A very impressive bench unveiled in the town square today. A fitting tribute to Gail Usher.

I liked his performance in Alec Guiness's 'orchestra' in The Ladykillers. He could do sinister very well..

Agreed Comrade. He was never frightened of criticism and, unpopular though his views were, presented them without fear and was very influential. He ignored the 'bogeyman' potential of discussing Communism and revolution and looked dispassionately at the evidence. Think of the damage that irrational fear of the 'Red Menace' has done over the last 100 years.

Or - think of the damage that the Red Menace actually did over the last hundred years. Stalin's purges, and Mao Tse Tung 's great leap forward come to mind.

but what do I know? :smile:

Eric Lomax has died aged 93. Possibly the last survivor of the prisoners who worked under the Japanese on the 'Death Railway'.

Connelly's Plaice if memory serves.
I see that Pat Jones has died. Until 2003 he ran the vacuum cleaner shop on Rainhall Road and he could always get you that elusive bearing that was going to save buying a new washing machine. A nice man and a useful shop.

My Dad liked that chippy. He used to always send us there, but it wasn't open on Saturdays when we went over
