    He looks and sounds pretty great to me. Better than I was expecting.

    Yes, I imagine he's long dead. He was very tall and it's rare for people of such height to live to grand old ages!

    Political Frailty

    A much better MP than the two amateurs who succeeded him. Though granted, Chris Laws of the SNP is better than Jim McGovern who was fifty shades of awful. McGovern isn't the healthiest of individuals either and strikes me as someone who won't be around in 5-10 years time. Worth keeping an eye on.

    The 100 Club

    Here's a later interview from September. It's over one hour long. At around 54:35: "After my wife died I thought there was nothing to live for. 69 years we were together. And I met this lady that just...knocked me out. She's a much younger woman and I'm 102. How much more time do I have? Six months? A year? A year and a half? A year and three days? Who knows, you don't know. And I suddenly became to feel...Oh shucks I wanna live, I wanna live." "I could go today, fine. But I don't want to. (Laughs)"
