He definitely is handsome (or was).
(Maybe I should have read  up on him in Wikipedia  Shocked)
So....it's a lovely picture of a couple.  Wink

I never like the death of any one but I shed no crocodile tears where the royal family is involved.
Over privileged, over payed by our taxes and as for distant relative hangers on..........

Sad indeed, no doubt there will be memorials, statues and whistle blowers dragging up the past fro many years to come, lets face it the Diana thing has never ended and is constantly ongoing  Roll Eyes

suffice to say YAWN..........Our current Royals have turned into a soap opera, only fit for the front page of tabloids, seriously I don't give a jot, one way or another.

So, may the racist philanderer rest in peace.

He was 99 and had the best healthcare the world can offer - why is everyone so stunned and shocked that he died? And the minute he died he suddenly becomes the best bloke the world has ever seen, when all I have ever read about him was how rude and careless he was (that woman he hit with his car and sent to hospital who he never acknowledged because, lets face it, she was just a peasant in his eyes). He loved his wife so much he bonked any other woman he fancied (??) then laughed about it with his son. Lovely way to treat women and to teach his son how to treat them. He's lucky he wasn't a Jewish film director...

I don't think that it is so much that people are shocked that at 99 he, or any other celebrity, died per se.
I think it more that the news of it starts one thinking [something] along the lines of: Wow... 99! That's a long time. I remember when I first heard of him/her and I was (some age). And now I'm (this old).  Time flies.

And then---if you are of a certain age, or older, you start thinking about yourself getting older, and (even if you are in relatively good health) your own inevitable death.
And believe me, you don't have to be really old for those thoughts to start occurring every time you hear of someone dying, whether you know them personally or only know of him/her via the media.

It's one of those existential moments that we all have whenever we experience a very human event.

Thank you. As unpopular as it is to say it, it's the age old malady of fallen human nature. And no one is immune to it. No one.

 His name was known in NZ. His 1st wife Susan Renouf enjoyed a certain notoriety also. He was a long serving politician, who will have influenced both Aus and NZ politics

To me he is a icon of failure and the upper class. The only connection I ever had was that we both had the same dentist. For all of the above reasons, I would prefer to forget him.

Not my favourite, either, but worth a mention, I feel. I used to live in the same electorate as Gough Whitlam - much more my style!
