Dead Pool Pundits Follow The News

howard halifaxThere are still a couple of weeks to go to get your names in for the August Dead Pool. The following is a list of names so far.

The most notable movers so far this month is former-family-favourite Rolf Harris, whose recent guilty conviction and subsequent reported suicide-watch in jail have led 5 quizgoers to back an August demise. This compares to one vote for July.

Another newsmaker who Edinburgh quizgoers are backing to die is the absolute theocratic monarch of the newly proclaimed Islamic state, Abu Bakr al-Bagdhadi. The ISIS leader is a new entry and has two backers so far.

My favourite so far this month is “Howard from The Halifax Adverts“. Bloody hell. You never know.

By the way, if you’re reading this and thinking, “where’s mine” – I only load up the slips I get which have a LEGIBLE email address. Others go in the bin, ken?

  1. Thanks Gill. Unfortunately, to take part in this you have to attend the quiz in person and enter via the official form rather than just sitting in Canada and pronouncing death on Bacon.

    Have a nice day!
