Most of the picks people were complaining at are still alive though...
Well this is great news on the DL-success front! Who woulda thought that after years of list-compiling, the selection committee might have actually got it right again this year?

there are so many people on the brink of death on this year's list - I reckon there will be 19 successes this year.
But I read Deedes' article in the Telegraph today - doesn't look like the article of a dying man.
I'm sticking with my prediction of 19 for the year.
Ambitious YIA, I think there are some certs on the list still to go but pushing 20 is a big ask.

he missed it by 2 weeks
I seem to remember Bill being heavily involved in Princess Di's anti-landmines crusade in the nineties. Now that he himself is in his nineties, there would be a certain symmetry involved if he pops off in September this year, the tenth anniversary of the Paris car crash which robbed us of the queen of hearts.
