Sad news. The always entertaining John Mortimer has died.

One of a kind.

Wit, grit, Rumpole and countless bottles of wine.

Thanks for the laughs, your dedication to free speech and the fights to preserve it, that voyage round your dad, and a number of books on my shelves.

Cheers. (Glass raised.)
