    King Charles III

    June is when the new banknotes will appear. It would be very sad if that were to prove a posthumous issue, though obviously whatever happens they'll be around for a while ... https://www.bankofengland.co.uk/banknotes/king-charles-banknotes

    Two hours later, still nothing on Cricinfo or the BBC cricket page! I only caught him at the end of his playing career but remember him being the match referee in the infamous 'forfeited' Oval Test of 2006. Shame he couldn't have got that game restarted somehow.

    On his afternoon show Wright was always banging on about his latest diet - how he'd quit carbs, given up drinking etc etc - doesn't seem to have done him much good, or perhaps he got back into bad habits after his show was cancelled ... anyway, I thought this was a nice moment - from the end of Vernon Kay's show the other day https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/p0hc1zly/radio-2s-piano-room-piano-room-month-2024-steve-wright-tribute

    Donald J Trump

    To say to other NATO members that America won't come to your aid if you're attacked and haven't paid your 'subs' is one thing. To say that he would encourage Russia to attack and invade those who haven't is utterly deranged. I actually hope he gets in in November and then does a William H Harrison a month later. Whoever comes after can't be any worse.

    King Charles III

    There's been nothing else on BBC News for the last hour. Anyone would think the man was on his deathbed. All the same, I like him, and I know many people live for years with cancer (of all types). No reason why he shouldn't have a few more years yet.

    King Charles III

    Abdication is not something that can just be done on a whim. It's a huge process that involves Parliament and all the Commonwealth territories. I'm sure that William, with three young children, isn't exactly desperate to be King. If the King becomes very ill there may be a regency, but that'll be it.

    Dead Pop Stars

    Better known for his work with Boney M, I would say. As well as producing their records he also provided the male vocal parts mimed by Bobby Farrell on stage. "Oh, those Russians!"

    Tim May, one of Warne's old spin partners, one to watch: https://au.sports.yahoo.com/cricket-fans-rally-tim-may-sad-revelation-first-west-indies-test-201801085.html?utm_source=Content&utm_medium=Social&utm_campaign=Facebook&utm_term=Sport&ncid=facebook_facebook_k0cpmc7b04w&fbclid=IwAR0KR2YRTh892stCZiGcpIZapKih6Qy9GlwrPjhi6HSxqu-hDRS4oR2Bxiw

    Jacques Delors

    Even two years ago they were describing him as 'ancient' - a bit rude though. And what a great tag-line - I was expecting something along the 'Up Yours' line but that was way better. I extend my heartfelt contrafibularities to the writer.

    Ideas and possibilities for 2024

    I gather she has been diagnosed with ME, which can't be good at any age, let alone someone in their eighties. Still, there seems to me to be a difference between 'keeping a low profile' and missing the two biggest RF events of the last ten years, while letting her husband go alone. Was she seen at the Platinum jubilee?

    Ideas and possibilities for 2024

    Duchess of Kent before the Duke, surely? Fifteen months ago she was too ill to attend the Queen's funeral, and she didn't make the Coronation either. The Duke has been quite active in comparison.

    Lech Wałęsa

    I never knew his name had an accent under the 'e' - I've just been trying to wipe something off my keyboard.

    Ideas and possibilities for 2024

    How about Dabney ("9 to 5") Coleman? Just passes the fame test I reckon, and turns 92 in January. And if you buggers don't pick Roger Corman and Neil Harvey next year, you never will.
