I’ve corralled some of Britain’s top experts in various fields to set a hypothetical “MPs quiz” for tomorrow’s Weekend FT’s magazine.
The 20 quizmasters include Michael Boyce, Richard Dawkins, Will Self, Bill Bryson, Jeremy Paxman and Lord Lamont. The idea was to come up with a test which all MPs should be able to answer to enter the House of Commons. You may or may not find it a bit rigorous.
You can already find the quiz online. Feel free to add any questions you think have been missed out.
We’ve excluded some real corkers, my favourite being Paxman’s astringent:
“Anyone who wants to spend their life passing laws to tell the rest of us how to behave ought, automatically, to be disqualified from doing so.” Discuss.
