I’m only just learning that Angela Lansbury (Jessica Fletcher) is the granddaughter of George Lansbury. This changes everything.

*Wow, an article about Yugoslav “spomeniki” monuments that actually explains who built them and why, instead of continually freaking-out about how alien and goofy they seem nowadays.

does no one realize that robin hood was a terrible role model for young kids? i mean you are stealing from people (illegal) and those people (usually) worked hard to get their wealth. it really demotivates people to succeed when they know they can get something someone else worked for.

is this what rich people worry about lmao

who knew the sheriff of nottingham had a blog

Grabbed these from a neat little shop on ebay. A shed load of old Yugoslav banknotes from the 80s/90s. 

There’s a really cool one with Nikola Tesla on it. Another with Alija Sirotanović on but my favourite is the 1 Billion Dinars.

It was an emotional day for sure. It was obvious all of the crowd were there to mourn and say goodbye, but also to remember his life. The atmosphere was incredible. 

Dennis Skinner and Ken Livingstone got loud cheers as they arrived. Dennis made the effort to shake hands with the crowd and thank them for coming - which I thought was wonderful. So I got to say goodbye to Tony and shake hands with Dennis.

Tony’s brother and children gave fantastic speeches which had all of us outside crying and laughing at the same time. It was a fantastic send off fit for a hero.

An amazing, emotional day, which I will never forget.

We sung the Red Flag as the coffin came out. The crowd was at least 8 rows deep. It was incredible.

So glad I had the chance to say a proper goodbye to Tony.

I’ll post more later; I’m off to have a cup of tea in his honour.
