On Twitter yesterday some people lost the plot completely with rumours flying around that Her Maj had died.
With far too many people stating 2016 was a bad year for deaths, a few sensible people pointed out that commonsense has been the main victim of 2016! 2016 certainly is no patch on 2004 and the tsunami or the years of the Black Death or 1939 - 45.

And here a link to the More or Less (Radio 4)/ BBC Obituary Service info saying that 46% more 'people of note' (their phrase) died in 2016 than in any year before.
