The R.I.P thread

A true political giant. Opened a can of worms nobody could control in the dying USSR, but it was the right thing to do. Russia hasn’t had enough leaders like him.

Noooooooooo.

This is very sad. My girlfriend and I love him and we were so sad to see him go from BBC Breakfast. Such an iconic broadcaster and lovely chap, I had hoped he might be able to beat the cancer but alas.

I’m actually quite upset about this :confused:

My uncle died of prostate cancer years ago now and it was awful seeing him wither away like he did.

I donate to Prostate Cancer UK every month actually, as it really is a silent killer among men.

Not gonna lie, BBC Breakfast was a hard watch this morning. Basically been a walk down memory lane about Bill.

Thing about him is that you respect the journalist over the years first in him. He was pretty old school reporter first and foremost, the likable guy grew from that.
Thats the way it should be too with newscasters/journos. That is something that has started too change now. We have started on a road of minor celeb presentation sadly.
