    That’s a pretty common complaint for people her age to be fair

    Journalists

    There are quite a few hacks out there not much longer for this world, many still writing regularly. Sir Peregrine Worsthorne (b. 1923) former editor of the Sunday Telegraph, still contributes the odd column here and there to various publications I believe. US film critic Roger Ebert (b. 1942) famed for his thumbs/up down criteria along with the late Gene Siskel, has had extensive treatment for thyroid cancer over the past few years including large sections of his jaw removed can now no longer speak as a result, though he continues to write regular film reviews and is a prolific Tweeter. Has said he will not undergo any further treatment if the cancer comes back, definitely one to bear in mind for the 2012 list I reckon. Plenty of potential for puns too - "Ebert Gets Two Thumbs Down" "Last Picture Show For Ebert" "Movie Fades to Black" "Roger, Over and Out" or how about "Hopefully Not A Thumbs Down at The Pearly Gates" deserving of his own thread really. Derek Jameson (b. 1929), former Mirror editor went on to become Radio 2 DJ and prolific TV presenter and personality, spotted recently on BBC2's The Young Ones (no, not that one). That's just for starters really, must be many others I haven't thought of, what do people think?

    Think he was one wrestler who had the good sense to quit while he was still healthy and hung on to his money

    Paul Verhoeven

    Terrific director, hope he sticks around a bit longer. Thought Elle was fantastic in spite of what various moaning Minnies protested

    I don’t usually like to run with the herd but fuck it, Ginger got my vote

    49. Ginger Baker

    I abhor prejudice though I loathe political correctness even more. Patronising rubbish stifling honesty and free speech, has achieved precisely fuck all and only enabled the likes of Boris Johnson and Donald Trump to thrive
