i find this web site mean towards the people who you are predicting to die and their families. how would any of you like to log on to a web site and see that people were predicting you of a relation of yours to die by the end of the year. he is alive and well and has a years left in him.

Indeed he is... and a fervent writer of letters to the Telegraph. He may have retired many years ago but hopefully he hasn't lost the irreverent sense of humour which is traditional among Fleet Street writers. Why not ask him if he minds? I'd be very suprised if he did.

Well as I have said before, the site's primary objective is not to offend however by its nature it may offend some. Unfortunately a site predicting celebrities we think will survive the whole year just doesnt quite have the same attraction.

Chapman has only appeared on the list once - in 2001 - so in fact we now also have full confidence in his longevity and I wish him all the very best.

Dear Reaper

I don't think Cowboy Ronnie is on message with the "let's not offend anyone" mission statement

I suspect he's bitter that none of his family will ever be famous enough to have their deaths speculated on. Assuming any of them still talk to him.

I have to say it's all to easy these days to find out, unless of course you are a luddite, but I have to confess I don't know who the hell he is either.

He's a former defence/Whitehall correspondent in Fleet St. Now in his late 80s and extremely fit and active. I think he must have been a bit of a 'wild card' entry, unless the Death List Committee had an inside steer on a particularly nasty bout of influenza he was suffering at the time. Maybe a heart by-pass? However, he is well enough to get himself extremely vexed about domestic security matters and pen stiff letters to the Daily Telegraph.

It's good to see a journalist in the list. There were three or four prominent journo deaths last year:
Richard Stott, Ian Wooldridge and Nigel Dempster, not to mention Bill Deedes.

Among those to watch out for in future are Lord Rees-Mogg, Sir Harold Evans and Keith Waterhouse.

He looks spritely in that clip. I'd drop him, along with Lee, King, Wallach, Seve and Havel.

This thread is really quiet.

His last book was published in 2009 but he is most famous because of his association with Peter Wright and the Spycatcher affair
