    Default RIP Sir Roger Scruton

    Not a familiar name to most, but the philosopher and author Sir Roger Scruton has died of cancer at the age of 75 - not to be confused with Roger "Feedback" Bolton.

    I have to admit that I found the programmes he presented on BBC Radio 4 such as A Point of View (not Points of View) and the subjects that he spoken about very insightful and interesting - I have found him to be such a good communicator when it came to his observations on life and conservatism, and he was a great social commentator.

    I know that the name and person doesn't mean much to most people, but I did find him very fascinating at times.
    Telling it almost exactly like it was so many years later - and proud of doing so!

    I was shocked when I heard he had passed away. Yes, agreed that he was a thoughtful, intelligent speaker, who presented his viewpoint in a clear, methodical manner. RIP.
