Ralph Hall might be one to consider for next year.

He is a 91 year old Texas congressman who was defeated in the Republican primary earlier in the year.He had been a House member since 1980 and before that he had spent the previous 20 years in Texas politics. Seems precisely the type of guy who's job was his life and could go months after his term ending in January.

Eminent Serbian politician ans War Criminal Vojislav Seselj has metastatic colon cancer (that spread to his liver).

He was awaiting trial in The Hague, but can travel to Serbia to receive treatment, though at this stage I think it's a matter of when, not if... http://www.nytimes.c...ry-release.html

One to keep an eye on might be Welsh Labour MP Ann Clwyd (b.1937) she said she was standing down at the election next year but has since changed her mind and maybe reselected. I always think it would be nice to have a couple of serving MPs on the radar.

That's where by-elections come from children.
