Our Cilla's Gone!

Just heard the news that Cilla Black has died,in Spain! A great entertainer, who, though not my particular thing, was much more genuine, that many give her credit for!
                                          R.I.P. Girl.

Actually sherryman...a hell of lot of the people who used call her, and I quote;  a 'plazzy scouser', 'a two faced tory' and went on and on how she turned her back on Liverpool like Jimmy Tarbuck etc not to mention how she never visited here or her mum,  have now all said how sorry they are and how the 'wonderful Liverpool legend will be sorely missed'....etc...etc.... Shocked


I can't fathom people out! Rolling Eyes

Mind you, i am referring to the people in the Scouse groups on....wait for it.....yesss....Facebook.    Confused
MOJO

That's 'cause a lot of them talk a load of unadulterated s***e!
                                                                                         Everyone who leaves this city, whatever they do,  is some sort of traitor......according to them! And no, I'm not a particular fan,of Cilla, but the envious, malicious, crap people come out with, about anyone (it seems) who does well from here, makes me embarrassed, if not ashamed to come from Liverpool, but thank god, we're not all like that.............are we???
Barbie

People,  can go think and say what they like, they're entitled to their opinions whether I agree or not with them. I'm entitled to mine and do not expect anybody to have to agree with me. That is the beauty of a free country.

What my point was, how can they spout a load of hatred and then the minute that person dies they can 'grieve' and talk about that same person in a loving way?

If I don't like someone when they live, then I wont like them when the pass over. I hope people dont suffer and pass peacefully, but I can't suddenly love someone that I didn't before.
I can't do with two faced people.

Sherryman I would say that for every person who didn't like her, there were ten who did and that amounts to a lorra lorra people!

RIP to  lovely Cilla who really did put Liverpool on the map!

What a shock!

Rest in Peace Cilla, you were a star!

Not too sure about your figures there Valencia and although to a certain extent it could possibly be claimed that Cilla's Fame did reflect well on the City. Liverpool had ,for at least a Century and a Half been well and truly already on the Map. We were the Second City of The Empire long long before Cilla, the Beatles or any other Pop group ever sung a note .

just sayin like !  Wink

Possibly Sherryman?  She was the Queen of Liverpool and was loved worldwide.

I don't believe for one minute that she never visited her mother.  Who the hell made that up!!

Also it was up to her if she voted Tory, many scousers do!

Another bone of contention is that she left Liverpool.  Why not, many would if they could.

By the way Sherryman, who did put Liverpool on the map?
Barbie

Valencia, sherryman didn't say any of that stuff about her, all that is in my post about what other people on facebook were saying, but now aren't because she has died. I have witnessed arguments galore in different groups on facebook about her to the point where the admin deleted the thread. I was saying that these same people are now saying how they loved her, how great she was etc....

As i said, I can't fathom people out!

You have got to be joking!?
After WW2. Liverpool lost nearly half of it's population, mainly because we were no longer the 2nd city of anywhere, and the city was dying on it's feet, hence the government efforts to encourage new industry to the area, in the late 50's,early 60's, which have since, almost disappeared! To get on, you had to get out, which they did, in droves!
Thankfully, things have now begun to turn around, (Liverpool docks dealing with more tonnage than they ever did) the place is a much more positive place to be, and the population is growing (slightly) again!
As for the influence of the likes of Cilla Black,the beatles, etc on Liverpool's reputation, whatever you think of these people, the impression they have helped create to the world at large, has certainly helped in a hugely positive way, the effect growing, as time passes, illustrated by our thriving tourist industry! They don't come to look at container ships!
Barbie

Ah well, the fights and arguments all kicked off about Cilla and her roots etc. (Facebook)
Can't believe how nasty and not to mention childish they all are to each other.

Why can't adults ever accept that not everyone has an opinion the same as themselves? Pretty boring place if everyone thought the same.

Just because your opinion differs does not make you right and them wrong, and vise versa....should learn to accept others point of view.

I'm so glad I never said a word, watching all those people making asses of themselves was quite amusing really.

So glad I am not a part of any of it.
MOJO

It's not the fact (for most) that someone has a different opinion, it's more the way it's expressed, and if it's justifiable, that can, cause the animosity!
Though I haven't seen, or taken much interest in what's being said over the last few days,the stuff I have seen, has certainly brought out extremes in people's attitudes...............interesting, really! Confused

I posted this photo last night, I took the pic myself yesterday.




People just posted underneath it: person 1: Oh dear, a picture speaks a thousand words
Person 2: I thought she was a blue? Flowers are tacky.

I aksed person no.1 what words did the photo speak to her and she replied, well not exactly Princess Di is it?
I told no.2 if she was a blue does it mean LFC fans can't mourn her?

I've had more to say.....including that it was a good job those flowers were not off me.......
Cool

Hi Mojo.
I hear what you are saying but
No I wasnt Joking.  I did in fact state that Liverpool was already firmly placed on the Map at least 150 years before Cilla . In that I was explaining to Valencia how The Commerce of the Port as it grew rapidly from the early 1800s made Liverpool such an immensley important City Worldwide, and that it therefore was incorrect of her to state that it was Cilla, The Beatles or any other musical group who put Liverpool on the Map.

Will you join me in a glass of sherry!  q37

I think that Liverpool was first put on the map by King John but from a celebrity point of view who was the first famous scouser maybe from the 19th century.
MOJO

Hi S,
I wasn't disputing Liverpools' former glories, but the fact that the place has been dying, relatively, for many years, and was certainly "on the map", but for all the wrong reasons, and this was before any political idea's on "managed decline" in the 70's/80's!
I can understand your point about there being more to Liverpool, than the Beatles, etc, and of course, there is, but these days, right or wrong, image is all, and they, and their fellow entertainers, do for the city, what could be said, is a disproportionate amount of good!
Everywhere I've been, people know the Beatles, are from Liverpool, and along with the footy teams, are the best free advertising you could ask for, and now, we're delivering the goods!!

This is a post made on a Bootle site, by an ex-pat who hasn't been home for 60yrs! Says it all, to me!


Proud of Liverpool
Post by Ernie Jackson. (Bunty) Sat Aug 01, 2015 12:52 pm
We sailed up the Mersey to visit the city of my birth on the beautiful Crystal Serenity last Wednesday. We were the only British couple on a ship housing around 1000 passengers of all nationalities. I was amazed at the wonderful accolades from all and the main topic was why only one day of this trip had been allocated to this great and historical city. Although I was born just a few miles away this is the first time I have visited our magnificent cathedrals, especially the Anglican which I hadn't realised is the largest one in Europe and was designed by a twenty two year old. Thank you Liverpool for making me feel so proud. The progress is already so obvious and surely will soon bring the worldwide fame of yesteryear.

Yes it was outside the Cavern, there were more opposite also. My photo was blurry of those.

The woman who had a go at me for posting this photo in a facebook group was told by me, in a nice way to get lost, I can post what I want etc.... Apparently afterwards she came in and read my post and took off ranting, raving and swearing. So the admin blocked her out f the group.
Laughing silly sod!

So, she is to be buried here in Liverpool.

I'm surprised Bobby was cremated, I always imagined they would have planned to be buried together. Seems his ashes are scattered over the various homes they shared.
