    The Who Versus the Beatles

    Roger Daltrey was on Good Morning Britain this morning and looks and sounds fantastic for a 76 year old. He could easily pass for 60. Looks much better than either Paul or Ringo.

    Cryer doesn't look too bad here for 85.

    Has an interview in the Racing Post today and is looking very yellow in what is presumably a fairly recent photograph which isn't a great sign for someone in their 80s.

    At 103 she could go at any time sadly. But what a life she has had and unlike some of the ancients who have graced the list she has clearly enjoyed decent health in extreme old age so has hopefully been aware of and enjoyed being a centenarian. Ultimately in the lottery of life that's as good as it gets.

    Trump won't get fooled again.

    Political Frailty

    Since Alan Clark died in 1999, only one sitting Conservative MP (Eric Forth in 2006) has died of natural causes. Michael Colvin died in a house fire in 2000. No sitting Conservative MP has died in 14 years. In that time about 30 Labour MPs have died. Given we are talking about probably 700-800 different people, that's a remarkable stat.

    Political Frailty

    I think that's right. Huge percentage of Tory MPs seem to die in the 85-95 age range. Very few get past 95.

    Political Frailty

    It's worth noting that although no sitting Conservative MP has died in office for the past 15 years (and only one in 20 years), the few MPs who get to the century are mostly Labour MPs - Hazell, Atkins and possibly Duffy. A lot of former Conservative MPs seem to die in the 90-95 age bracket.

    Stanley Baxter

    Wouldn't be that surprised if he made it to 100 given the lack of obvious health issues

    I notice from Twitter that Chris Evert's mother is still going aged 91.

    As an aside, Timothy West looks good for 85. Must be all that Royal Jelly.

    I doubt Jimmy White will make old bones but he's probably not going to trouble us in the immediate future

    If he makes it to the starting line in 2021, what about Dracula look alike Ray Reardon for next year's list?
