Abbul Azizn't.

The new heir to the Saudi throne, Crown Prince Nayif bin Abd al-Aziz, may have a battle on his hands to ever live long enough to get the top job:


Quote

Nayif had earlier travelled to Morocco on "special leave", but within a week he was reported to be in Cleveland, Ohio for medical tests which were later described as routine [ :huh: Of possible note, Cleveland, Ohio is where the late Pope Shenouda III spent a lot of time having "routine check ups"],. Shortly after that he went to Algeria, where he spent the remainder of his time away. Nayif has been unwell before, and although his cancer seems to have been in relapse for several years, his condition has markedly deteriorated in recent months. Even before the trip away, Defense Minister Salman had been undertaking most of Nayif's duties, and the unnanounced stay at an overseas medical clinic, combined with his frail and haggard appearance, have only added to worries over his health.

Sometimes when we see the eyes- those horrible times when we see the eyes,eyes that ... that have no soul - then we know a darkness.

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.

Giulio Andreotti is in hospital, suffering from heart problems.

Quote

Andreotti, 93, was "lucid and conscious" in intensive care at Rome's Policlinico Gemelli hospital, his secretary Patrizia Chilelli told reporters at the hospital. While he showed a gradual improvement over the course of the day, his prognosis remained "reserved," the hospital said late Thursday.

Il Divo is an absolutely fantastic movie, although I do speak as a guinea so it might be confusing for people who need to ask "what has a skateboard got to do with Italian politics at the turn of the 90s?" every ten minutes.

The UKs oldest ex MP James Allason has died at 98 . This leaves former deputy labour leader Ted Short as oldest ex MP as well as the oldest member of the House of Lords

Bit surprised Notwaguest hasn't already reported this but maybe because it's not right on the top of the Deaths in 2012 page and it's too difficult for him to scroll down 6 days but Ted Short is no longer the oldest ex-MP - http://www.lep.co.uk...-dies-1-4530958

Noit only was he the oldest ex MP but he was the oldest member of the House of Lords. Pirate radio fans will not mourn his demise though- he was the cabinet minister responsible for closing them down.

His death leaves only 2 ex cabinet ministers over the age of 90- Lord Carrington and Denis Healey.And Healeys not been looking too well lately...

While other reports are coming in that he died in 1996 aged 77, while number 1 on the deathlist. Hmm, who to believe? Legendary political reporter 'Guest' or the rest of the entire media in the history of the world ever... without doubt, it's got to be 'Guest'.

I can in one word. 'Wikipedia'.

I'd plump for a more reliable source in future.
This is true my form is something odd,
But blaming me is blaming God;
Could I create myself anew
I would not fail in pleasing you.
