    1. Prince Philip Duke Of Edinburgh

    Worth noting that Prince Philip will become the oldest ever British Duke in a week from today (10th December) when he turns 99 years and 6 months. He’ll overtake the 8th Duke of Wellington who died on 31st December 2014 aged 99 years, 5 months, 29 days.

    Maybe but that’s because she’s BRITISH... I doubt the tabloids would be interested in reporting on a Croatian lady who survived COVID.

    Remind me. Did we already go through the Autumn one?

    People Who Are Dead According To Wikipedia...

    Italian-born American film and television actor Antony Carbone (wiki) allegedly died in October at 95. Recognisable from the horror film The Pit and the Pendulum and from his appearances in The Twilight Zone, amongst other things. IMDb has his DOB as 1927, so may have been 93. Though they also had a date of death for him listed for years on their site, before finally scrubbing it after realising it wasn't true. Guess the only way we'll find out if he's truly gone this time is if he appears on Equity's next In Memoriam list. Speaking of... anyone got access to the latest issue? Would be good to have a flick through and see who's died off radar!

    You do realise that they need to get a British obit in order to score points? What would be the point in playing her? The Guardian are not going to run an article about a 99 year old Croatian woman who once beat COVID but has now died anyway, because IT'S NOT NEWS!

    Thanks guys. I totally missed this in the body of your post @msc. It's the correct decision. Alright, I haven't entered since 2017 but I'm going to give this a go next year then.

    This simply isn't the case. Originally the Lib Dems were in negotiations with Labour over a power sharing deal. It fell through because Brown did not compromise on enough of their demands. By the time Brown realised that the Libs were seriously considering putting Cameron into Downing Street, it was too late and a deal had been struck. There's a fascinating documentary on it that the BBC commissioned a few years ago.

    Is there any chance that going into a new year we can enforce a well overdue ban on teams picking notable only for dying/cancer mums and teens? I've raised this before, and I know there are quite a number of other players who would like to see an end of it once and for all. The DDP is just becoming full of pages and pages of non-notables with "@" substituted for the vowels because we know fine well that it's so vile and wouldn't want grieving relatives stumbling upon it, and yet we continue to allow these entries. Also, it removes all the fun of deadpooling. They're supposed to be noted individuals – a criteria of some degree limits the scope somewhat and makes it far more entertaining, so people can't just pick randoms who will in turn get passing notices in births, deaths and marriages columns.

    Whatever you think of Cameron, I don’t think he deserves any credit. The Lib Dems were the kingmakers in that situation and they blew off Brown.

    You vote? Jesus, that’s scary.

    The Herald calling her "legendary", a word which is often tossed around too charitably these days. I don't think anyone currently living who is associated with Scottish Labour could be considered a "legend". Perhaps they meant leg-end?
  12. Ok, so you do realise that Vera Lynn, de Havilland and Kirk Douglas were picked for consecutive years without any of them dying until 2020?
  13. No it won't. It's easily doable. The Committee just needs to stop picking people who are total wildcards e.g. Alan Greenspan and stop reserving about 20 spots for folk who are "too big to miss" but unlikely to actually die anytime soon e.g. the Queen.

    Napolitano please. I reckon her Majesty is out on an assassin job to become the oldest living European head of state.

    5 years out of 43 does not = “usually” In fact, it means usually not.
