    The 2021 Deathlist Cup

    Despite strong performances by DevonDeathTrip throughout his dead pooling career, it has seemed like he's been slipping a bit. Indeed, after winning the cup in 2018 he never made it out of round 2. However, his notice of the Zambian journalist with Covid still proves he has stuff left in the take. Will this March be the one that finally gets DDT to move on to round 3? We have to see, but in the mean time, points!

    Political Frailty

    I know Chloe. I like her on a personal level but she's a Wet so not my cuppa politically. She had every intention of early retirement but then there was a snap election called in 2019 so she stayed. So I suspect she'll stand down before she loses her seat. The lack of incumbency will make it more likely to flip too I suppose. Not sure I agree with you on Scotland. Very hard. Look at what happened to the Scottish Labour vote in 2019. It crumbled away even further to the Nats. Now what I do recognise is the Nats have likely exhausted their potential pool of voters now. They can't chip away at the Labour vote even further than they have done, but it's a long way back for Scottish Labour. It'll take at least another decade.

    From Cleric To Relic

    Look at how spot on I was with that suggestion ^ #justsayin' Anyways, another prominent Serbian Orthodox bishop has died aged 83. This time Atanasije Jevtić (wiki), Bishop of Zahumije and Herzegovina and a close associate of the above mentioned Radović. The cause you ask? Well COVID of course!

    I did a search but couldn't find anything . I think she was a pick on Derby Dead Pool at some point. I heard some rumours about mental health somewhere.

    Political Frailty

    Indeed, though they did win it back during the Blair years (along with a host of entirely unlikely places!). My point was more Harlow was endangered in 83 but the split made it inevitable. You are right, East England is very Tory friendly now - 44 of those seats you mentioned are safe as houses. Of those that didn't change in 2017/19, Chloe Smith is fighting gravity long term and Colchester could be close next time round, but yeah, thats about it. I don't think Scotland is irreversible gone for them either, but they wont do anything until they learn their lessons in defeat, and they still haven't done that up here after 10 election losses to the SNP in 14 years...

    Dick Sheppard (wiki) dead at 90. Stuntman in over 500(!) films including the James Bond series and The Italian Job (1969). Also held an incredible 18 Guinness World Records. Managed to get featured in their published editions every year from 1969 to 1996. The Sun obit. Mirror obit.

    The Dead of 2021

    Same here, I'm trying to convince myself that I'd hrard mutterings, but I don't think I had. Very much under the radar as far as I'm concerned.

    Political Frailty

    Indeed, though long gone are the days of Labour comfortably winning seats like Harlow. Alliance vote split maybe lost it for them but a change in demographics/voting behaviour amongst class has kept them out more recently. In the whole of the East of England region, there are 52 Tory seats vs. 5 Labour (and 1 Lib Dem – St. Albans). The five which Labour are all inner city and/or high concentration of student populations/ethnic minorities – Cambridge, Bedford, Luton N, Luton S and Norwich S. Not trying to go off topic to a broader debate about today's politics but Harlow is the perfect case study example of their problem – working class folk who want fuck all to do with Labour. They simply don't appeal to a great chunk of ppl down here and that is a serious problem for them going forward. Winning a GE for them is trickier now without Scotland, so when the vote share is stacked up against them 2 to 1 in places like Harlow, it's bleak. Not convinced Sir Keir Brylcreem has the answers to this problem.

    Kind of shocked at this one. Nicola Pagett died due to a brain tumour. I was only thinking about 'A Bit of a Do' yesterday and the longevity of its cast. Nicola Pagett obituary | Stage | The Guardian

    Political Frailty

    One of the many MPs who lost in 1983 as a result of the Labour>SDP/Alliance vote shift in seats where the Tory vote stayed relatively similar to 79 and they won. Foot would have still lost for obvious reasons but the SDP split lost them seats like Harlow above, turning certain defeat into a landslide.

    If he is well enough to undergo heart surgery then he is definitely big odds on to make 100. The guy will probably outlive Charles and Andrew. The latter especially!
