1 0 0

1. Chief ranger and keeper of Hyde Park and St James’s Park. Duke of Wellington, prime minister 1834. “And he remained commander-in-chief,” said Graham Kirby.

2. President of the International Lawn Tennis Club of Great Britain. Arthur Balfour, prime minister 1902-05 (and then foreign secretary 1916-19, when he was author of the Balfour Declaration). “I would recommend something similar for David Cameron.” Another from Graham Kirby.
