Saw the play Margaret Murder and Me tonight
at 00:27 12 Nov 2019

It's about actress Margaret Rutherford and Agatha Christie.

Margaret's background and early life is, to put it mildly, so implausible it would rejected as a Hollyoaks plot.

Her father had a nervous breakdown a month after he married. After a spell in a lunatic asylum (we're talking Victorian England, so that's what it would have been), he was discharged. He promptly bludgeoned his own father - a minister in the Congregationalist Church - to death with a chamberpot.

He was determined too mad to stand trial and went to Broadmoor. On his discharge seven years later (1890) he was reunited with his wife. Margaret Rutherford was born two years later.

The family moved to India to start afresh. Margaret's mother became pregnant, and promptly hanged herself. Margaret (aged three) was sent back to be brought up by her aunt, and was told later that her father had died in India of a broken heart.

He hadn't. He also returned to England, and gone back into Broadmoor, where he remained until his death in 1921.

Margaret had herself regularly treated with ECT in a sanatorium, fearful of falling victim to mental problems herself.

Oh, and just to round the story off, she and her husband didn't have children, but unofficially adopted a young writer called Gordon Langley Hall when Hall was in his twenties. Hall went on to write a biography of Margaret Rutherford....but only after he'd had gender reassignment surgery and become Dawn Langley Simmonds.

jrm's next speech leaked
at 16:41 6 Nov 2019

"Today, institutions fundamental to the British system of Government are under attack
the public schools, the house of Lords, the Church of England, the holy institution of Marriage, even our magnificent police force are no longer safe from those who would undermine our society, and it's about time we said 'enough is enough' and saw a return to the traditional British values of discipline, obedience, morality and freedom.
What we want is
Freedom from the reds and the blacks and the criminals
Prostitutes, pansies and punks
Football hooligans, juvenile delinquents
Lesbians and left wing scum
Freedom from the n1ggers and the Pak!s and the unions
Freedom from the Gipsies and the Jews
Freedom from leftwing layabouts and liberals
Freedom from the likes of you"
