The beleaguered residents of the war-torn town of Aleppo are to hold a minutes silence later today as a mark of respect for Manuel out of the popular comedy show, Fawlty Towers, who died yesterday from being very old.
We spoke to one man as he crawled from the rubble of his home following a Russian airstrike that had just wiped out his wife and children, “I was pretty cut up when the Russians took out the wife and kids just now, but this news that Manuel out of Fawlty Towers has died at a ripe old age has come as a real hammer blow.
“It’s only decent that those of us who haven’t yet been blown apart by Russian bombers should hold a minutes silence to pay our respects”
We spoke to a Kremlin representative last night, who told us: “A minutes silence eh? Well, we’ll just have to see about that won’t we comrade”
