One who'll doubtless prompt debate because he's a borderline FFBI/obitable in his own right case. 

 

Henry Marsh - terminally ill doctor now front and centre of the right to die debate - https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-56597771

Wouldn`t say he is purely famous for being ill. Regarded as one of the top neurosurgeons in Europe.CBE for his work two published memoirs multiple appearances on  mainstream Television related to his work even was a guest on Desert Island Discs.All this before he had terminal cancer and came out in favor of assisted dying.He is not a celebrity as such but not  purely FFBI either although that is heightening his profile from I would say an acceptable level of notability for most dead pools around. He is certainly different from the likes of Paul Lamb Tony Nicklinson and Noel Conway who had no public profile before they started campaigning.

Sean speaks sense - 2022 possibles list at MPFC Towers is duly stoked!

Good one, but I'd say the word "leading brain surgeon" qualifies him. If he were "just some doctor" he would not (But of course, in my heart, every doctor is great).

 

 

Mengele says thanks, he was beginning to wonder if anyone still appreciated him!

Yeah, Marsh had some notability - not just in his profession, but as a semi-regular TV/radio expert and he had a TV documentary about his career about 15-20 years ago iirc. I think if you can go "oh yeah that guy" they pass the FFBI bar (unless its oh yeah that FFBI guy of course!).

I don't know if there is something he's not telling us. But Paul Simon just sold all of his music to Sony for an undisclosed sum.

 

He will be 80 in October.

 

He's not telling us how much he got. Likely way less than Dylan ($ 300 million) but probs Neil Young's $150 million deal might be a good guide (bigger hits for Simon but Young's as prolific as fuck so they likely even out). Story, incl. "undisclosed sum" confirmation: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-56601086

 

 

 

Oh aye, and the short, chubster plays Glasto ten years back and forgets to iron the skin on his elbows before fluttering his bingo wings in front of unsuspecting festival goers.

I didn't realize that former chairman of Volkswagen, the predecessor of Ferdinand Piech, Carl Hahn is still alive at 94:

As the mastermind behind the VW Golf he is likely obitable.

(However, the latest picture showed him still standing upright.)

Jack Hanna has Alzheimer’s

Just saw the news, apparently going downhill quickly. If he gets to 2022, would he get a UK obit?

I already see three suitable UK media outfits giving him coverage right now, The Sun, The Independent and Yahoo. So the answer is 100% yes.

Think Derek Draper is notable enough to get on the list? He was a political advisor for Labour in the late 90's.

 

He is Kate Garraway's husband who was put in a coma last year due to Covid and there's been news about him every other day since because Kate can't keep her mouth shut. Today he came home and now needs carers 24/7.

Wait for the book launch over the summer about how she coped, and her mundane advice to others on how they can deal with, and overcome, the trauma she and her family have had. £9.99 and a free facemask. Amazon might offer a discount.

Draper was a real piece of work when he worked in Downing Street. Apparently, he can't move which must be torture for him.

I knew who he was before he was ill and he was notable before he married Garraway.He would have got a QO easily before his marriage.

 

I wonder if Draper is coming home on end of life care.The poor guy has suffered so much damage maybe he has gone home as nothing else can be done for him medically.

 

Maybe worth noting that today Garraway said he could not speak which he could in the recent documentary (albeit not brilliantly but you could understand him and he clearly knows more than I or perhaps most people thought) meaning he may well have deteriorated further.

https://www.womanandhome.com/life/royal-news/the-mysterious-disappearance-of-queens-working-royal-leaves-just-11-serving/

 

There is increasing  speculation and rumour about the health of the Queens 84 year old  cousin  Princess  Alexandra  who according to this article  has almost vanished  from royal  duties without explanation. 

A spokesperson  for the royal family  has denied there is any serious  health issue  but word on the royal grapevine  is that  Princess Alexandra  is not in good shape at all.

I will post in royal thread  also as not everybody  reads every thread  but I definitely think Princess Alexandra is someone deadpoolers should  keep an eye on.

Elton john and Jason mow 

 

Don't know anything about Jason Mow, but Elton John seems to be doing just fine based on what he looked like on Demi Lovato's documentary.

So, he's creeping into some lists - Joey's on his case - but just a reminder that Ronald Blythe (b. 1922) still lives, breathes and counts as obitable.
