Clive James

Recommended Posts

I am surprised they agreed to operate given his very poor general health.I don't think he will see 80 now.After such a huge operation that has affected his speech and his eulyesight failing I reckon he will slowly lose his resolve.Chemo if he needs any will almost certainly finish him off now.His recent surgery also sounds like a major infection risk.

He might have died happier if he hadn't lasted till the end of season 8.

His, “final column“.

If he sees 2020, I think nearly every DDP contender will pick him imo.

Clive James is reading himself in this unexpected Guardian article:

No health news at all. So I guess the window of scoring for him in 2019 is closed.

Don’t count your chickens just yet, a simple cold could see him off now

They usually are, despite global warming’s best efforts

This article might give us insight on his health. If somebody is willing to pay the subscription for this website.

Clive James has a new, somewhat rambling article up on prospect  magazine, not really anything on health, except that everything is sort of normal:

RIP to a great bloke who faced his demise with good humour and grit.  

 

I'm very happy that he lasted as long as he did (becoming another legend of the Deathlist!)

 

He got to 80 and had cancer for nearly a decade and got to watch the end of Game Of Thrones ( which he probably regretted!)

RIP Clive James. Always a good read, even when pushing a cause I disagreed with. Did bloody well to last this long.

Yes RIP Clive - feels like an old friend that I'd lost touch with has died.
