    Thoughts and opinions on the death list 2019

    Does anyone know why the deathlist hasn't been updated with the two recent hits? Did the committee fall asleep during the long lull? ;-)

    Wouk's death has shaken up the list a lot. John Key almost reaches a positive score with his first hit; Great Uncle Bulgaria and En Passant get bonuses for their 3rd hits; and Grim Up North can feel very chuffed in his choice of jokers as he leapfrogs into equal 4th place at the head of the peloton.

    How many hits this year?

    King markb chokes on his inauguration speech. King Perfect Passing had best be wary of assassins in these turbulent times, it seems.

    Events in Australia have meant that King JiroemonKimura's coronation was barely begun before his reign was over. Long live King markb4!

    If I was to repeat this another year (and tbh I'm not sure I will), do you think I should give teams that predict a unique number of deaths a bonus point to try and incentivise people to spread the field of predictions? Or is that just annoying and fiddly?

    And suddenly with Bob Hawke's widely anticipated demise, lots of people move up the table together. John Key still sitting pretty despite zero hits, and his score is only going to go up as we get near the inadvertently predicted total of 5 deaths for the year. John Key -7 YoungWillz -11 drol -11 BlackLivio -12 The Quim Reaper -13 Phantom of the Midway -13 Sean -14 gcreptile -14 alt obits guy -14 Bibliogryphon -14 The Cosgroves -14 Zefph -15 Joey Russ -15 theoldlady -15 Sir Creep -15 Banana -15 Book -16 Master Tech -16 Great Uncle Bulgaria -16 SuperSowder -16 Grim Up North -17 nantonian2013 -17 En Passant -17 Squonk -17 Torva Messor -17 Dr_T -17 ebless -20 msc -21 The Old Crem -21 Gooseberry Crumble -22

    Will update tonight. Some people had him as a joker, so will be going at least 4 points up (from -2 to +2).

    What are the odds of John Key getting a (semi-inadvertent) victory, do we think?
  9. Holy shit, the Tories are polling in 5th place, behind the Greens: https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/politics/european-election-poll-brexit-party-farage-conservatives-labour-lib-dems-yougov-a8911101.html They're almost down to single figures now. This massacre may be the one silver lining of the rise of the Brexit party... but I'm not exactly ecstatic about swapping the old centre right for the alt right.

    The 3rd Death of 2019

    Went for Mugabe this time, with all his recent bouncing in and out of hospital.

    King Vaagheid is dead. Long live King JiroemonKimura! ... Long may he reign ;-)

    Doris Day's days are done. Three punters called it right (Zefph, The Cosgroves, and SuperSowder), and they each go up by two points, with The Cosgroves taking 3rd and Zefph taking equal 4th. John Key continues to look very safe in the lead for now. John Key -7 YoungWillz -13 The Cosgroves -14 Zefph -15 theoldlady -15 Phantom of the Midway -15 drol -15 Sean -16 alt obits guy -16 Bibliogryphon -16 Master Tech -16 BlackLivio -16 SuperSowder -16 Grim Up North -17 The Quim Reaper -17 Sir Creep -17 Banana -17 gcreptile -18 nantonian2013 -19 Joey Russ -19 En Passant -19 Squonk -19 Torva Messor -19 Dr_T -19 Book -20 Great Uncle Bulgaria -20 ebless -22 msc -23 The Old Crem -23 Gooseberry Crumble -24
  13. I think Lab are doing a bit better than that in the polls. But the Cons could easily drop that low. What would be hilarious would be if Cons did worse than the Lib Dems. Probably not going to happen, but they could easily end up close, eg in the teens

    The EU Referendum Hokey Cokey

    So in current polling, the party led by an alt right Donald Trump fanboy is leading the UK pack in the European Elections. That's actually pretty depressing. Only (small) silver lining is that they're basically murdering the Tory party in the process, since that's where the votes mainly seem to be coming from. Incidentally, do we think even running away from a car crash with a car containing a 13 month old toddler because, in his own words, he didn't want his face seen there will cut into this arsehole's support?https://www.google.com/search?q=farage+collision&client=ms-android-samsung&source=android-browser&prmd=niv&source=lnms&tbm=nws&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwiOjoXZlZPiAhWUUhUIHZKTC2oQ_AUoAXoECAwQAQ&biw=360&bih=520#fpstate=news_mode_related_coverage_page_uid_0&scso=_lpbWXJHDE-e31fAP3ain-AU1:392,_2pbWXKTGBcOJ1fAPsMmpgAc1:392
  15. I'm anticipating Tories may lose my local seats. They weren't far ahead of the lib dems previously, and they've annoyed locals by approving lots of new build houses without increasing local amenities. EDIT: My local two Lib dem candidates dominated it, raking in more than twice as many votes as the Tories.
