    Thoughts and opinions on the death list 2019

    My thoughts on the remaining 44 candidates Kirk Douglas - Think he'll both make his 103rd and 2020 now. Olivia De Haviland - no guarantee she'll see 2020. Duke Of Edinburgh - More deterioration come autumn but should see 2020. Leah Bracknell - Hoping for impossible miracle regarding her terminal cancer, should be fine for 2020 at least. Vera Lynn - Not looking 100% going my recent pictures of her, wouldn't be surprised if she is a late Robert Mugabe - Just maybe his year. Jimmy Carter - Should see out this year but 2020 will be a big hurdle for him. Pierre Cardin - Think he'll all right this year but too old to be dropped. Bob Dole - Increasingly frail, no guarantee he'll see 2020. Henry Kissinger - Still able to fly across the Atlantic despite his frailty, too old to be dropped now. Jerry Stiller - Quiet of late, maybe worth keeping for the 2020 list. Javier Perez De Cuellar - Could go anytime Bob Barker - In and out of hospital, 50/50 Murray Walker - Still writing columns but still frail and now too old to be dropped. Emperor Akihito - Now retired, wouldn't surprise me if he goes this year. Betty White - Should be all right this year but we know what happened to Doris Day. Hosni Mubarak - Still looks reasonably healthy, should be dropped for the 2020 list. June Brown - Depends on when she will retire from Eastenders Stirling Moss - How is he still alive? Alan Greenspan - still makes TV appearances, easy drop for next year. Jacques Chirac - Dementia getting more advanced, think he's a 2020 goner. Dick Van Dyke - The DL committee must take the risk next year by dropping him, most stupid pick ever. Nobby Stiles - Has had end stage dementia since at least spring 2017 yet somehow he keeps breathing. Barbara Walters - getting more and more fucked. Honor Blackman - quiet of late, think she is now an ever present on the DL until she goes. Harry Belafonte - quiet of late but had to be on the DL sometime. I'd keep him for 2020. Desmond Tutu - Looking more frail, either this year or next year. Valery Giscard d'Estaing - One of the oldest ex major world leaders, think he's a lock now. Ed Asner - still active on social media, easy drop next year. Vanessa Redgrave - Still performing in theatre, easy drop next year. Jimmy Greaves - Needs a lot of care now, gone by end of winter. Sidney Poitier - Droppable if 2019 finishes on a low number. Valerie Harper - Either this year or next year. Loretta Lynn - Droppable if 2019 finishes on a low number. Mikhail Gorbechev - not too sick, could be a bold drop next year if we finish on a low number. Tony Britton - too old to be dropped but might have to be a risky drop if 2019 ends on a low score. Cleo Laine - Was an interesting pick but not going anywhere for a few years. Clive James - Game of Thrones over, think he'll gone by end of winter. Prunella Scales - No more cruise journeys for her, goner in late 2020 at least. Little Richard - Can no longer answer fanmail, too big to miss. Larry King - Divorcing 7th wife, had heart surgery this year, think he's a worthy drop for 2020. Tina Turner - Still looking great at nearly 80, wasted pick. Shane McGowan - He had to be on the list sometime but I think he'll see 2021. Ginger Baker - Getting really hard for him now.
