Dick Cheney will be 79 at the start of the year, he has had five heart attacks in the past. If he has a sixth at that age surely that’ll be enough to send him down!

He's also coming up on having lived for 7 years and 7 months with a heart transplant.

Maybe wait until he has lasted 9 years and 11 months.

I heard they just removed it.  He wasn't using it anyway.

The Sun today reported that Thomas Weir of Milton Keynes is trying to locate Babestation star "Laura Jones" because he wants to leave his money to her. Thomas is 50, they're non-specific about what's wrong, but he's ill for sure. q/o chances better in the low-hanger dead pool league, I guess.

Shamima Begum at risk of hanging, after the death of her kids and IS husband. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-50137470

 

Seriously, is anyone working on the stage musical yet?

 

Just askin' - I'm imagining a showstopper of a song up there with Kim Jong-Il's tearful rendering of I'm so Ronery in Team America World Police

Clive Barker looks to be wheelchair bound now and he looks frail. Can't see him making 70.

He's been in poor health for years. In his 50s he developed a throat condition which meant he was only getting in about 20% of the air he tried to breath and needed a massive operation. Then a few years ago he got septicemia which led to toxic shock in his major organs and nearly died. Barely recovered from that and iirc he's had heart problems since.

So, there's crowdfunding underway to kill Gina Miller

 

Tbh I think she'll survive because she's such an obvious target she probably enjoys some protection - but I'm wondering if we'll have another Jo Cox case before the Brexit shitstorm ceases

Well if it’s Ely I’m going to look like an idiot but I’m going to try Wells.

 

To be honest that was my guess when I read your question (being smallest city) and I have looked at them on Wikipedia but I have no idea what the 13th tier of the English football pyramid is so don’t know if I’m right or not.

Sent me on a jag trying to work out if there's a single team affiliated to the English footballing pyramid that plays inside the actual City of London. And as far as I can tell, no there isn't.

Ely are in the ninth tier and Wells are in the tenth.

I think it might be Salisbury. Were much higher up the pyramid but had financial issues so mightve been demoted?

The reformed Salisbury FC (the previous incarnation were liquidated) are in the Southern League Premier division, or the seventh tier.

Okay after looking at the list of cities in England it can only be one of

Lichfield

Ripon

Westminster 

 

All the others have a non-league team I've heard of.

Yes, Ripon City FC, currently showcasing their skills in division two of the West Yorkshire League, is the correct answer.
