He was a truly talented comedian. The New Statesman was one of my all time favourite comedies.

Absolutely... the problem with the New Statesman is that it turned out to be a documentary! Very sad news.

Absolutely gutted, can't believe it.

Not always a fan of his work, but his genius cannot be denied.
New Statesman was a classic.

Genius, and the secular patron saint of comedy for anyone born in the 80s.

Ruff!

The Old Ones, in short.

The news is both shocking and sad, I am sorry that Kevin Turvey can't investigate it for us.

Did God kill him then, the news didn't say anything about that. Well if Rik Mayall has to die to prove to all these atheists that God is real, then it was a noble sacrifice...

Or perhaps God didn't have much to do with it?

What a sad excuse for a post!

Actually I agree with WDB here. If anyone dies - what God has to do with it? Or you may go on about RM being given 16 "extra" years after his accident. Or yet something. Anyone may think of anything to say... but people just die, sometimes. Actually, always.

Hence I tend to agree with WDB's: "Or perhaps God didn't have much to do with it?"

Thanks for the support. I suspect that Spin is being polemical.

It is nevertheless a sad event. The Young Ones is a major part of my youth.

Looks like Paul D's got back in touch with his inner botvoter...

I think Spin was just being Spin.

Every death is a sad event, be it personally sad or culturally sad. My condolences to all Rik Mayall's fans.

One may waste their time whinging why the cruel God forces us to die. I feel pretty sure that if we lived forever, some would be wasting their eternity whinging why the cruel God forces us to live forever.

Or else you may enjoy what you have whilst being alive and make the best of it. Just take your pick...

I think that is called hell :)

Are you saying that either your heading or your OP are really questions? They don't appear to be phrased like that.

So these aren't the perennial questions you mentioned, but the perennial statements.
