    Aha, was a guess, but assumed it wasn't an amphibian fanny.

    My question: Which British PM is, to this day, the last PM to have died whilst still in office?

    Nope, although he was the only PM to be assassinated

    EDIT - Red Sparrows correct, your turn

    I thought Perceval, but that was only cos of the nature of his death.

    Continuing the theme: Where was the Duke of Wellington born? (This could be very easy or hard, I'm not sure).

    Number 1, London?

    Edit: I know that's his address as an adult when he was PM, and possibly the best address it is possible to have :)

    The Iron Duke. What a guy.

    Moment of historical geekness - akin, for me, to Berlin meeting Akhmatova, if perhaps not as enlightening:



    Goya, 1812.

    Who is the only politician to have held the posts of Prime Minister, Chancellor of the Exchequer, Foreign Secretary and Home Secretary?
  • Deleted user 14 December 2012 14:21:43
    Churchill is the obvious answer but I'll go for Disraeli
