    June Whitfield

    The only interview she did was a BBC Local Radio special, which could have been recorded weeks ago. The Mail / Mirror articles are just reporting what she said on the radio show.

    They are two different MPs. Kate Osamor (Edmonton) has the drug-dealing son. Fiona Onasanya (Peterborough) is currently on trial for claiming someone else was driving when caught speeding.

    Ideas and Possibilities for 2019

    Doddie Weir is an absolute certainty to get an obituary from the BBC and all the British newspapers. Would agree he will likely make 2019 though.

    Ideas And Possibilities For 2017

    Gerald Kaufman, 86, is currently the UK's oldest and longest-serving MP. He has not voted in the House of Commons since May so seems a likely candidate for 2017? http://www.publicwhip.org.uk/mp.php?mpn=Gerald_Kaufman&mpc=Manchester%2C_Gorton&house=commons&display=allvotes#divisions
