    Ideas and Possibilities for 2020

    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

    Ideas and Possibilities for 2020

    I have been doing some more thinking about potential names: From the world of British politics: Lord Robert Armstrong (ex UK Cabinet Secretary) [91] (age at time of writing) 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) [86] Other: Sir Lenox Hewitt (Australian senior public servant, father of Blair cabinet minister Patricia Hewitt) [now 101] 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
