Robert Stigwood - RIP

Recommended Posts

Probably totally unheard of to current generations he was arguably much more significant to UK (and indeed World) popular culture than the celebrated Brian Epstein, had a much longer run, and covered a far "broader range".  He was also a bit of a character, of the sort that would have been highly un-PC these grey days.

 

Telstar: The Joe Meek Story was shown on TV over the holiday period, so he was already on my mind when the sad news broke.

I agree with your comments about his leading role in the culture of Blighty and beyond.  Yep, they're dropping like flies!

      Police are investigating a Bedlington care home where inspectors say some elderly residents weren't kept safe.
      Medicines had allegedly gone missing at Baedling Manor Care Home, while the local authority was called in to monitor the home's safeguarding arrangements.
      The home's 49 residents "did not always experience safe care and treatment", inspectors from the Care Quality Commission (CQC) said.
      The CQC said it had launched an inspection after being contacted with concerns about "safeguarding people, staffing, recruitment, medicines, infection control, consent, complaints and the governance of the service".
      Downgrading the home, run by Alcyone Healthcare, from 'Good' to 'Requires Improvement', the report said: "People were not always safeguarded from the risk of harm. Incidents were not reported or recorded properly, and action was not always taken to address matters.
      "The home was placed into organisational safeguarding by the local authority and there were police investigations in progress."
