Three Wise Men [..]: George Bush, Tony Blair and Prince Philip.
I'm impressed they managed that with a straight face ;-)
I admit that when I got to Prince P I couldn't hold it in any longer.
I'm still boggling at "Criticising religion is a "fundamental freedom of society", a leading international comedian affirmed last night," . . . Rowan Atkinson on the floor of Parliament?? At least here in the U.S., we keep up some sort of VENEER of respectability on our politicians . . . ;)

Rowan Atkinson isn't a politician. In the context of that article, he's a political activist.
At least here in the UK, we can read.
Those familiar with his better work (i.e not Mr Bean) would probably note that this isn't really a new direction for him either.
Regarding the respectability of US politicans' previous careers, I refer you to the cases of Mr Reagan and Mr Schwarzenegger. :)
Noooo -- I was being tongue-in-cheek, I *know* he's not a politician!
