    Who Should Be On The 2019 Deathlist?

    From the current list... Keep 1) Kirk Douglas: Extremely elderly and will make a record breaking 17th appearance next year 2) Leah Bracknell: Clearly still very ill, although she could go on for a while 3) Herman Wouk: Ancient and falling apart 4) Olivia de Havilland: Extremely old 5) Prince Philip: Too big to miss and now 97 and retired 6) Betty White: Looks frail and too big to miss 7) Javier Perez de Cuellar: Very elderly and wheelchair bound 8) Pierre Cardin: Very elderly 9) Stirling Moss: Retired due to poor health 10) Doris Day: Too big miss and very elderly 11) Bob Dole: Looks awful 12) Bob Barker: Several hospitalisations recently 13) Jimmy Carter: Too big to miss 14) Leslie Phillips: Looks extremely frail 15) Jill Gascoine: Seems to be at a very advanced stage of Alzheimer's 16) Vera Lynn: Very ancient 17) Robert Mugabe: Too evil to miss 18) George Bush Sr: Been in ill health for several years and in the danger zone with his wife dying 20) Pope Benedict XVI: Looks frail and reportedly in ill health 21) June Brown: Looks frail 22) Valerie Harper: Still slowly dying 23) Clive James: Looks awful, surely the end must finally be approaching 24) Jimmy Greaves: Looks very frail 25) Olivia Newton-John: Recent reports on her health sound grim Drop 1) Linda Nolan: Although dying, I don't think she is in danger of dying anytime soon. 2) Prunella Scales: Don't think her Alzheimer's has worsened enough to kill her yet 3) Henry Kissinger: Still active and seems to be in good health 4) Honor Blackman: Seems to be in good health 5) Dick van Dyke: Still very active and in good health 6) Stanley Baxter: No health news on him, but I think there are other candidates who are older and/or in seemingly worse health than him 7) Valery Giscard d'Estaing: Looks in good form 8) Mel Brooks: Seems to be in excellent health 9) Sean Connery: Still looking in good form 10) Louis Farrakhan: Looked in good shape at Aretha Franklin's funeral 11) Ian St John: Doing very well despite prostate cancer 12) Ronnie Wood: Has recovered from cancer 13) Joni Mitchell: Tough drop, but I think there are better candidates, would be my first choice to carry over if any of the top 25 die before the new year 14) Paul Gascoigne: Too unreliable

    Thoughts On The 2018 List

    Now that we are a quarter of the way through the year I decided to do analysis of the remaining picks. Kirk Douglas: Extremely old and looked very frail at the golden globes. Leah Bracknell: Terminally ill with stage 4 lung cancer and looked very gaunt in last appearance. Has been very quiet recently. Herman Wouk: Extremely old and reliant on a nasal canula in July last year. Recently sold his house, suggesting he's gone into a care home Olivia de Havilland: Extremely old but still looks in good shape, but at her age she could easily go in her sleep. Prince Philip: Old and now retired. Looks quite frail and has recently missed a number of public appearances due to ill health. Betty White: Her age appears to be starting to catch up with her. John McCain: Terminally ill with glioblastoma. Has not attended the Senate in several months and looks frail in pictures. Linda Nolan: Terminal breast cancer, but still seems to be doing ok. However, as she has said she will not undergo life-extending chemotherapy I could see her going downhill quickly. Lord Carrington: Old but still looks in good shape Javier Perez de Cuellar: Old and wheelchair bound. Also reportedly suffering from memory loss. Pierre Cardin: Old but health unknown Stan Lee: Lost his wife last year and recently suffered pneumonia. Has had a number of financial and legal issues recently. Stirling Moss: Spent several months in hospital due to a chest infection last year. Has now retired from public life and had his website closed down due to continued ill health. Tessa Jowell: Terminally ill with glioblastoma, looked awful in recent interviews. Doris Day: Old and not appearing in public much but could just be retired. Bob Dole: Looked very frail in recent picture Bob Barker: Appears to be doing ok. Prunella Scales: Has Alzheimer's and appears to be declining but seems not to be in as bad of shape as Jill Gascoine or Neil Simon. Jimmy Carter: Looks in good health for his age but it would not surprise me if his cancer returned Leslie Phillips: Suffered a stroke and seizure and has rarely appeared in public since then. When has been seen he has looked extremely frail and been wheelchair bound. Jill Gascoine: Stated in November 2016 as being in the final stages of Alzheimer's by her husband Vera Lynn: Extremely old and seems quite frail Robert Mugabe: Little information on him since he lost power. George Bush Sr: Has suffered from parkinsons for years and being hospitalised a number of times. Now wheelchair-bound and looks very frail, surely can't last much longer Charles Aznavour: Old but still active, bad pick. Henry Kissinger: Old but still seems active. Honor Blackman: Old but seems to be doing ok. Barbara Bush: Was pictured using a nasal canula last year. Also likely to be widowed soon. Dick van Dyke: Old but still very active and healthy, terrible pick. Stanley Baxter: Old but nothing known about his health. Valery Giscard d'Estaing: Seems to be doing ok. Mel Brooks: Old but still active, bad pick. Pope Benedict XVI: Said by his brother to be suffering from a degenerative disease. The Vatican deny this but I trust his brother over them. Neil Simon: Over 90 and mute as a result of Alzheimer's as well as having a kidney transplant. June Brown: Old but still seems active. Hosni Mubarak: Suspect his health issues were exaggerated but little information is available: Sean Connery: Reportedly frail but looked in good shape at the US Open last year. Louis Farrakhan: Relatively young by deathlist standards and still seems to be in good health, bad pick. Denis Norden: Old and apparently frail Ian St John: Given a tough diagnosis but seems to be doing well. Jimmy Greaves: Suffered a severe stroke a few years ago and looks very frail. Also remarried his ex-wife last year despite them having been reunited for decades so was perhaps done for inheritance purposes. Valerie Harper: Slowly dying of cancer. Reports last year of her treatment failing and no updates since then. Clive James: Slowly dying of leukaemia and emphysema, has been very quiet recently. Ronnie Wood: Had lung cancer last year but recovered. His cancer could well come back but a bad pick until then. Olivia Newton-John: Terminally ill with breast cancer but appears to be doing very well. Joni Mitchell: Suffered an aneurysm a few years ago and still looks frail. Paul Gascoigne: Slowly drinking himself to death, I don't think he'll live to a great age but I don't think this is his year either.
