    Derby Dead Pool 2022

    https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0166014/ Does imdb count as a QO? (Still hunting one for the 'dead in Feb' Rene Clemencic)

    https://www.telegraph.co.uk/obituaries/2022/05/13/teresa-berganza-sultry-voiced-mezzo-soprano-revered-portrayal/ Spanish mezzo Teresa Berganza dead, sadly. Still, every cloud has a silver lining - in this case points for The Fat Lady's Singing.

    She's in one of the films for about 90 seconds. Sorry, just being pedantic :-).

    So .. What Do You Watch On TV?

    Four episodes into WeCrashed. It's OK. While the leading players created something that was successful rather than being con artists, the whole 'obviously going to end badly/waiting for the bubble to burst' feel of it is quite reminiscent of Inventing Anna. At least in this one the lead is charismatic rather than obnoxious.

    This was my team submitted some weeks ago. Like Anne Buydens last year, my no 3 didn't make the start line so everyone below moves up with Trintignant coming off the bench. 1.Leslie Phillips 2 Pete Murray 3 Kane Tanaka - dead 3 Frank Field 4 George Perez 5 Bob Barker 6 Bernard Cribbins 7 Stanley Baxter 8 Barry Briggs 9 Norman Tebbit 10 Berry Gordy Junior 11 Richard Bonynge 12 Renata Scotto 13 Andy Scott 14 Buzz Aldrin 15 Leontyne Price 16 Susie Steiner 17 Henry Kissing´╗┐er 18 Tom Lehrer 19 Jane Morgan 20 Freda Payne 21 J-L Trintingnant

    Only improves my goal difference rather than my position but fwiw following the pre-start demise of Anne Buydens and everyone below her moving up one, I think my total should be 500 (Dole) + 350 (Eden) + 85 (Gupilil) + 40 (Harding) = 975. Thanks.

    Read Any Good Books Lately?

    He is part of my theme team´╗┐ I read the Caine mutiny about a week before Herman Wouk died. If I can pull off the same trick twice he should be dead round about Saturday teatime.

    Read Any Good Books Lately?

    David Lodge - How far can you go. Starts off well with some shafts of humour but the characters are mostly one dimensional puppets and he keeps being sidetracked into writing a polemic against the catholic church. Overall not bad, but wouldn't recommend.

    Say someone had Kane Tanaka quite high up, at 3 say. Does the sub come in at no 3 or does everyone else get promoted one position with the sub coming in at 21? Asking for a friend.... Thanks.

    The Ukraine Crisis

    I don't get the assertions that Russia is losing. Certainly it's not gone to plan for the Russians but nevertheless they've taken a lot of Ukraine territory and I don't see any reason why they won't continue to do so, particularly in the south (where they have much of the coast already) and the East. The Ukrainians don't have enough men and equipment on the ground. Clearly NATO (sensibly) doesn't want to get directly involved and the best case scenario is that an agreement is reached whereby Russia keeps what it's taken but undertakes not to try and take the rest of Ukraine (at least until it comes back for another go in 5 years' time when it is convinced it can get the rest of it more quickly than it has done this time). There's a lot of good will towards Ukraine in the West now but after a few months of fuel rationing, shortages of some foodstuffs, inflation etc I think public opinion will selfishly tire of making 'sacrifices' to support them.

    Enjoying 'Slow Horses'. Gary Oldman is excellent and TLK fans will recognize Young Odda as a baddie wanting to cut a pakistani-born student's head off.

    Memes

    Yes, been there, got the T shirt literally. These two, as per picture with 'wombling free' in green underneath. If I ever go to a DL-con I'll model it.
