    There have been better weeks. First Mr Borlaug and now Mr Floyd. Keith may not have fed the starving but at least he tried to inspire those who had something to eat to do something good with it. One last long, lingering close up, eh?

    I'm guessing that you haven't listened to Woman's Hour much because your suggested topics have two factual failings. 1. They are too short. A genuine WH topic introduction would go on for some time and involve several sub clauses. In the most extreme examples they twist and turn in an attempt to throw you off the scent that what they are going to be discussing just before the book reading is going to be torpor inducing. The more Pythonesque the better. 2. They are far too direct. Marmalade yes/no, the many uses of Vaseline and how to make a meal for your family out of only bracken and the scrapings from their feet are all reasonably valid to at least nine people in the country. The very best WH article is relevant only to one person and they are usually a mate of the producer.

    Full judgement You can see why she tried to stop it being published. See how many times you can count the phrases: Simply do not believe There was absolutely no evidence to support this assertion Make belief It's worth reading. Edit: An extract taken at random. Don't fret too much about the context. This is typical of the language used throughtout the whole document. Expect a tearful "what would you expect from a male judge.? All men are bastards" appearance on GMTV in the very near furure.

    BBC are reporting he's gone. Mr Stagg might allow himself a brief smile.

    Currently being described on holymoly.co.uk as being gravely ill and close to death. No better source than that, I'm afraid.
  7. Alright, it has been a few years since his telly appearances but quietly after a long illness must have been worthy of inclusion. Probably helping St Pete improve his productivity by now

    Yes there is a middle ground. It is called growing old gracefully. Plenty of people do it and I don't see too many complaints about it. Not having a telly I haven't seen poor Judy for many years and after seeing that picture I think you are confusing growing old gracefully with alcoholic bag lady chic.

    Call yourself taxi drivers? You missed out, "I'd pull the lever myself." Lightweights.

    Marcel Marceau

    I heard the news on the radio last night and immediately felt pig ignorant. For my entire life I had thought that Marcel was victorian and had died over a century ago. What a cretin. As an aside the BBC is having a Have You Say page about Marcel asking for the great unwashed to submit their memories of Marcel and the effect he had on their lives. As you can imagine a page asking the sort of people who submit thoughts to HYS about their memories of a French mime artist is very, very busy at the moment.

    Trivialise? Defend? Don't think anyone is doing that. I think the general feeling was that comparing the offence with that of murder was a little on the hysterical side, to say bone headed things like "the victims of a serial killer are beyond pain" was, well, bone headed and ignorant and arrogant opinions regarding the victims of sexual abuse are not very helpful. One thought for those so fond of playing the parent card. Would it be churlish to point out that if a child is to be murdered, abused (sexually or otherwise) or used in the creation of images "enjoyed" by Mr Langham then the most likely people to do it are the parents?
