Someone on here - possibly a guest - was foretelling the imminent demise of old Denis, as he hadn't appeared in the media for a year. Well, he's not appeared here, but a journalist from The Guardian has visited him in recent days.

 

 

At 97, he is obviously not as physically robust as people remember him – as with one of his successors at No 11, Lord Lawson, one sees a slimmer version – but still mentally alert, a genial host, who proudly showed us (I was with Alun Evans, incoming British Academy chief executive) around various studies, and an impressive collection of books, paintings and photographs. There were fond references to Edna, his late wife, and to his three children, with whom he keeps in close touch.

One of the secrets of longevity is said to be an active interest in life. Over coffee, his helper, Carol, gave him the latest Hansard – “very good debates in the Lords, you know”. There was an amusing moment when he opened his Coutts bank statement in front of us: “Oh, £10.75 in credit I see… ”

 

No change there then.

Are we really gonna classify someone who reads Hansard for enjoyment as "alive"?

Forget Hansard, he reads, as a rule that's a sign of intelligent life!

Maryport is a disappointment for which there is no cure, but the annual Deathrace thread hereabouts provides welcome distraction.

my mum has like 2000 books probably. if not more. so..... I'm afraid your rules might need to be re-located to your crypto-cumbrian crevice. =/

Erm..... edit to add: If he likes the House of Lords so much why doesn't he speak out against Ed Miliband's policy to scrap it? He is a Lord himself for fuck's sake! Where's the intelligence there?

Apparently he was

 

Chancellor of Exeter in the 1970s

Depleted Leader of the Labour Party in the 1980s

 

Nice to see the original People's Eyebrows are still holding up fairly well
