    John Major

    Frankly, who knows? You'd have got long odds on Alistair Darling going before Dennis Skinner and Norman Tebbit six months ago.

    The 18th death of 2023

    Carter for obvious reasons. Although at this rate the entire list will go before him.

    Who Should Be On The 2024 Deathlist

    How about Sharon and Ozzy replacing the Carters (assuming Jimmy isn't here to start the year)?

    Political Frailty

    It must have been a very aggressive form of cancer that did for Darling as Alastair Campbell said he saw him recently and he didn't appear unwell and George Osborne is quoted as saying he didn't even know Darling was ill.

    Political Frailty

    OK, the artist formerly known as Michael Ancram might wish to be on his guard.

    Political Frailty

    I'm beginning to think Malcolm Rifkind and Michael Ancram might wish to get their affairs in order if the Reaper's cull of ageing former Edinburgh MPs continues.

    Golf: The 19th Hole

    You'd struggle to see many more youthful looking 88 year olds than Gary Player

    Clint Eastwood

    Looks more like another 2-3 years than next year based on those photos.

    Ideas and possibilities for 2024

    How about former Chancellor and perennial unsuccessful Conservative leadership candidate Lord Kenneth Clarke? Has been overweight for decades, famously smokes cigars like a chimney and enjoys a drink. Never been a picture of health but now increasingly dishevelled. Wife died about ten years ago. He's 84 next year and has done well to make it this far given his lifestyle as has looked like a heart attack waiting to happen for a long time.

    The 16th Death of 2023

    Starmer-Smith now Ackland has gone.

    Who Should Be On The 2024 Deathlist

    Would like to see at least one cricketer included. Gary Sobers, Geoff Boycott, Dickie Bird and Neil Harvey are all good candidates. Not a cricketer but I'd like to see Colin Jeavons included if he makes the starting line.

    Who Should Be On The 2024 Deathlist

    Not sure about Fergie. I know he had a brush with death a few years ago but he appears to have recovered well and is still pretty active despite his wife recently dying. Redknapp doesn't feel ready yet either. Brazil could easily spontaneously combust at any time.

    Who Should Be On The 2024 Deathlist

    Is Fred Haise famous enough? I'd say so given the Apollo 13 film.

    21. Joss Ackland

    Respect to Rosalynn (RIP) but Joss Ackland was famous for a lot more than being married to someone famous. A top actor who I'm amazed lasted as long as he did given he looked really old in the 1980s and was quite overweight in later life. RIP
