    Last week or so... and says alot about our society that a violent nasty gangster can become a bit of a celeb ..



    The criminal and former associate of the Kray twins, "Mad" Frankie Fraser, has died aged 90 in a London hospital.



    He was known as an "enforcer", meting out violence on behalf of the Krays and the Richardson gang in the 1960s.

    By the time he left prison for the final time in 1989, Fraser had served a total of 42 years for a range of offences.

    More recently he established himself as a TV personality and published an autobiography.

    Fraser's methods of torturing the gang's victims earned him the nicknames "Mad Frankie" and "The Dentist" - he was reputed to pull out people's teeth with pliers.

    At the Richardson gang "torture" trial at the Old Bailey in 1967 he was jailed for 10 years. Two years later a further five years was added for leading a riot at Parkhust Prison.

    In 1975 he assaulted three prison officers, one of whom he

    This news had a certain poignant resonance for me personally...

    As a kid in the 1960s I would tease my cousin Hughie for his resemblance to Pugsley from the popular TV show of the time...

    Check out this picture of Pugsley (left) and Hughie (right) and you'll see what I mean...

    Mandy Rice-Davies, has died aged 70.
    Along with Christine Keeler, she was instrumental in rocking the very foundations of 'the establishment' in the sixties due to her part in The Profumo Affair'.

    She was responsible for one of the best-known quotations of modern times: “He would, wouldn’t he?”, which came when she was asked in court whether she knew that Lord Astor had denied having sex with her.

    RIP Mandy.
