16) Is he a politician? Yes!

As said earlier, I should be willing to accept this for the definite answer if it were question and answer 20. Since there are still four questions left, we could continue for the name of the politician in question, but that would then create an ambiguity in proclaiming the victor.

The actual politician I had in mind was senator Jobsworth who made an appearance in One of our Thursdays is missing. But the prefects from Shades of Grey would have served as well.

So ibborobb is now the answerer-elect.

Well done ibborobb





Wouldn't the answer to Q12 exclude the prefects?

Strictly speaking: yes; but remember my note on question 12: "As stated before, I'll accept a somewhat more generic answer than I originally had in mind, and in this respect the answers to questions 6 and 12 are essentially non-essential."

(Question 6 was on male or female).

Let me add that answering the first few questions was unexpectedly quite some fun, as various prejudices on politicians were coming by. I acknowledge that it was hardly possible to share that fun with the participants.
