    Red, I know you've had a rotten term, but it's holidays. Kick back, open a bottle and relax.

    The sure fire antidote to Tarby is (of course) a goodly dose of Ben Elton:

    Maybe, maybe not - but where is this coming from? What inspired this pearl of wisdom?
    I/we need a bit more background information to understand your reasoning.

    This recent bout of extreme irritability reminds me of my husband's depression.

    Jimmy Tarbouk was,in his day, one of the finest Northern comedians around. You suprise me with your comments and i am intersted how you came to the conclusion. One of the great problems these days is we suffer many who are not what i term good commediansbut enjoy taking fun of others,

    Can I remind you of something you wrote a few days ago:

    Yes thank you and don’t play god with me ok...
    This man is really a chit.

    Just can’t take the man. Ask people on Merseyside what they think of him. We have tow guys from there at our place and they can never forgive him for supporting Thatcher.

    When I saw the title of this thread, I assumed Tarby had died and not in the stand-up comedy sense.

    My favourite current comedians are Mark Steel, Tim Vine and Frankie Boyle. I never did take to Tarbuck - an inferior copy of Les Dawson. Does he still own the E-Type Jag with the COM1C plate?

    I never found him particularly funny but I like his daughter, Liza.

    Trouble is, Red old friend, the more time you spend focusing on and criticising others, however much they may deserve it, the less you will have for recognising and acknowledging those who deserve that too. And actually enjoying life.

    There a lot to be said for trying to make the world better but, at the same time, trying to be at peace with it.

    Seeing those I care for getting bitter, twisted and profoundly unhappy through their own political hatred does distress me.

    IMO, of course.

    What sort of 'offender' is Jimmy Tarbuck then?

    nomad Star commenter

    He isn't, at least not in law. He was just one of the multitude of celebrities arrested and then released without charge over child abuse accusations. Others included Dave Lee Travis, Paul Gambacini, etc. Personally I think the reference to this in the OP is too near the knuckle.
