    2. Answer not appropriate for a nice blog like this.
    3. Geoffrey.
    4. Devon. (I quite like Bernard Cornwall too.)
    5. Saxon for Londinium I guess, so London.

    Who was the finance minister and later prime minsiter who was mocked for urging smokers hit by a hike in tobacco taxes to try his favourite sweet, acid drops, as a substitute?
    Who was the colonial treasurer who had to resign because he was declared personally bankrupt, made a return to politics and eventually became prime minister?
    Sir Robert Muldoon held the finance portfolio and the prime ministership at the same time, now regarded as a no-no. But he wasn’t the first. At least four other PMs did the same. Can you name them? {I think this is a two or three pointer}.
