  4. Q. Who won the French presidential election in May and whom did they beat in the run-off?

  8. Q. What was the change to the voting age resulting from the Representation of the People Act in 1969?
  9. Q. Which Prime Minister won the largest parliamentary majority since the Second World War (and a bonus point for the year)
  10. Q. And finally, the current electoral hopefuls (or winners/losers by the time you read this) have a range of mind-numbing soundbites and slogans but who coined the phrase “you’ve never had it so good” or more accurately “most of our people have never had it so good”?
