I’m not as clued up as a should be on world politics but I noticed today that the British Consulate-General in Jerusalem is called Richard Makepeace. Not since the birth of Bob the Builder has a person’s career been so predetermined. UPDATE: After posting this on Facebook, the following people were also pointed out to me. Lord Justice Laws – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Laws_(judge) Hans Lineweaver – Who has a graph (the Lineweaver-Burk Plot) named after him. UPDATE 2: Apparently the head of Waitrose is called Mark Price, presumably he started out stacking shelves.
