...seems a bit harsh chaps.

Let's get back to chinwagging about the ever-present spectre of death shall we?

Goaty, he is basically Northern Ireland's very own George Galloway: he has his supporters, but the rest of the population has varying opinions.  In recent years, his public profile has changed from his mid-80s image of a dangerous and bigoted crackpot to that of a harmless old grandpa who you hope doesn't spoil things at dinner by saying anything to your non-white girlfriend.

Big Ian.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-northern-ireland-29177705

Sorry but is it true that no-one like him?

He was a hate-filled bully, bottomless source of dishonest manipulative bigotry (just read his writings on Irish history) and a spittle-flecked bogeyman for many on this island for many decades, but by all accounts he was a tireless advocate for his constituents, and his latter political work was commendable.  An embodied contradiction, like all of us.

John Bardon. Jim in Eastenders recently, but always the dodgy head of the wayward Timson clan in Rumpole of the Bailey for me, and immensely watchable across the years.

RIP.

I regularly rewatch Rumpole.
He was great :-(
An old-school, no-bullshit, boys-own action/adventure comic reminiscent of the 2000ads and Eagles and Warlords and Battles and other glorious black-and-white comics that were so, so cool in the 70's and 80's - Buy the hardback Christmas Annual!

TB speaks the truth. I have personal knowledge of this fact. I despised the man's politics, but as a constituency MP, he was, I have no fear of saying, the very best there was. 
I have also heard first hand from others, people Paisley would have gleefully condemned to hell, who had nothing by praise for his work as a local MP.
A man of contradictions, indeed.

He was a hate-filled bully, bottomless source of dishonest manipulative bigotry (just read his writings on Irish history) and a spittle-flecked bogeyman for many on this island for many decades, but by all accounts he was a tireless advocate for his constituents, and his latter political work was commendable.  An embodied contradiction, like all of us.
