Scotland were playing Belarus in a qualifier and there was a big stushy about it being played on the day of Diana's funeral. McCoist and Goram refused to play. 

The game eventually got shifted to the Sunday. Not sure if it was on TV becuase I was in the ultimate hell of being a wee guy getting dragged round furniture shops with my parents during the game. 

My gran also banned me from playing outside during the funeral so when you combine that with the previous 5 weekdays of no Neighbours on TV it was a really challenging week for me. 

All the above is true, however bear in mind Diana died on Sunday 31st August.

On Monday 1st September the Old Firm were due to meet at Celtic Park. That game got canned. It was eventually played in November (1-1, Marco Negri for Sevco's parent and a last minute equaliser from Alan Stubbs).

Did someone else not die really close to her? Mother Teresa maybe?

Yes she did, I flew out on holiday the day after the crash & remember reading about Mother Teresa during it.

Good grief. Hard times for the Donald since his wholesale cancellation back in January.

They were honestly doing that after the first half hour.

I lost interest during about the 4th loop.

Aye it is the worst. They knew the c**t was dying for years but are on a fucking loop like Sky Sports News.

Get proper TV back on and stick that pish on the news channels.

He'll be buried face down just in case he's not dead, if he digs himself out he'll be Australia's fucking problem.

I see the BBC News presenter was choking up earlier.  We've laughed at the old lady in North Korea for much the same.

I thought I was imagining that.

Thread is moving faster than, well, an SUV crashing into a vehicle carrying three people (including a 9-month-old boy) right now so question may already have been asked and/or answered; am I right in thinking that he

  • didn't apologise for a pretty remarkably long time after the collision (accident implies that there wasn't someone to blame)
  • that replacement SUV he got within 24/48 hours was pretty fucking expensive, something like £60k - £80k
  • I can't remember but I think they did - eventually - also replace the victims car even if only because at a cynical level they realised how awful it looked to give the doddery twat another toy to break without also helping out the victim
  • when there was finally an official apology it was one of those mealy mouthed "i'm sorry if you feel upset that I smashed my vehicle into yours" deals

Poor guy.  Just a few weeks short of getting a telegram from his wife.  Sometimes it just plain bad luck.

I'm actually pretty comfortable with this blanket sycophancy, it's yet another example of the growing desperation of the UK establishment to keep the monarchy relevant when they must know that force feeding this guff to an increasingly disaffected and divided nation will only hasten their demise.  Witness the crowbarring of William and Kate into the Covid situation; two gilded parasites with nothing of purpose to contribute.  When the Queen passes the Glass Palace begins to crack.  Make it happen.

Not even our Dear Leader.

Getting choked up about the lifetime assistant to the Dear Leader kicking the bucket is another level of sycophantism.

BBC already repeating the same interviews to fill time. 

We used to laugh at Radio Moscow having hours on end of sombre music every time a Soviet leader popped his clogs.

DMX has also died today. A man who made a lot of homophobic remarks. I can't wait to see Twitter do a 180.
