It would be interesting to know, how many of the English members of parliament are actually English!!!

Not many, judging by their surnames :-|


GHeather Report 30 Mar 2013 18:02

Of course, they have to give their ok to it, they don't want anything strange etc... found, or it will be front page headlines... :-)

If the idea of doing ALL the MPs family research is not possible, then pick out about 80, or perhaps more...


GHeather Report 30 Mar 2013 17:58

I think they should get this idea about MPs going... people would love to watch it! Bring it on... my idea, do I get anything? A House of Commons Mug, or tea cosy perhaps. ;-)

Tell us TessABTF, let us know...

That would be interesting ....
However, recent research has shown that I may be related to a politician that I DO NOT admire.

Would be worried if they did his ancestry, just in case it proves a link.

(But I am keeping his name a secret) :-P

Good point LollyWS.


GHeather Report 30 Mar 2013 17:39

Thanks for your replies, some are funny! :-)


LollyWithSprinklez Report 30 Mar 2013 17:25

Think that would be interesting, I wonder if it has been broached and how many would be willing to stand that kind of scrutiny


maggiewinchester Report 30 Mar 2013 17:12

It would be intresting to see how their ancestors made their millions - by hard work, ripping people off or chance

George Galloway - is he really noble?
IDS - bit of an ethnic mix that might be interesting.
Michael Gove - was he really from a poor family?
John Redwood - any proof he is a Vulcan?
Ed Balls - any proof he is a love child of John Meynard Keynes?
George Osborne and Nick Clegg - any sign of intelligence?

Another programme I would like to see on T.V. is the family connections of ALL our MPs, on both side of the House, I bet that would be very interesting!
