15. Tessa Jowell

Recommended Posts

Thought I would create a thread for Tessa Jowell in the hope of helping her secure a place on next year`s list.Dame Tessa Jowell is a Member of the British House of Lords who spent 23 years in the House of Commons and served in the Cabinets of two Labour Prime Ministers (Blair and Brown) and even tried to run for mayor last year.She was knighted by the Queen in 2012.She has been in the political mainstream for over a quater of a century now and is (or was until recently) a regular panelist on Question Time and other Political programs.She revealed on her 70th Biirthday on September 17th (Or rather her daughter in law did ) that she had been diagnosed with brain cancer in May.The head of the brain tumor charity let slip that it was a "high grade brain tumour" making the chances of recovery pretty low.

Sean, did I ever tell you what my ex-MP said when he saw the SNP polls in 2015? "I'm set to Defcon Fucked!" Which, it turned out, he was. Anyhow, that's what Tessa is, now.

Another pic of her looking frail in the House of Lords, with nice bobble hat and what looks to be her own hair.

I think Tessa could look at home at a shamanic event in that photo.Just needs a drum and a spliff.Interesting trivia Tessa is very anti-smoking and hated sharing an office at Westminster in the 90`s with chainsmoking Glenda Jackson.Sounds like a  very mildly amusing sitcom.

Jowell has a debate lined up for January in the House of Lords.

 

 

Quote

Baroness Jowell to ask Her Majesty's Government what action they are taking to evaluate innovative cancer treatments and make them available through the National Health Service, and to raise life expectancy for cancer patients (Question for Short Debate, 90 minutes).

 

Can't think what inspired this. Last stand?

Actually I might have to amend my own shadow list to include her. She seems like a good pick.

Well, I don't think that her gig would be that interesting for deadpoolers. 

 

Even if she looks cheerful and relatively healthy in January, 2019 would still seem like a very long shot for her. And if she looks shite or has to cancel the gig for health reasons, that would just confirm that she is about to die in 2018, which is what most people already expect anyways.

I said in the chat: "one of Sean's threads is an official Deathlist thread - he'll be so happy!"

I wonder if she will mention or hint at being on the deathlist?  Only ronnie Biggs off the top of my head has acknowledged it.

Unfortunately she has not made any over optimistic statements to summon up images of Kathleen Turner, Michael Douglas and Danny DeVito..........
