    Thoughts and opinions on the death list 2019

    Absolutely agree. I'd already said it wasn't you, or this particular name, that it was just the latest. Yes.

    Thoughts and opinions on the death list 2019

    I've never heard of her. Regardless. There are thousands of people who are famous enough by whatever measure you use to go on the list. The committee can pick 50. This leaves thousands -50 that aren't on the list. One of these thousands -50 dies and it's a 'big miss'? Bollocks. It's simple arithmetic.

    Thoughts and opinions on the death list 2019

    Christ on a bike, no personal offence meant, but every time, every single time, somebody half noteworthy (and any soap star is at best only half noteworthy) carks it somebody calls it a 'miss by the committee'. There are thousands, literally (the real meaning, not the snowflake version) thousands of famous people who 'could' be on the list. from which they pick 50, leaving thousands -50 that weren't picked. Picking some half famous bod that 'did' die and calling it a 'miss' is really getting on my tits. *genuinely gooseberry, this isn't a dig at you, more that it happens a lot and this was just the latest.

    That Portillo Moment

    I might well agree with you and I'm old enough to remember that Tesco bitch Shirley Porter. Trouble is (simplistically, as I see it, which let's be fair is everything) it takes power to change the law to PR and you just used the current system to gain that power. Topically for the time of year, a bit like Turkeys voting for xmas.
  5. Any of them obitable and the early part of that timeframe?

    The Dead of 2019

    This is also my response Creepoid when you complain that I liked Toasts response. Get my retaliation in pre-emptively mate . I'd have thought (in fact I do think) it was (is) perfectly acceptable to have a catch all thread for deaths in a given year, it's a one stop shop for folks that could appear anywhere else on the site, especially considering the ongoing wars (for want of a better term) about who goes in what thread and the possible subsequent trouble in finding them (particularly if not named or incorrectly spelled and so on). Post it wherever it falls in the disparate thread conventions AND here then it's easy to find.

    A Joke

    Can we have a sweep? I''ll go with 44, extremely intelligent, but bored and either drunk or getting a personal laugh from pretending to be.

    That Portillo Moment

    You keep tabs this close on a constituency 300 or so miles south of you? Do you do this for all of them? or even just the marginal ones? I'm impressed by your political engagement now if I wasn't before, which to be honest, I was.
  12. Wondered what that funny smell was. Occasionally play in pool competitions in BasVegas, so I know how to get there (and out again).

    Prince Andrew

    https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2019/dec/01/prince-andrew-jeffrey-epstein-us-authorities Why Andy shouldn't talk to the US authorities. On the other hand perhaps we could do a deal in the interests of the victims of diplomatic immunity and swap him for that Anne Sacoolas.
