Mind the newly improved unique bonus. There's centenarians worth 8 points this year.

I wholeheartedly approve as I'm sure you  have discerned already! The changes to unique picks are a brilliant move by the Derby Dead pool committee.

Much as I love praise, that should go to Reptile. That was his baby!

Ronald Atkins and Michael Shaw gone within a fortnight. If everything comes in threes Patrick Duffy must be sh***ing himself right now !

I expect both to go this year. 3 MPs being over 100 at the same time was a record which is unlikely to be repeated for a long while 

Following Shaws death it can't  happen again before July 4, 2024, if Duffy, Jill Knight and Eric Cockeram are all still alive on that date, which is unlikely I'd have thought. Before Ronald Atkins turned 100 in June 2016 there were no centenarian former MPs since Bert Hazell died in january 2009 so to have 3 at one time might be a one off..

Suspect it won't be repeated until the 2030s at the earliest.

Possibly the best heading/subheading I’ve ever seen on an obit.

Constantino Chiwenga survives another one!

Moyo was the highest ranked diplomat in the country, he was also the officer who announced on TV Mugabe had been ousted in 2017. Here's a blast from the past...

Must have been an exceedingly wealthy guy as I've just learnt that he had a home in the ultra luxurious community of Albany, rubbing shoulders with the likes of Tiger Woods and Justin Timberlake.

So it's no deal for Rowland. He'll be stuck at customs for a while on his journey to the afterlife. And don't even think about taking a ham sandwich for the journey.
