    He was beautiful when he was young. Did you intentionally write a click-bait style headline, modelmaker? I immediately thought of David Cameron.

    It did occur to me that a clickbait headline might make people think David Cameron rather than Earl Cameron had died, but I was interested to see what the responses were and whether black deaths matter as much as the death of a white politician.

    Indeed. Getting the first major role for a black actor in a British mainstream film was a significant achievement in itself.

    I doubt Earl would consider this a worthy tribute.

    Turning a man's death into a little test for others to pass or fail to satisfy your curiosity is a little disrespectful.

    You then went on to respond.

    Several people did. Interestingly you decided not to in your opening post then you criticize people who decided not to.

    This thread was never about Earl Cameron. You were laying trap for people

    I'm interested in the fact that the "likes" received to certain responses are all from the usual right-wing posters, which just goes to show that MM is correct as usual.

    well one had some influence over my actual day to day life, and the other I have never heard of, so what is your point?

    One controlled aspects of my day to day existance. The other might have worked harder, I don't know. I've never heard of most people who work hard, neither have you.

    Again, what is supposed to be your point?

    It proves nothing.

    Many posters agree on various subjects. That does not prove they are right or wrong it is merely evidence if agreement.

    Your post could be turned around to read:

    I'm interested in the fact that the agreement to certain responses are all from the usual left-wing posters, which just goes to show that MM is incorrect as usual.

    That would be just as pointless a statement.

    We saw him often in our local cafe. He'd come in and meet friends with his wife then quietly fall asleep.
