Ray Galton, co-creator of Steptoe and Son (their yard was once a corro fenced plot in the cleared area around Saunders Grove - genuine Shepherd's Bush!) and writer for the luminaries of British comedy for a generation, has toddled off to join his writing partner, Alan Simpson.
John McCain, Republican Presidential candidate 2008, Vietnam POW. I don't normally laud right-wing politicians, but in his Presidential campaign, when a supporter said she didn't trust Obama because "he's an Arab", he corrected her, "No, Ma'am, he's a decent family man, citizen, that I just happen to have disagreements with." 100% class. That and he also liked to give Trump a serve on a regular basis, including voting to preserve ObamaCare. RIP John.
