I won't put this one in the celebrity deaths as this creature was far from being one of those.

I'm looking forward to seeing the programme.

My mother always voted Liberal and, at the time when Jeremy Thorpe was the leader, she was a member of the local Liberal Party's women's group. I don't think that they did much other than gossip and drink tea though! 

There were comments on Jeremy's rather surprise marriage in 1968 but I don't think that anyone ever suspected that it could have been for political reasons, to create a more favourable image.

P.S. Here's the i-player link.

It's got good reviews.....


A Very English Scandal episode one review: Hugh Grant is superb in absurdly entertaining drama



Hugh Grant and Ben Whishaw prove an unmissable duo in A Very English Scandal, the new comedy drama which charts Liberal leader Jeremy Thorpe’s political downfall. Based on the ‘non-fiction’ novel by John Preston, A Very English Scandal spins a true story of political manoeuvring, forbidden affairs and alleged murder conspiracies through a comedic eye. This is amplified by screenwriter Russell T Davies, whose past work on Queer As Folk and the recent Cucumber trilogy blares loud through this witty, hilarious script. We’re introduced to Thorpe (Hugh Grant) sitting down with MP Peter Bessell (Alex Jennings) talking in code about their illegal flings with men. Before we’re given chance to gawp over Hugh Grant’s incredible aged make-up, we’re whisked across Thorpe’s keen-eyed first meeting with Norman (Ben Whishaw) as he cavorts around horse stables like a tame 70s porno. Hugh Grant as Jeremy Thorpe (Picture: BBC)This first engagement sets in motion a fleeting romance which soon spirals into bitterness, with Norman walking out in frustration. While Thorpe assumes he’s swept under the carpet, Norman isn’t quite ready to forget, creeping back into the MP’s family life and threatening to be a nuisance until he’s given a National Insurance card which will allow him to work and, essentially, survive. Its surprisingly jovial tone has rubbed some of the show’s subjects the wrong way, with the real Norman Scott not seeing the funny side of, what he states, is a story about ‘the total destruction of a person’

Some of the killers in U K prisons who will never be freed. Dennis Nilsen has of course recently died.
