Ned Sherrin is no longer for rent

Two early obits of Ned Sherrin who has unloosened his ends at 76:

"He confessed rather engagingly that he used rent boys for sex because he didn't want to exploit young actors who might sleep with him in the hope of getting a part."
Telegraph

"But even his best friends were surprised when, just after he received his CBE in 1997, he published a diary in which he confessed that he used rent boys for sex contacted through gay magazine ads."
Mail

He confessed to his rent boy usage in Sherrin's Year (1996 - the Mail has got a bit confused date-wise) because he had received blackmail letters - hopefully not from the News of the World or any of those other disgusting tabloid newspapers which are edited by Christians and thrive on blackmail or illegal surveillance. That aside, I found Sherrin socially to be rather a miserable old bitch – like most satirists it must be said. Ever tried a conversation with Richard Ingrams? Serenading a steaming camel's turd in the middle of the Sahara would be more stimulating. One hopes, that unshackled from his dull earthly world and throat cancer, Sherrin can enjoy good long fucks in heaven as the gods congratulate themselves on the ingenuity of their sexual inventions.

"Labels: Ian Halperin, Kevin Spacey, Ned Sherrin, Richard Ingram"

I suppose Spacey should be grateful to you for not having labelled him below the goat-fucking item.
As for your new poll, frankly, I rather expected something related to his meeting with Chavez – although no Spacey at all would have been the wisest choice by far. Would I take part in that sort of bullsh*t, I think I'd click on "sexless", which I guess is the nearest equivalent of GFY.

Rest in peace, Ned Sherrin.

British readers are not interested in Chavez - they probably think it's the Spanish for chav.

I would have voted, but I didn't see "None of my fucking business" listed.

And the pre-selected possibilities are so poor and reveal such a lack of imagination ! How about autosexual, metrosexual, humansexual, pansexual, omnisexual ? You really should inform yourself, chérie ! :-)

Humansexual? Why, do you think Spacey's into goats? Actually, that's given me an idea ...

Otherwise, just vote, bitches.

The point is not whether he (or whoever else) is into this or that, but what YOU are into, darling.

< Actually, that's given me an idea ... >

Shouldn't we all be bleating with curiosity? :->

Well, since you put it THAT way..... Honestly Madame, your charm just amazes me. ;)

> British readers are not interested in Chavez

Wake up, carissima, you're on the internet: your readership is international and multicultural.
Davvero (really), that incurable British insular mentality will always bewilder me...

You are the idealist, I the realist. You say ought, I say is. I was asked why Spacey's din-dins with Chavez hardly got any mention in the UK media while the neo-cons in the US went crazy. Britain's virtual indifference to Chavez is a fact while Bush's loathing of Chavez is too a fact. So, my "British insularity" here is your invention arising from your failure to follow the narrative line - do try to keep up Lorenzo or I'll rub your face in Paul Newman's pasta tomato sauce.

Otherwise you are quite right to pay tribute to the multi-cultural appeal of this site. My blessings to Italia - how's old Papa Ratzi these days? - I do wish he would remove that awful negro stereotyped image on his coat of arms. He too must try to keep up.
