    Irreverent in the true spirit of Deathlist.

    23. Bob Hawke

    Not at all. Emotions have been locked in for a few weeks, based on personalities & policies. Anecdotal evidence suggests that the 2 major parties (Liberal & Labor) have never been so disliked. The death of someone who was deposed more than 27 years ago because his decision making process went wobbly will not change anything. OTOH, his deposer (Paul Keating) has been shooting off at the mouth recently, and might make a difference. A significant minority of us have already voted because we'll be away from our home districts on Saturday.

    16. Murray Walker

    Correct. My father (who is 8 months older than Murray) quit smoking in 1960 because of the known cancer risk, and is still alive & kicking. The previous generation wasn't aware, so I don't accuse them of anything. I mentioned Graham's (possible) cause of death at age 66 only as a reason why Murray should anticipate a ripe old age like his mother's. (I've never seen Murray with a cigarette, so it seems a lesson was learnt).

    Murray seems to be chasing after the age of his mother Elsie: 101-102. His father Graham carked it at only 66 years – perhaps related to the fact that he was often photographed with a cigarette or pipe in his mouth. For comparison, Graham's older broth er Eric reached 89 years.

    Olivia Newton-John

    I had been hoping for a full recovery for her, but now that you've rekindled such an unpleasant memory, I'm not so enthusiastic.

    I still think the doomsayers have it right, that she has "only weeks to live." About 1,600 of them.

    Australian TV advert which might appeal to your sense of humour: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KFD6iiavcrk (Australian idiom "out in the woop woop" = hundreds of km from human uncivilisation).

    New Here And Just Saying Hello

    Election is the process by which Donald Trump became US President. Add your own national Prime Minister or President to the disaster list. It's been said that every time there's a Royal Visit to Australia, the republican movement takes a hit. Seeing Donald Trump on the TV news adds to the effect.

    Anybody who can evade the retaliatory spears of Australian Aborigines can't be in bad shape.

    Always polite, Toast. It's the only way to get respect.
