Buffoon as I recall, one of those patronising clowns that should have been smothered at birth.

Is there anyone you like? The chaps on Blackpool Beach possibly?
It is surely better to be pissed off than pissed on

Callaghan was a good Prime Minister under some very difficult circumstances, should be a pretty big funeral.

Jim became the oldest ever ex-PM today, overtaking how old Harold MacMillan when he died...

Perhaps time for him to bow out...
plan to live forever or die in the attempt

Jimbo is indeed the longest lived ex-PM as I wrote elsewhere in this forum.

I did not know there was a thread on him as when I searched I did not use his Sunday Best monicker.

I believe Jim Callaghan has been dead from the neck up since at least 1960! ;)

To quote Jim:

"Crisis, what crisis?"

At least he was a real Labour man. Not like the arrogant buffoon in Number 10 at the moment.

Audrey, Lady Callaghan of Cardiff died yesterday aged 89. The Callaghans were married for 66 years.

I seem to recall their daughter married Peter Jay the British ambassador to the USA.

Should the title of this thread not be: "James, Lord Callaghan, ex-PM"?

Yep, number 3 this year. Pity Prince Rainier isn't on this time (last time was 1997), as I suspect he's a gonner soon....

The only place he's still alive is this site. C'mon guys, get the red line up and claim VICTORY. I'll be devastated if I find you taking Easter off. Could've sworn death was at 24/7365 occupation.



Maryport is a disappointment for which there is no cure, but the annual Deathrace thread hereabouts provides welcome distraction.maryport2if5.jpg
