My Diary Entry from June 2014

Earlier in the week Rik Mayall died. Its affected a lot of people. Many people my age grew up with Rik on the world stage, strutting his stuff. It was magnificent, and a triumph of what seemed like meager protest in the wake of Margaret Thatcher and Thatcherism

But it was magnificent none the less. I used to love Rik's out-there humour and always looked forward to the Young Ones coming on. His passing has touched a lot of people. Apparently he had a quad bike accident on his farm in Devon, and according to Friends was never the same again. Rest in peace dear Friend.
