Guess the (shadowy or should that be shady) politician quiz

This quiz on the BBC was worth 5 minutes of my time.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-40742706

But I only scored 8/16 still fun though.

That's impressive @Steve, considering Nicola Sturgeon or Alex Salmond weren't in it Wink

Or more to the point too shady as you'd never be able to make out even a silhouette.  Grin

Nothing shameful about that @Minivanman it's 2 more than me and one more than @Mook  which puts you in the lead ( where is everyone Sunday service finished hours ago? ) as I said I there was a couple in the quiz I never even knew.

Re: Guess the (shadowy or should that be shady) politician quiz

The scores provided so far are in the middle range so one has to ask why is that? Is it because some of the politicians we saw aren’t or haven't been in the news as often as some, like May, Blair, Osborne etc.

Or, what they say isn't important enough for us to register them in out minds.


Or, because we actually don’t care enough to bother remembering!

6, which reflects pretty well my interest in politics.

6/16, basically the obvious ones.

 

I hadn't heard of many of the rest them so was hardly going to recognise their silhouette...
