Hope she never dies. Could do without the sycophantic media coverage

 

 

If she's immortal a cult will eventually become a world wide religion

 

Surely the gushing obits would be less sycophantic than the other options

Maryport is a disappointment for which there is no cure, but the annual Deathrace thread hereabouts provides welcome distraction.maryport2if5.jpg

You'll get sick of endlessly hearing blue birds over white cliffs for a couple of days, but as long as you avoid the Mail and the Express it shouldn't be too painful. Be interesting to see if HRH Liz2 goes to the funeral.

you'll have to put up with a lot of that for her 100th birthday  next year anyway so if she goes before then we'd be killing 2 bluebirds with one stone , as it were

Good point. How about Liz and Phil the Greek pop round to deliver the 100th birthday telegram. The shock surprise makes Vera keel over, Phil laughs so much he chokes on a vol-au-vent and then Liz leads the press corps in a rendition of We'll Meet Again. Just a thought.

Indeed and in paying tribute to the recently departed Ms Lynn Liz accidently says "that cow had nothing on me!"

I was watching the national news tonight with the volume on low, Vera Lynn appears and I thought - "Yes - she's dead!" and assumed that she was deathlist's first death of 2017. Then realized it was to inform us there was to be a 100th birthday celebration of her life. I felt kind of disappointed!
