  1. only problem is thatif you give her one you might have to give one to Blair too.


    Not necessarily.


    Harold Wilson won four General Elections, at a push (1964, 1966 and both the 1974 ones). Though the February 1974 one is somewhat arguable.


    As for the views on Thatcher, I'd argue the split between those who remember her positively and those who remember her negatively isn't as clear cut as it may appear at times!

  2. The Death List regenerates - it has a few more chances to cheat death yet!


    As an observation, we're not getting as much Google juice as we used to so there is much less new blood happening by.


    I've got a cunning plan to address that, but on a more general note; Paul Hunter's demise taught us that not all Google juice is good.


    I take the opposite view, Paul Hunter's carkage showed exactly why we need the juice!

  3. John Hartson won't make 2010:




    Former Wales, Arsenal and Celtic striker John Hartson is in a critical condition after emergency neurosurgery on his brain.


    On the weekend 34-year-old Hartson was diagnosed with testicular cancer which had already spread.


    On Wednesday, doctors confirmed it was also present in his lungs.


    The father-of-three had undergone surgery at Morriston Hospital in Swansea, after being transferred from the city's Singleton Hospital.


    A hospital statement read: "He is currently being cared for by the critical care team at Morriston and is receiving round-the-clock care aiming to stabilise his condition.


    "He will resume radiotherapy and chemotherapy as soon as possible."

  4. I also came across a Lord Carrington, the longest sitting Lord-been there since 1945-but at a mere 90 and with a few speechs in the last year is probably a less likly candidate.


    Has been even longer than that for Carrington - he took his seat on his 21st birthday, June 6 1940, so has been in the Lords for more than 69 years now!

  5. We need more of Dicky O. And more of Brinsworth House Baiter - one of the greatest-named posters needs to return.


    Dicky O seems as good as can be expected, but I don't think he has done anything career-wise since the audio commentary to Carry on Teacher.

  6. Well, it has been a year or so since I last posted, and I have discovered many things since then. Such as the cross-dressing rumour, thrown in with a love of wearing nappies and riding a rocking horse, being a well-known rumour among the London media.


    He was rather extravagant during his student days, it seems...

  7. Another wrestling drug death - former WCW wrestler, just 34:




    ATLANTA -- His father says a former wrestler was found dead in his home after suffering an apparent accidental drug overdose.


    The father, Roy Tatum, tells The Atlanta Journal-Constitution that 34-year-old Chase Tatum was found dead around 4 p.m. Sunday in his home in Atlanta's Buckhead neighborhood.


    Chase Tatum used to wrestle for the now-defunct World Championship Wrestling organization. More recently, he appeared in the comedy "Who's Your Caddy?" alongside rapper Big Boi of Outkast.


    Tatum wrestled in WCW in 1998 and 1999.


    Chase Tatum had been recovering from back surgery to repair a degenerative disc. His father says the former wrestler had been fighting a dependence to painkillers for years but had been planning to enter a rehabilitation center.


    Roy Tatum said yesterday his son was in the process of getting his life back together.


    Laura Salm is an investigator with the coroner's office. She says a toxicology report has been ordered by the Fulton County Medical Examiner.


    Chase Tatum was 19 when he won the Mr. Georgia bodybuilding competition. He began a career as a personal trainer, which he continued until his death.


    In addition to acting and wrestling, Chase Tatum also worked as a road manager and personal assistant for Outkast.


    Chase Tatum's funeral is scheduled for 2 p.m. Thursday at Mount Paran Church of God in Atlanta.

  8. I was wrong about the title. She has a life peerage. Mark got his title through his dad, I think and I don't think it entitles him to sit in the House of Lords which is a relief. He's still a twat.


    Mark is a Baronet, thus not a peer. Think Dennis was the last Baronet to be created, and the first in a long time.


    As for the Gotcha! headline - it's forgotten now that few of those actually made the news stands. As soon as "Admiral" Kelvin MacKenzie realised there had been a lot of deaths, he altered the headline.

  9. Was he really that famous? I had heard the name but wouldn't have been able to put a face to it and it was a while before I linked him to Brokeback Mountain. Don't know what all the fuss is about to be honest and "Deaths of 2008" thread aside, isn't this site to discuss people who might die and not those who are already dead? And don't get me started on all the "but he was so pretty" crap. Why does it always come down to looks?


    I'd agree with all of that, this really doesn't hit me as being much of a much at all.
