Whether you fought with her or not, whether you agreed with her or not, she is gravely unwell with stage four lung and pancreatic cancer.
It is not curable.

I’ve been speaking with her and with her permission, I’ve let you all know now.

She says hi to everyone and sends her love.

Please leave her some words of encouragement in this tough time, whilst she’s fighting for her life.

As always, Sassy-style, she’s fighting and staying strong! She’s a fierce character and cancer won’t take her without a noise, I’m sure.

Let’s send her all,of our best wishes and love. X

I wish her all the strength in the world to fight this for as long as she can, and I bet she ends up doing a damn impressive job.

Can you imagine sassy going anywhere quietly or without kicking butt?
She’s a fighter.

Any crossed swords here between posters when thrashing out a debate about news or politics or current affairs issues etc, really pales into insignificance when one of us has a real fight going on...


Then I'm 100% on your side!


Best wishes, peace and love!

Thank you Tommy. I will certainly pass that on.

And I agree...opinions pale into insignificance when something like this happens.

Your words are lovely.

I only vaguely remember her from here, or somewhere else, but cancer sucks and I wish her all of the best in her battle.

Hopefully we can find a cure soon, to rid that planet of this obnoxious disease.

Sassy is a lovely lady, she was one of the first to welcome me on here when i first joined, she was always big hearted and open......I missed her when she left.

I am so sorry to hear the sad news.

I can only wish her love, luck  and the best of wishes for the time ahead.  I love you

Sassy is a monument around here. She is a real fighter. I'm sure cancer has a huge battle on its hands.

I told her exactly that.

I’ll pass on your thoughts to her. Thank you Quill.

This makes my heart bleed.
I have known Sassy for ever, it seems.
I knew she was really ill, she contacted me privately and asked me to pass the news to Eddie, which I did.
This is Sassy's biggest ever fight, one that I know she will be up for.
She has always fought for the underdog, fought injustice and fought corruption.
We fought hackinggate together, which ultimately  saw the virtual demise of that site.
We haven't always agreed -over Corbyn, for example, but we have always remained  great friends, agreeing to disagree.
If you read this Sass, stay strong, love you to bits, we are all rooting for you,and..... Kier is doing a decent job.
Thoughts and prayers are with you to the moon and back

i like sassy, although we have definitely disagreed on s tuff over the years

she's one of the strongest posters i've known and also very stubborn (which is a massive plus when fighting illness)

she's also big hearted and genuinely cares about shit that's going on, she's never been one to just jump on a passing bandwagon, she stuck to her guns and i admire much about her.

not been in contact for some while but wishing nothing but the best

Sassy and I rarely ever saw eye to eye, particularly on party politics. But all in the past pales into insignificance in the face of this sad, sad news.
You’re a fighter, Sassy, and I know you’ll fight like hell for every day and every hour with your loved ones, just as my own late wife battled with this scourge of the human race.
Please accept the love, best wishes and blessing of an old adversary and an old man.

I already sent a message to you via Andy, a few weeks ago.
You are in my thoughts sassy.
Much love, Jules. x

Sad to hear

In the old days Sassy and I used to get on very well and then later clashed over Israel and a number of other things politically.

Sassy has always stood her ground of which I respect and sending her best wishes

Keep up the fight Sassy and stay gold
