Ronnie Barker RIP


Sad that Ronnie is dead. I thought Porridge was perfect and have the scripts. There's the classic line in Porridge where Fletcher, the old lag, hears a radio request show with a girl in Dundee who is trying to find a guy in Glasgow. Fletcher says " She knows he's from Glasgow and his hobbies include getting drunk and beating up lavatory attendants." He made millions laugh. When confidence ebbs and I think I haven't achieved much, a death like that makes me realise better men than me have died, but I'm still free to enjoy this great privilege of life.
