James Bond actress Honor Blackman dies of natural causes aged 94

Honor Blackman, the British actress who played Pussy Galore in the James Bond film Goldfinger, has died at the age of 94.

In a statement, her family said she died peacefully of natural causes at home in Lewes, East Sussex.

Blackman was also known for playing Cathy Gale in the 1960s TV series The Avengers opposite Patrick Macnee.

The pair had a novelty hit with 1964's Kinky Boots, which reached the Top 10 in 1990.

Her other roles included Hera in Jason and the Argonauts and Laura West in 1990s TV series The Upper Hand.

The statement issued by Blackman's family said: "As well as being a much adored mother and grandmother, Honor was an actor of hugely prolific creative talent.

"With an extraordinary combination of beauty, brains and physical prowess, along with her unique voice and a dedicated work ethic, she achieved an unparalleled iconic status in the world of film and entertainment.

"With absolute commitment to her craft and total professionalism in all her endeavours she contributed to some of the great films and theatre productions of our times.

"We ask you to respect the privacy of our family at this difficult time."


On edit: I noted she died of natural causes as the RWers would start screaming that we’re trying to inflate the COVID numbers to make Trump look bad.

10,000 dead and this is what he is concerned about.


Dinesh D'Souza enlightens us comparing types of socialism to types of rape.

Dinesh D'Souza: “Democratic socialism differs from totalitarian socialism kind of like gang rape differs from individual rape”

DINESH D'SOUZA: In some ways, at the level of pure principle, democratic socialism differs from totalitarian socialism kind of like gang rape differs from individual rape.


In both cases, the coercion -- whether the coercion comes from one guy or a majority. Imagine you have a group of people and they all have one marble, right? And one guy has 10 marbles. So authoritarian socialism means that one guy gets to grab the guy who has 10 marbles and takes his marbles. Here's democratic socialism: a majority of the people with one marble all decide to use the same level of force, but use the fact that a majority of them have decided to confiscate the other guy's -- in both cases the other guy's deprived of his property. In one case it's done by one guy, in the other case it's done, by force, by a group, claiming the legitimacy of the majority. And that's my point is in the sense from the point of view of principle, there's no fundamental difference. There's a confiscation in both cases, there's force employed in both cases, and an injustice is done in both cases.
