    Probably should mention she was the daughter and last surviving child of fascist supporting Patrick Boyle, 8th Earl of Glasgow. A particularly nasty piece of work.

    Go for it! Question: Allan Wilmot was also reported dead by his local MP some hours ago. No sign of a news report at all. With "fame" outside of Windrush, if he can't obit, 20 risky names I'd say.

    Well, baby, here is a report of the death at 96 of Allan Wilmot, one of the Windrush Generation and the last survivor of The Southlanders:

    Derby Dead Pool 2021

    Leslie Bricusse can go on the List of the Missed - last picked in 2017 I believe: https://www.bbc.com/news/entertainment-arts-58970326 http://www.derbydeadpool.co.uk/deadpool2017/celebs_B.html#bricul

    Sir Michael Caine

    Leslie Bricusse is no longer the last one living. Apparently Joan Collins has confirmed his death. Looking for a link. Bit of a pisser, he was on my shortlist for next year.

    You can't speculate, as not a lot of people know who he's talking about.

    The Deathlist Poker Tournament 2021

    Time once again for those doors of the Casino to creak open! Only they are not. The staff are all on furlough and all the generous facilities are closed. Yes, due the COVID restrictions, this time it's virtual baby! In between sanitising the public areas and vaccinating the pet tigers (yes, I know you were all hoping to visit the new petting zoo!) I shall be running the operations from the manager's desk and somehow receiving and answering the emails and texts to the helpdesk. Remember, you simply don't have to know how to play, it's all essentially calculated out for you, so you don't have to! In fact, I'd probably be out of a job if someone did know how to play this game! Just follow the rules below, enter and watch those sweet points roll in over the next few months. You don't even have to be playing with a full deck! Couple of Points Of Order in advance: 1. It's still a 6 month game. I don't really have the time or inclination to move this on plus the calculations would be become outrageously complex. I can think about this in the future, but for now the period sticks. 2. Only members of the Forum whose name was registered on or before 1 January 2021 may enter. This avoids the need for me to calculate scores for former members now banned setting up temp accounts to enter and people who have joined since who may end up after a short period that the Forum is not for them and disappear. So, with that out of the way, those who are eligible can PM teams to me before the deadline and we can go some way to heal the wounds obtained in the Deathlist Cup! Have fun!

    Well unlikely as Anita Pointer was picked by three teams this year. Including me. Though she doesn't qualify for my theme team, sometimes if they don't I stick them on my main team. 2 and a half months to go...

    Tweeter reporting that Australian drummer Des "Animal" McKenna has died: Played for many years on Hey Hey It's Saturday. Might be more insight from our Antipodean friends.
