Just read this post from Rich's blog (One of the blogs of fellow CF people I follow in the sidebar on the left) and (to put it mildly) it doesn't look good. Rich was one of those "call a spade a spade" people who seemed to have a really ascerbic, black, (and quintessentially British), sense of humour with absolutely no regards to the politically correct. However, he was never rascist and quite often he was really bloody funny. He used to post on the CF Forum as Roger Red Hat.
RIP mate and thanks for the nice post about City.
