Whose Baby Are You?

Do you know who was President/Prime Minister the year you were born- without looking it up? Apparently Matt Drudge doesn't. I was scornful until I tried to answer the question myself.

I guessed Eisenhower/Churchill. Wrong. I was a toddler when Eisenhower and Churchill came in. The answer is Truman/Attlee.

I'm pleasantly surprised. I idolise the post-war Labour Government (which gave us the Welfare State) and I don't like Churchill (whose post-war administration was the vanity project of a senile old man.) I'd far rather be a post-war Labour baby than a Churchill baby.

Yay- Attlee!
