In reply to Mark123: Sad news. Reminds me of Hillary's epic comment to him:

"Well George, we knocked the bastard off".

I know Jan Morris is still alive, are there any others?

In reply to Mark123:

I noticed the announcement on the BBC website and the obituary in the Guardian today.

I bumped into him last year at the nursing home (my mother-in-law died there 2 weeks ago) and only realised who he was when I saw his name on his room.
