I can't help thinking he would have had a wry comment to make about the
Daily Star's subhead
"COMEDIAN Jeremy Hardy has died at 57-year's-old leaving behind his
daughter."

This, from The Evening Harold (a satirical social media presence m'lud -
I've just discovered they also have a website http://eveningharold.com/)

"We are deeply saddened by the loss of the great Jeremy Hardy at the tender
age of just 57.

The great-grandson of Hollywood legend Oliver Hardy he was renowned for his
cutting satirical comedy which was strongly influenced by his socialist
political views.

This led to him becoming known as the UK's foremost commie-dian.

A regular on radio panel shows such as The News Quiz and I'm Sorry, I
Haven't a Clue, Perrier award winner Jeremy's great humour, wit and
repartee made him a much loved and respected bloke among his audience and
comedical peers alike.

Never afraid to court controversy however, JH once got banned from Burnley
for suggesting that BNP members and supporters should be shot. Sounds quite
reasonable really, but still it upset a few racist nutters and made the
news.

Likewise in his last Guardian column entry he wrote "Frankly, I do not see
my job as keeping our rulers on their toes; I’d rather see them hanging by
their feet."

In these troubled times when satire is nigh on impossible due to the innate
silliness of the people 'in charge' who satirise themselves with every word
and gesture, we now more than ever need the likes of Jeremy Hardy to show
us that fun can still be poked at the seemingly unpokable and that funny
folk can be trusted to tackle the most serious of issues."

Surely this is an occasion that could be marked by the Umra Tone Deaf

The Umbrellas of Cherbourg ?

Oh, Jeremy Hardy ?

Politics not to my taste, but he could be very funny. RIP.

The Umbrellas of Cherbourg ?
I read that, wondered how it went (title familiar, but not song) and Radio4
played it (I have heard the tune).
Spooky!

"I will wait for you" has been played a few times since Michel Legrand
died last week. I wept buckets when I saw the film when it first came
out - I wonder if I would find it so affecting now.

Oh, nugger. Octuple nugger, in fact. I knew he was being treated but
the last I heard (just before Christmas) he was doing OK.

I'm really sad that he's died. I thought he was really funny and IMO
the best News Quizzes were when it was him, Andy Hamilton, Linda Smith
and Alan Coren. I only met him briefly a few times, but he seemed like
a very nice man.

Nugger.

Agreed, but, oh, my, Andy Hamilton needs to take great care of himself, I've just realised :(

It would probably have been something like "That's one thing I've got in
common with David Cameron."
