  1. I have been doing some more thinking about potential names:

    From the world of British politics:

    Lord Robert Armstrong (ex UK Cabinet Secretary)

    Lady Marcia Falkender (former advisor to PM Harold Wilson) [86]

    Joe Haines [90]

    Bernard Ingham (Thatcher's press secretary) [86]

    Lord Norman Tebbit (Thatcher cabinet minister) [84

    Lord Kenneth Baker (Ditto) [84]

    Lord Nigel Lawson (Chancellor of the Exchequer)

    Other:

    Sir Lenox Hewitt (Australian senior public servant, father of Blair cabinet minister Patricia Hewitt) [now 101]

    Tom Hughes (Australian attorney general in the Gorton government) [95]

     

    By 2020 it may, sadly, be time to consider some British theatrical dames:

    Patricia Routledge

    Tom Hughes, QC (Australian attorney general in the Gorton government) [95]

     

    In light of June Whitfield's demise in Dec. 2018, it occurs to me that it may, sadly, be time to consider some British theatrical dames- (I have already mentioned Angela Lansbury and Joan Plowright):

    Patricia Routledge [89]

    The 1934 crowd

    Judi Dench

    Maggie Smith

    Eileen Atkins
