Horrible news. One of our dearest loves in London has died. Michael Murphy aka Digger and Murf. He was one of the two folks who inspired me (Gavster) to write my rantings down. Michael was a great writer and loved a cause. He once wrote an article for QX on the price of drinks in gay bars compared to the next comparable straight one nearby. He hit it every bar in central London and his suspicions were right - we pay a gay tax of about 10% - tho, naturally, he never paid where he knew the barman;). There's a great obit in QX that mentions how he landed his mates in jail once by buggering up a care hire. We also witnessed his car hire skills. We were abroad and after dumping our luggage we went out and didn't see him for days. He reappeared and we asked where the car we hired was - we found it outside a venue where he'd rocked up, abandoned it, front at the kerb, doors open. Pain in the ass but he well made up for it. So, bye Michael and hugs to you. Funeral details to follow.
