Sad to see another great British sporting hero has passed away today. I still think it’s incredible that the man ran essentially as a hobby. Parkinson’s is terrible.

A genuine sporting legend. RIP.

Communism deprives no man of the power to appropriate the products of society; all that it does is to deprive him of the power to subjugate the labour of others by means of such appropriations.

With all the bollocks and sheer greed flying around at the moment. It was nice to here some sincerity from people that knew him and what he was about.
Sad news indeed. R.I.P Roger.
