    Political Frailty

    I know Chloe. I like her on a personal level but she's a Wet so not my cuppa politically. She had every intention of early retirement but then there was a snap election called in 2019 so she stayed. So I suspect she'll stand down before she loses her seat. The lack of incumbency will make it more likely to flip too I suppose. Not sure I agree with you on Scotland. Very hard. Look at what happened to the Scottish Labour vote in 2019. It crumbled away even further to the Nats. Now what I do recognise is the Nats have likely exhausted their potential pool of voters now. They can't chip away at the Labour vote even further than they have done, but it's a long way back for Scottish Labour. It'll take at least another decade.

    From Cleric To Relic

    Look at how spot on I was with that suggestion ^ #justsayin' Anyways, another prominent Serbian Orthodox bishop has died aged 83. This time Atanasije Jevtić (wiki), Bishop of Zahumije and Herzegovina and a close associate of the above mentioned Radović. The cause you ask? Well COVID of course!

    Political Frailty

    Indeed, though long gone are the days of Labour comfortably winning seats like Harlow. Alliance vote split maybe lost it for them but a change in demographics/voting behaviour amongst class has kept them out more recently. In the whole of the East of England region, there are 52 Tory seats vs. 5 Labour (and 1 Lib Dem – St. Albans). The five which Labour are all inner city and/or high concentration of student populations/ethnic minorities – Cambridge, Bedford, Luton N, Luton S and Norwich S. Not trying to go off topic to a broader debate about today's politics but Harlow is the perfect case study example of their problem – working class folk who want fuck all to do with Labour. They simply don't appeal to a great chunk of ppl down here and that is a serious problem for them going forward. Winning a GE for them is trickier now without Scotland, so when the vote share is stacked up against them 2 to 1 in places like Harlow, it's bleak. Not convinced Sir Keir Brylcreem has the answers to this problem.

    1. Prince Philip Duke Of Edinburgh

    The aesthetics on the outside are not important as you age. There are loads of cases of people looking absolutely cunted by the time they’re 70 and living for a further 20 to 30 years. The Duke has always been very sporty and in general active. His diet and healthcare will have been top notch for the last 70 years. And before that... well how you live before your late 20s generally isn’t that important in the long run. It’s how you live from your 30s onwards that’s most important.

    George R. R. Martin

    He's also a walking bouncy castle who's approaching away to hit his mid-70s. His last release in the A Song of Ice and Fire series was in 2011 and he's still got two left. He's said that the next one may not be ready in time for a 2021 release(!), which gives me little hope that he'll even finish the series. Did he just get bored and decide to sack it off after HBO gave him a big fuck off cheque to create Game of Thrones? Yes. Does he give a fuck? No. Is he a walking bouncy castle who'll explode before he finishes his work? Probably.

    The Beatles Death Curse

    And now nobody will ever find it in future because you've included both searchable terms, "accountant" and "Harry Pinsker", in the hyperlink. Does it have to be said a million and one times on here? – MAKE YOUR POSTS SEARCHABLE.

    Aww, aren't you cute with your wee baseball cards. Like a child in a sweet shop (or a kid in a candy store seeing as you'll probably demand it be in 'Murican English).

    We spoke about this only a few weeks ago. It's called terminal lucidity and its a recognised phenomenon with many theories about why it happens. Page on it here.

    Shelly Long

    This point has been addressed before. Canadian Paul is still a very active user on Wikipedia and he's one of the main contributors to Olympedia.org. The site was launched not too long ago, presumably to bridge the gap in information on Olympians of the past, which is rather scarce online.

    Plot twist: PB logs in, sees you've done this, sticks you on admin preview and you become the "fucker" who is "pissed off".

    Irate Visitors Rage Here, If You Must.

    @arghton, I think everyone on the Forum has a certain degree of anxiety with the search function given that it's not the best but I've learnt how to use it better in the last few years. 1) If you don't feed enough characters into it, sometimes it won't return any results. 2) If you type in something like Kenneth Kaunda, it may throw up 200 results of posts where ONLY the word "Kenneth" appears, therefore it's important to put searches with multiple words in quotation marks ("Kenneth Kaunda"). 3) In your searches, also try and account for spelling mistakes/alternative spellings which may have been used in posts instead. Sometimes less is more so a search for Kaunda would bring up relevant posts where users only used his surname as opposed to his full name. Obviously helps when there's a unique sounding surname but... 4) In the case of an individual where both the names are more common e.g. Johnny Johnson, then sometimes it helps by searching threads where you think they would've likely been discussed already. So e.g. go to the The Few/Battle of Britain thread then search "Johnson". It's by no means a perfect search function, it's actually quite flimsy, but if you just vary the ways in which you search then you'll quickly be able to work out who has threads vs. who doesn't.

    A DDP pick in 2017 and 2018, but not picked this year. Well @drol, 1913 still has Boris Pahor and Carl J. Shapiro. What was that you were saying about westerners not having any staying power?

    Jamaican Jamming

    Just seen his obituary on BBC News. Supposedly he had a subsequent stroke in July 2020 and had been in hospital since then! That's rough. It wasn't public knowledge, but it was known that he had a minor stroke in 2018. Maybe should have been on our radars but hey ho, we can't bag em all.

    David Cameron

    Yup, there are loads of reasons why he could have been vaccinated already other than underlying health issues. I'm still in my late 20s and have had the vaccine, because I've done some volunteering for NHS Test & Trace. I know several folk who are signed up as volunteers to T&T and they've all been vaccinated as a result too.
