Icelandic Prime Minister Geir Haarde has called an early general election, he will not stand again because a malignant tumour has been found on his throat.


That's caused by the British Government being stuck in it for the last six months I'd imagine...


The person thought most likely to replace Geir Haarde, Social Democrat Ingibjorg Gisladottir, will not be taking the job as she is receiving treatment for a brain tumour.

That means Johanna Sigurdardottir will become Iceland's leader, the word's first openly gay Prime Minister.

Johanna Sigurdardottir first lesbian head of state, Barrack Obama first US black president, Patrick Harvie first bisexual leader of any British political party.. it's certainly been a good 3 months for minority groups... let's hope it continues... If Mel Gibson dropped dead I think that'd be the cherry on the top of the cake...

or we could just settle for his father, Hutton who's going on 91...... you have to wonder where Mel's aggressive, hateful comments come from ;)

If we still had an existent 'who's gonna die in 2009?' thread the link might be better there. Not exactly political leaders but we've got to take on board the Tamil Tigers. Hopelessly penned in and on the brink of military defeat, there are leaders in the organisation facing either imminent death in the final battles, or a very uncertain future - including possible death - if caught alive. And they'd be mentioned on the BBC foreign news pages if nowhere else. I know the next CPDP is a long way off, but there are theme team points to be had, or summat.

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

Ingibjorg Gisladottir has resigned from her post, saying she cannot continue to lead her party as her illness is more serious than first thought.

Things fall apart. It's scientific

Janet Jagan has died aged 88.

President of Guyana from 1997 to 1999. She was their first white and first female president. It's probably a fairly safe bet she was their first Jewish President also!

I went to see Il Divo, a biopic about 90-year-old thrice-Italian PM Giulio Andreotti, and surprisingly can find no mention of him on the DL.

From his wiki page:

On the 2nd of November 2008, Andreotti appeared on a current affairs magazine programme, 'Questa Domenica', on the Berlusconi-owned Italian television station, 'Mediaset', discussing amongst other things the film, 'Il Divo'. During his appearance, he appeared to suffer health difficulties and there was speculation he had suffered a stroke. Andreotti was twice posed a question and simply failed to respond, although his eyes remained open. The station cut to an advertisement break, following which Andreotti reappeared, in seemingly better condition. The incident was presented to the viewer as a consequence of technical difficulties.

No, but if her parents were to rise from the dead I would ask them why they decided to give their child this name.

Roh Moo-hyun

The former president of South Korea has apparently committed suicide by jumping off the top of a mountain. He was in office from 2002 to 2008.

"Mr Roh’s death came as prosecutors planned to decide next week whether to take legal action against him. Mr Roh had admitted that his wife had taken money from a businessman to pay family debts. He had issued a public apology, but the scandal has tarnished his otherwise clean image."

That's a bit drastic isn't it? Over-reaction?
Considering his crime isn't much worse than our own politicians (and every other country's politicians). Yet our bunch seem to be unscathed.

No, doesn't count. Sorry.

It's been a fairly dry spell the last several weeks. The last major celebrity to die is Chuck Daly (legendary NBA coach). But even his fame is somewhat questionable. I doubt he's known in the UK.

In the last several months, the following celebrities teased us with the media claiming they had "days" to live and that their deaths were imminent...

Patrick Swayze
Farrah Fawcett
Ed McMahon
Stephen Hawking
Gene Autry
Jerry Lewis
Dave Gahan (Depeche Mode)

Yet all of them are still alive and well (maybe not well, but still holding on).

FINALLY, we would break this long-@rse dry spell if Margaret Thatcher would just freakin' croke. C'mon Thatcher, what's taking you so long? :banghead:

Okay, I don't give a s*** about all these former leaders of some obscure third world country (okay, Israel is NOT a third would country) dying. we need to have somebody like Fidel Castro or Kim Jong il or Margaret Thatcher croaking. That would make my day. I'm getting impatient here with the lack of celebrity deaths for the past several weeks.

And before any of you get all sanctimonious on me, c'mon, Castro, Jong il, and Thatcher are all scum anyway so it's not like the world will be a worst off place if they die. hell, the world would be a much better place if they died!
