    Prince Andrew

    Nah, Frankie's part of the syndicate with Jackie Bird, Princess Anne, David Quantick and Renee Simonot who put in their shared team each Hogmanay. Oh shit, not meant to give these secrets out...

    1. Prince Philip Duke Of Edinburgh

    Queen Victoria actually died on the Isle of Wight, which is as about as far from Balmoral as you can possible get in the UK.

    Thoughts and Opinions on the 2020 List

    Well, there should be at least one more hit in 2020, as mind one of the long standing quirks of DL: "Never 11 hits without a 12th..."

    Cricket Thread. Only Mad Dogs And Englishmen

    Reminds me of Balbir Singh. Keep active and healthy into his 90s so survived the original heart problems which would have killed normal folk, but the damage was too much and neither was able to fully recover.

    The Deathlist Poker Tournament 2020

    Thanks to Willz for posting the masterlist so I can remember what my team actually is... Writing, taking as read the names we all know by now - which is pretty much all of them, Bullet Bob is a dull wrestler but should get a QO as he is in the WWE HoF and also because his son Brian was one of the most popular wrestlers of the 90s. Michael Cullen is the former Deputy PM of New Zealand, I believe his health problems have been mentioned on the forum before but he's a real "will they see the 2020 DDP name?" right now. Ditto Stuart Wheeler, who helped fund David Cameron's election and the Brexit campaign, but is now gravely ill with cancer. Meghwal I nabbed off one of Drols lists of Asian Politicians in Comas. Lone Dybkjaer (Danish MP plus wife of the former Prime Minister, sort of Danish Cherie Blair if she won a seat) has been told her treatment doesn't work so if she sees 2021 it'll be an impressive feat. As for Everett McGill, who you might recall from Licence to Kill where he plays the FBI agent who double crosses Bond/Felix and works for the drug lord. Then gets eaten by a shark. Saw him show up in something or other recent and thought "Man, he looks like shit". So he's my annual Acting Punt in Willz's Poker Game, of which iirc I have a surprisingly strong success rate with. 11. msc 01. John Lewis (US Civil Rights) - K Hearts 02.

    The 2020 Deathlist Cup

    In a non-DL way I knew of Banali, Draper (not directly by name but I remember the Lobbygate scandal), the other Ratzinger lad and Bullet Bob. Of the rest, some are Cup fodder but a fair few seem to be note-worthies I just haven't heard of - I don't really remember Indian politicians unless Drol has mentioned them seven million times. And even then...
  11. Can confirm via a query to DWM that Trevor Ray died in December 2019. So the Doctor Who Guide is correct.

    The Deathlist Poker Tournament 2020

    A few names I got through on the "some bastard was allowed them last year so I expect to be allowed them" leeway, but Ratzinger I always assumed was notable enough. Helps to remember more religious members of the family moaning about the "Ratzinger brothers" well before one of them became Pope!

    The Deathlist Poker Tournament 2020

    Rome Newsroom, Jul 1, 2020 / 04:30 am MT (CNA).- Benedict XVI’s older brother Georg Ratzinger died Wednesday, just a little more than one week after the pope emeritus' visit. Msgr. Georg Ratzinger died in Bavaria at the age of 96 on July 1. Catholic News Agency with the date confirmation. Fastest Poker start ever, @YoungWillz? ANd you ninja'd me while I was typing but here's the confirmation anyway.
