    Notable Coronavirus Victims

    Times obituary for Freda Hodgson, aged 107, who was noted as being one of the oldest people in the UK to survive COVID-19 back in May. Ran a tea room in Rhodesia back in the day and once cooked for the Queen. Also the only person of the aristocracy to have ever been listed on the "Oldest in Britain" website (which tracks people aged 107+ in the UK).

    People Who Are Dead According To Wikipedia...

    T. M. Kaliannan (wiki) supposedly dead at 100. Indian politician and the last living member of India's first parliament (1950–1952). Bad year for India. Losing loads of their famous centenarians. Just a handful left now.

    Updated both the 60s and 70s lineups for The Cuff Links following the death of saxophonist Pat Rizzo, who later played with Sly & the Family Stone and War. Got to be more of these guys who are dead but information on them is scarce.

    World's Oldest

    Only because she hasn’t received news coverage in some time. Her relatives occasionally post about her on FB but FB isn’t an acceptable source for Wiki. We’ll know when she dies I imagine.

    Political Frailty

    A lot of the MPs in those days believed in that. Changed times. I can't think of any who advocate it today. An excuse to post this.

    Correct. It was late when I posted and I just searched “sitcoms”.

    20th Century Americans Sitcoms

    Mark York (IMDb), American actor who starred in the U.S. version of The Office as Billy Merchant, dead at 55 after an “illness”. No other details given other than the fact it was relatively sudden.

    Political Frailty

    Been told that Harry Greenway (wiki), 86, former Conservative MP for Ealing North (1979–1997) is in the final stages of dementia. Diagnosed about a decade ago. Easy scoring for the DDP... if he even makes it to next year.

    Political Frailty

    She'll be off for ages with this. Potentially years. Make more sense for her to stand down.
