... to an old bigot.

Like him or loathe him there was no way of ignoring him

Oh, I dunno, I managed pretty well thanks!

Here's Manning from his self-penned obituary:

And as I look down now on all the over-paid executives who have made such a mess of television and undermined true comedy, and as I sense the affection from the mass of the British public, I know that I am the one having the last laugh.

Let's take a look at an example of "true comedy" shall we? From a 1995 police charity dinner, here's Manning addressing the only black copper in the audience:

Where is he? How are you, baby? Having a night out with nice people? Isn’t this better than swinging from the trees? – You’re black, I’m white. Do you think colour makes a difference? You bet your bollocks it does!

and

They used to be happy people in the cotton fields, singing their bollocks off day and night. A fella used to go around with a whip… ‘Oh, massa, give us another crack of dat whip. I love dat whip’…

Hee-larious.
