Once or twice the old gobshite raised a giggle.....
Sadly, MacP died at the start of the summer, after an illness.
If you check the scs archive in Google, you'll find the messages
people posted at the time.
Thank you for that information. I found the thread and read it. I
think he is a very sad loss and that he died too young.
I will never forget his satire on Wotan who pre-deceased him.
He left scs under unfortunate circumstances, he got rather brittle but
told no-one here about what he was facing. Now we know he had every
right to be brittle what with his own mortality staring him in the eye.

Something to reflect on and probably not
only in bereavement.
It is good that his daughter was in touch and I
hope his family has come some way to terms
with their loss. It's early days.
I agree with all comments. It didn't matter to me if I agreed with his
specific views, I always felt I was 'on his side' because he had great
humanity, infinite humour, and was a really literate, cultured man,
not to mention that he wrote very well. If he insulted someone I
always felt they should feel complimented.
Does anyone know or has anyone written up any information
about his life? I'm a strong believer in privacy in open forums for
the simple reason that the world is full of nutters, twats, and people
you don't around (that's a sad simple reality), but that can probably
safely be relaxed a bit after death?!
