New developments[edit]

Seems he may not have committed suicide after all: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-17076512 Antarctic-adventurer (talk) 09:52, 18 February 2012 (UTC)

Any updates?[edit]

Might be worth establishing career history since 1998. 109.154.19.165 (talk) 17:09, 2 March 2012 (UTC)

Bias?[edit]

I would question whether the wording is POV, for instance "lying injured in hospital following the attack on her by her husband. The police took her from the hospital in order for her to defend her hard won custody and she was successful. There followed a sustained campaign by her sister and brother-in-law to obtain custody".203.184.41.226 (talk) 05:29, 10 December 2012 (UTC)

Legally dead[edit]

There is considerable confusion regarding the earl's father. The statement: "Lord Lucan was not declared legally dead by the High Court in 1999. Probate was granted on 11 August 1999 and is not an official confirmation of death for all purposes; nor does it operate as if it were a death certificate. The grant is valid for probate purposes only and is a technical requirement for the administration of the subject's estate" is wrong and contradictory.

The High Court did indeed declare Lucan dead - the exact wording being "Be it known that the Right Honourable Richard John Bingham, Seventh Earl of Lucan, of 72a Elizabeth Street, London SW1, died on or since the 8th day of November 1974". Probate is not granted unless the court accepts and declares that the testator is dead. Probate and death certificates are two different things, and ought not be compared.203.184.41.226 (talk) 05:33, 10 December 2012 (UTC)

8th[edit]

George is welcome to style himself 8th. Earl. This has little significance after 1999. Response from George: the title is Irish and had no significance as regards the UK since 1922.

That's an obviously ridiculous statement as until the reform of the House of Lords it gave a seat in the House of Lords. PhilomenaO'M (talk) 06:53, 9 June 2014 (UTC)
