The 24th of January - an interesting date

Hain Day is also the day Mandelson resigned in 2001. And, oddly enough, when Leon Brittan resigned in 1986, so maybe 2008 will see another ministerial scalp, on the basis of a closing of seven years in the gap between resignations.

And the day Caligula was assassinated.

Really? That's more than interesting. It's amazing what can be done with dates. I agree with Paul here too.

Anon - Will investigate.

Paul, James - One does what on can. Thank you.

I agree with Newmania. Where do you find the spare time to dig all this stuff up from? If I didn't know better I'd say you worked for Croydon Council!
