John Hume, an architect of the Northern Ireland Peace process, has died. A somber day for Ireland, the UK and America.

He will be much missed.

A fair few from that time could have learned much from a man as principled and decent as John Hume.

A fair few running about now could do the same.

Despite decades-long attempts to smear and discredit him Hume has been perhaps the most universally respected politician in the long sad history of this island. His achievements were legion  (bringing credit unions to Ireland alone would be enough for most), but if the reality-shattering impact of his unswerving morality and relentlessly-espoused philosophy is ever doubted, reflect on the completely inconceivable image below.

"I will talk to anyone". Never forget.

Old age is the Lord’s way of telling us to step aside for something new. Death’s in case we didn’t take the hint.

The pen is mightier than the sword if the sword is very short, and the pen is very sharp.

RIP Chadwick. Shocking news, and another kick in the balls from a shitty year.

There's no right age to die, but Chadwick appears to have left us far to young. What might have been, but he did star in some of the most successful films of recent times, immortalised in celluloid forever. Regrettable news.

That's absolutely shocking. I watched Da 5 Bloods recently and it's hard not to apply some retrospective significance to his role in that this morning.

Always a shock when someone younger than you passes.

That's a real shame.
