  1. Only if there was somebody capable of running the country, which there doesn't seem to have been for quite some time.
  2. We desperately need a Guy Fawkes.

    I've checked it out, and it's just a cacophony of irritating noises.

    The Fringes Of Fame/family Of The Famous

    I remember the news reports of this at the time. Intriguing story. Stroppy coroner, families in denial, disputes over CoD .... "A post-mortem established that Mr Haddon-Cave, of Clerkenwell, London, died of electrocution. He was identified by DNA comparison with his brother." Ewww. Sounds messy.

    It's more the "choked on own vomit" that drew my attention. I mean, who else's vomit might he have choked on?

    Dead pool quick questions.

    I think there's a few that can be joined at any time, like 30/30 and 40/40, if that helps.
  10. I'm surprised that one hasn't cropped up before. It was pretty cringey at the time, and I'm not talking about the language but the sentiment.

    Horse Racing

    It is popular in the UK though, so I would have thought the Daily Mail might oblige since it likes US sports people (or "athletes" as they are all called in America).

    But not the poem.

    Any more food-named celebs for the list? Jenny Eclair? Kevin Bacon?

    That should answer a few questions about why she was known and respected by so many.

    British Character Actors

    Sheila Steafel needs to be in here. Still no official obit, but her agent has confirmed her death. barry langford @LangfordBarry ยท 8h Very sadly I can officially confirm that our multi talented client Sheila Steafel has passed away after bravely battling leukemia. Sheila was a comedy giant, and she will be hugely missed by Simon and I. We were proud to have been her agents. #RIP barry langford and Sheila Steafel

    At least I'm not named after something that's shaped like a dick.

    Oh no, I didn't take it that way. I would use that expression about any actor who was regularly on TV from my childhood onwards. No, it was because you said your age was a factor as well as location, ie that you weren't of an age to have watched the kids' programmes that were mentioned.

    Fuck off, you little shit. I already had your card marked.

    Play School - Play Away - Childrens TV

    It's not actually children's programmes that I associate her with. As LFN said, she was a character actress (and a voice actress) who turned up in all sorts of radio and TV programmes, as well as on the stage. Anyway I'm not seeing an official obit yet.

    She'll be a "recognise the face if not the name" for a lot of people.
