Well he'd have known it was coming! Of course he wouldn't, he was a fraudster. Good riddance!

I was surprised at scouse's reaction. He knew Derek Johnson, they played football together and went to the same school. He wasn't a fan at all, quite the opposite. But he was a bit upset when I told him, I guess that happens when your peers start to pop their clogs.

I am waiting for my CD copy to arrive.

​​​​​I ordered it on Amazon a couple of days ago (it wasn't available on 2 day delivery). Little did I know that Neil Peart would be dead before it arrived. :(

I'm desperately sad to hear this. I loved "Mr Derek" on BB, and he was just fabulous in the "Yes Minister" etc. series.
