recovered? Or indeed all that the police say they recovered? Funnily enough it's snowing here.

    Thoughts On The 2017 List

    He could die this year, he could go on two years. He was never a dead cert. Dead certs on the list are Christie, Downie, Bracknell, Michael and they still could make the year (well, not all of them for sure...) You're definition of dead cert then is somone who could die sooner than people who aren't dead certs but not definitely.

    The Dead Of 2017

    ??? According to science, everything that happens obeys the laws of nature. In fact, the medieval Cartesian view that there is a ghost with causal powers in the brain-machine is currently regarded as ridiculous by scientists. No death is a tragedy since everything that happens obeys the laws of nature. Cartesian relates to Descartes 17th Century; medieval 5-15th Century.

    I agree on Parfitt, but Adams did shitloads for BBC Radio, that an archive piece can be played any quiet week. There was a five month delay once, but I can't mind who off the top of my head. Indeed harsh on Parfitt who on being a recognised name and face was enough of a national figure to trump much Last Word fodder. Strangely for a man who's riffing was reliable and precise the timing of his death was very bad. It wasn't whatever he wanted.

There are no rules, which is why it's difficult to predict. It's not about obituraries it's about celebrating lives.
