    Must say that James Baker looks very good for 91 in that photo to me. Not at all hunched.

    Always struck by how old he looked in A Clockwork Orange when he was only in his early 30s! He looked more like 60.

    Latest video of Sir Geoff Hurst who is about to go on a speaking tour. He looks in good shape https://mobile.twitter.com/TheGeoffHurst/status/1447254850924843018

    Vera Day was married to the rather more famous photographer, Terry O'Neill, so one for the widow shopping thread.

    Impressed that he's still dying his hair at 98.

    Doesn't look too bad. I reckon she'll see 2022.

    I reckon we're looking at days and at most weeks based on the timing and tone of this message.
  8. Well the last three Presidents to die have all lived to be over 90 and Jimmy Carter is 97. Nixon made 81, Eisenhower 78, Truman 88. Clinton, W Bush, Trump and Biden all well into their 70s. It's only really LBJ of the post-war Presidents who has died early naturally. Therefore I think we can overstate the importance of the stress of the office issue when assessing longevity.
  9. Obviously impossible to say with certainty but of his close relatives who died a natural death: Joseph Kennedy (father) - 81 Rose Kennedy (mother) - 104 Rosemary Kennedy (sister) - 86 Eunice Kennedy (sister) - 88 Patricia Kennedy (sister) - 82 Jean Kennedy (sister).- 92 Edward Kennedy (brother) - 77 If the Addison's disease hadn't been fatal then I reckon he'd have at least made it to mid 70s so would probably have died in the early to mid 1990s around the same time as his old adversary Richard Nixon. I don't think he'd have made very old bones as his general health wasn't great but his genes were good and would probably have prevented an early natural death.

    Given the frankly appalling health record of most of his footballing contemporaries Ken Brown (who managed Norwich in the 80s) is doing well to still be attending games aged 87.

    According to this article the five who attended were Sir Geoff Hurst, Brian Dear, Ronnie Boyce, Ken Brown and Jack Burkett. Which means Jim Standen, Joe Kirkup and John Sissons were the non-attendees https://www.whufc.com/news/articles/2021/september/29-september/hammers-unveil-moore-hurst-and-peters-statue-london

    Lord Plumb would in my view be Deathlistable. Former President of the NFU and of the European Parliament.

    She was also brilliant in what I consider to be the best ever Inspector Morse episode, Second Time Around, when she was the mother of Christopher Eccleston's character. Also in that was Kenneth Colley who is 83 now.

    We probably won't know just how desperate his new life is until he dies. Based on the little we do know it's hard to make this judgement.

    By logic I'd expect Hurst and Paine to still be alive in 2025 but the way the past couple of years have gone they'll probably all be dead by the end of next year.
