Quite a few people have asked me for the answer to the quiz question – which member of the Beatleshas the same first name as three Labour Prime Ministers.
The answer is – Paul McCartney.
His full name is James Paul McCartney and the Labour Prime Ministers are Ramsay Macdonald (actually James Ramsay Macdonald), Harold Wilson (real name James Harold Wilson) and Gordon Brown – or James Gordon Brown as he was christened.
Interestingly the obvious name – James Callaghan – doesn’t apply as his real name was Leonard James Callaghan.
Next question – name the three leaders of any of the three main British political parties since 1945 to be called Jeremy!
