Very sad news, Nicholas Parsons must have been one of the longest-serving Radio Presenters and was an excellent entertainer. 

Film & TV / Re: Patrick Stewart back as Picard in new series

I enjoyed it, looked very similar to Discovery SFX wise though Picard does rely on dream sequences and 'news' flashbacks which some might see as sluggish. The usual Moop troops get there ass kicked trope is here, but the fights themselves were well staged. The final reveal was a shocker, and I'll be watching next Friday's for more Picard excitement!

Poor Terry Jones I'm afraid his dementia became very advanced. A magnificent artistic talent, a great Writer, Comedian and Director. :(

Well, a spooky if an enjoyable return for the Doctor and an arch-nemesis. How will they survive the old crashing plane I've no idea but I'll be watching on Sunday to find out.

Really interesting article, thanks.

Yes, have to agree, that was both chilling and rather grim in its predictions about asset stripping the seabed.

One Labour Guy quoted in the Times said he believed that the Tories would be in power for the next twenty years. Rather a grim thought, but it certainly is a possibility if this election is anything to go by. The 'Save our NHS' campaign the Labour Party endorsed appeared to make little impact on an election dominated by Brexit. One world slides out of view replaced by a more disjointed, national based world order. I was reading John Gray's 'On Humans and Other Animals', and it was full of dire predictions on how humans don't learn from the past, are arbitrary in their thinking and not logical or rational at all. Human Progress, Gray asserts it is a myth, and you can't help thinking there might be something in that after recent events.

Ah, all things must end, and the UK has fulfilled its purpose. The Anglosphere is a pretty successful enterprise despite its shortcomings, so you have to learn to let things go. The break up looks increasingly likely since the ties that once bound us, hold no more. Scotland, Ireland, England and Wales will have separate fates as National identity becomes more prevalent and virulent. That's just history; the Balkans collapsed after the end of the cold war, and with the post, cold war consensus shot to shit it's our turn now.

You could argue the North of England, who lost many Industries like Shipping and Coal to the first wave of Thatcherite Neo-Liberal Freemarketeers has finally got their revenge upon the globalists. Quite a way to go about it, so we'll have to understand that we'll be leaving the eurozone sooner, rather than later. Nationalism I suspect has been the winner here, both in England and Scotland. Gas-Putin must be rubbing his hands with glee at a weakened E.U. All left-leaning Parties appeared to have recieved a mauling by the electorate, but that's the way it went. Not much to be happy about Brexit looks now unstoppable.

Roxette singer Marie Fredriksson has died. The Grim Reaper has it in for the entertainment world it seems.
