Only one Ronnie

Ronnie Barker, a very British comic genius died today.
The English laughing world will be saddened by the loss of this great man who played parts as varied as the comic prisoner Fletcher in the TV series 'Porridge', miserly shopkeeper Arkwright in the popular comedy, 'Open All Hours' and later, Inches, the long suffering Butler to Churchill, in the drama ' The Gathering Storm'. The latter proved to be hugely successful, both sides of the Atlantic.
