I first heard George on the wirelss in "Life of Bliss". Then, as Flash Harry in the St.Trinians films. Minder was also a classic series. He was most prolific and certainly leaves a large body of quality work.

RIP George.

Brian Sewell, the art critic, has died at the age of 84. Sewell was witty, acerbic, outrageously posh, and more Queenly than Her Majesty.....I found his observations, particularly in relation to modern art, absolutely spot-on. See BBC Arts Page

Jackie Collins has died of breast cancer aged 77 years. What a brave woman to keep it from everybody, as appears to be the case.

Geoffrey Howe has died 9th October 2015 at the age of 88 years.

He was former Conservative Chancellor alongside the 'iron lady' Mrs Margaret Thatcher, the better Tory years in my opinion.
