Latest News: It’s Time for Gough

Picture of Gough Whitlam 20th Oct 2014

Gough Whitlam, former Australian Prime Minister, has passed away at the ripe old age of 98 to give DeathList 2014 its eight success of the year. Whitlam took the Australian Labor Party to power in 1972 for the first time in 23 years and won a second election in 1974 but lost a further challenge in 1975. Whitlam was making his second appearance on DeathList, this year securing the number six slot.


The DeathList 2014

Once again the DeathList committee, using the invaluable research provided by the forum members, has drawn up its list of 50 celebrities most likely to die in 2014. The DeathList rules require candidates to be famous enough such that their death is expected to be reported by the UK media, however they cannot be famous solely for the fact they are likely to die in the near future. Also, only half of the candidates can have appeared on the previous year’s list. DeathList 2013 had a powerful finish, finally ending with a total of 13 successes. With four of the top five passing in 2013, including DeathList ambassador, Ronnie Biggs, the 2014 list sees some new blood coming in and some old favourites moving up. Will the furious pace of December carry over into the new year?
