The Independent has put together a "Good List" of 100 people it thinks are...well....er....good.
The list bears all the hallmarks of a few journos sitting around in a "silly season" lull throwing a few names together to meet a deadline.
Nevertheless it is an interesting and thought-provoking list. At the end of the day, we are not here to be rich, as highlighted in the Sunday Times Rich List, so it is encouraging that "being good" is perhaps becoming more valued in our society or,...er...at least, in the Independent.
One bright spot is that our Shirl the Whirl is on the list. I am also pleased to see Lionel Blue on the list as he is an all-round good egg.
