Tuesday’s answers

Monday’s questions were:

1. What is the morse code  for SOS?

2. What the the first mammal to be cloned from an adult cell named?

3. Who said: “In my view the welfare state was not conceived for the middle class and yet it is increasingly captured by them.”?

4. Who wrote See Ya Simon?

5.  Where is this World Heritage site, which is , from memory but open to correction,  the southernmost  northern most date palm grove in the World?

At time of writing (9am) no-one has got all five answers but that’s because 3 was hard and I got my directions mixed up with 5 – it’s northern most not southern.

I offer an electronic posey to all who tried by way of apology.

Tuesday’s answers follow the break:

1. dot, dot, dot, dash, dash, dash, dot, dot, dot.

2. Dolly the sheep.

3. Jenny Shipley. 

4. David Hill.

5. Elche (or Elx if you prefer Catalan) in Alicante, Spain. It’s the largest palm grove in Europe, and as I said in the question I think it’s also the most northerly location of date palms.

    I’m interested in the Jenny Shipley quote. What I usually do is to just google the text, that usually finds a quote pretty quickly. In this case it didn’t, which implies whatever speech or event she said that in isn’t online. Do you happen to know where she said that, and why it isn’t online?

    Just seems unusual, and perhaps indicates a failing in the National Party website of some sort – if key speeches and utterances aren’t online and searchable, then surely there’s an opportunity missed?

    Paul – I found it in a book which is at home(I’m in Singapore so can’t check) but from memory the book is Strong Language edited by Jim Sullivan (it’s a collection of NZ quotes).

    I think it said it was from her valedictory speech, if so it will be in Hansard.
