    He wouldn't have been able to retire to France, if we had already done Brexit.

    Which is very much alive, unfortunately.

    I was in Guernsey on holiday many years ago, with a mate of mine.

    We were sat in the bar at our hotel enjoying a quiet pint, when a man approached us out of the blue.

    He asked us two questions,

    The first was, did we intend going to the bar the following day, and secondly could he join us for a drink.

    As we probably gave him a suspicious look, he went on to explain that he was staying in a very small guesthouse, that he had stayed at many times before, which didn't have a bar.

    The licencing laws in Guernsey were very tight at the time. All the pubs were shut on a Sunday, and to get served in a hotel, you had to be a resident, or the guest of a resident.

    He arrived for a drink the following day as our guest.

    It turned out to be quite a session, and he really entertained us with lots of excellent stories.

    He was the stage manager at The Royal Albert Hall.

    He was in Guernsey after presenting Windsor Davies, and Don Estelle, their gold disc, for Whispering Grass, at The Watersplash, in Jersey.

    It was a great night, and before leaving he promised to sort us out with free front row tickets, in return for our kindness.

    His stories ranged from, waking up in a hospital bed minus one testicle, after a parachute jump that went wrong during the war, to originally being offered a job at The Albert Hall after lurking at the stage door waiting to get Danny Kayes autograph.

    Windsor Davies was a proper Welsh man, sad that he has died, but 88 is not a bad innings.

    Jeremy Hardy remembered: Standup comedian and Radio 4 panellist who skewered the establishment for decades


    The only way you can ever accuse a Conservative of hypocrisy is if they walk past a homeless person without kicking him in the face
    It seems a shallow observation, but… the Tory Conference are not an attractive lot, are they? I mean, if all those people were born in the same village, you’d blame pollution, wouldn’t you?
    Most harm is done by people who are awake.
    Why don’t they just accept that life is sad and cheer up? After all, it’s not forever.
    The Afghan War has clearly reached a stage similar to that moment at your child’s party where you realise you’ve forgotten to give the other parents a pick up time.
    Marriage is like the witness protection programme: you get all new clothes, you live in the suburbs, and you’re not allowed to see your friends anymore.
    The left case for Brexit was an interesting exercise, a bit like a Marxist review of The Very Hungry Caterpillar or one of those games where you work out whether it would be better to have no arms or no legs
    After winning an open contest with massive support, Corbyn has been accused of “seizing power”...
    I have no wish to speak ill of the dead, even when they are still alive

    Former Prime Minister Harold Wilson's secretary Baroness Falkender - formerly Marcia Williams - has died aged 86.

    Lady Falkender, once dubbed the Duchess of Downing Street, died on 6 February.


    Lady Falkender was believed by many to wield more influence than MPs and even cabinet ministers - something she always denied.

    Karl Lagerfeld, RIP.

    He was 85, & by any standards, a most extraordinary man.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Karl_Lagerfeld

    He had a cat named Choupette, who had it's own Twitter account, @ChoupettesDiary. It has 50,000 Twitter followers. It's not clear if Choupette typed his own Tweets.

    Mark Hollis, once of Talk Talk, but who sort of disappeared about 20 years ago.

    I never knew much about him, or their music, but this was & remains a special track - "It's my life".

    Andre Previn.

    Clearly talented, but didn't take himself too seriously, as this shows,
