    I read that and agreed with it, and then thought about it a bit, and it occurred to me that just the same could be said of Attenborough. :banghead: However... it is what he has done while on the television, and via it, that marks the enormous difference between him and the irrelevances also listed.

    It would seem probable that a majority of the British population - and many more abroad - have gained knowledge and understanding of, and sympathy for the Natural World solely due to David Attenborough's efforts. A very great man.

    He is now in his nineties, there are no obvious candidates to continue his work. :(

    Not having this either.

    Disgraceful behaviour breaking down in his press conference to announce he is retiring after Wimbledon if not before.

    Shami Chakrabarti, Chris Evans and Jeremy Vine. They are what make this country what it is today.

    Absolutely. For their efforts, they should all get to kneel in front of someone wielding a big sword.:whistle:

    Like all treasures, they would be best buried underground in a big box. :)

    Billy Connolly. Probably one of the first comedians to use observations of everyday life and put that into comedy

    Doddie Weir. The courage and inspiration he has shown while dealing with MND, and helping to grow awareness to the horrific disease.

  15. Yes, nudge nudge.

    That is a disgraceful thing to day about a man who is not just dead, but also, after a year long dedicated search by Wiltshire police, not a scrap of evidence apart from one serial fraudster who is under investigation now for lying in dozens of cases. Not before many good people have been besmirched, hopefully he will go to jail for a long time
