    Thoughts and opinions on the death list 2019

    My thoughts on the remaining 48 Kirk Douglas - really old, still think 2019 is his year. Herman Wouk - Could go anytime Olivia de Havilland - 103 in July, no guarantee she'll survive this year. Prince Philip - Autumn will be his first real hurdle. Leah Bracknell - Still think she'll finally go this year Vera Lynn - Quiet of late, no guarantee she'll see out the year. Robert Mugabe - Now in the 50/50 zone. Jimmy Carter - 2020 may be his first hard year to keep on living. Pierre Cardin - Too old to be dropped Bob Dole - Think he'll be an autumn goner. Henry Kissinger - Reached the age of a DL bedblocker, wouldn't surprise me if he goes this year. Jerry Stiller - Who knows Javier Perez de Cuellar - 99 now, think he'll die any day now as he's been quiet of late coupled with last year's death hoax. Bob Barker - In and out of hospital. Getting increasingly harder for him. Murray Walker - Still think he'll be alright this year, now at an age of a DL bedblocker. Akihito - Frail, think he's returned to the list at the nick of time. Betty White - If Doris can go with previously unknown health issues at 97 then so can Betty. Hosni Mubarak - Still got at least a couple of years left in him. June Brown - Should be alright this year. Stirling Moss - A goner for sure this year. Bob Hawke - Don't think he'll survive the Aussie winter. Alan Greenspan - Random but could be worthy. Jacques Chirac - Frail but could last a bit yet. Dick van Dyke - No matter how sprightly he is, think he's a lock until he goes. Nobby Stiles - Had to return, outside chance now he'll see 2020. Barbara Walters - Maybe Honor Blackman - Think she'll stay on the DL until she goes but not this year. Harry Belafonte - Was a long overdue first appearance but likely to see out this year. Desmond Tutu - In the 50/50 zone. d'Estaing - Still makes public appearances, possible attempt to outjinx Ed Asner - Recently lost wife, still tweeting, next year at earliest. Vanessa Redgrave - Wouldn't surprise me if she goes this year. Think she's a bedblocker. Jimmy Greaves - Looks horrid but may last a bit yet. Sidney Poitier - Quiet of late, likely to de dropped for 2020 if 2019 finishes on a low number. Valerie Harper - Quiet of late but sensible keep. Cleo Laine - Interesting pick, still performing though. Loretta Lynn - Could be a lucky break. Gorbachev - Overdue DL debut year, in the 50/50 zone. Tony Britton - Really old so who knows John McCririck - Looks horrid, think he's an autumn goner. Clive James - Summer or Autumn goner. Prunella Scales - Think December will be too much for her. Little Richard - Could go tomorrow, could go in five years time. Larry King - Recently had heart surgery, think he'll be dropped for 2020. Tina Turner - Probably time she made her DL debut but not this year. Shane McGowan - Long overdue on the Deathlist, but I'd drop him next year as I think he has a good chance now of seeing 2021. Ginger Baker - Still touring, should see 2020 now. Johnny Clegg - Should be alright this year, but I'd keep him for the 2020 list.
