You chaps are fast! I just saw it on a breaking news alert, too.

Some of the people here are damn fast. I'm always impressed.

I feel bad, soon as I saw it I bolted to here :lol:

me too. 

I  listen to the news every 12:00am on 1010 WINS. I never expected something like this.

I was hoping that I could break the record for number of former living presidents. Looks like that is not going to happen.

What a contrast to the current President. The tributes to him in coming days will put Trump to shame.

Does his death count as a November or December death since it was nov 30 in the USA but dec 1 here in UK.If it counts as a December death it means we've had hits in 11 of 12 months which is a record I think.

I count it as November, since he died in The United States.

I've just realised George Bush is the 4th republican President in a row to die following the deaths of Ford Reagan and Nixon. The last Democrat President to die was Lyndon Johnson in January 1973, so I guess we're overdue one.

Feel kind of meh about his death tbh. Better than your Republican politicians today, but still has done a lot of shitty things. Still, hope his family finds peace. RIP

I will just leave this here, because in the case of Bush, one of his final acts as President shows what a gentleman he is in defeat.

So just woke up to this news. As I'm sure many more of our UK posters will in the next couple of hours.

 

Pretty impressed he managed to make it this long, giving his ongoing health concerns. RIP A president from the days when presidents at least gave the impression of knowing what they were doing. Only Obama since him has managed that. Clinton couldn't keep it in his pants, Bush Jr couldn't string a sentence together without putting his foot in his mouth and Trump's a lunatic.

Oh.

I thought he would be the next DL No.1. Now I think it could be Prince Philip.

He cheated in his marriage like a gentleman. He grabbed ass like a gentleman. He was a war criminal gentleman.

Now the Gentleman is my 14th hit. good riddance!

Yeah, I remember one of those women who said he touched her butt at a photo op. She rambled on about how she can't sleep at night and she still sobs uncontrollably. :rolleyes:

Deffo a December death. The Deathlist is based in the UK. (The death has to be worthy of mention in the UK media.) The Deathlist for 2018 ends at midnight UK 31st December. If somebody on the list dies three hours later in America that will just be a good start fror 2019.

The front page seems to be counting it as UK Time (since it was the early hours of December 1st our time)

Well, missed that one for the Advent Avalanche, he he, though I think local time might have affected it, then everyone would argue over the Hewlett rule and it would go on and on.

 

Anyway, I have some updating to do and claims to be made where I picked him. Far as the DL is concerned, you do get something for a pair in this game...

Bushwhacked? (Sorry if it's already been used)

Surely it’s got to be “two in the bush” ?
