    :-( The website seems to have collapsed in shock.

    Gobsmacked. Absolute fucking shocker.
    A kiss on the cheek may be quite continental, but tactical thermonuclear weaponry is a boy's best friend.

    Announced on Sky News about 5 minutes ago. I'm shocked. Very sad news.

    Also just discovered - noticed he was trending on Twitter which caused some excitement only for it to be well and truly dashed when I read the news.

    Am absolutely gutted about the news - and for him.

    This is such sad news... I so wish that I had a means and way of communicating with Iain, if I could I would say... Please don't give up hope... Many People have cured their cancer by using Cannabis Oil, it is available in UK, hard to find but it can be done.

    Godspeed Sir
