    That's worrying, although I admit was a politics geek when I was 14.

    To be fair, I could only name the "major" cabinet positions (chancellor, foreign affairs, business, etc. - I have no idea who's in charge of fisheries), and I consider myself relatively knowledgeable about politics. But not knowing the name of the prime minister is unforgivable.

    Unfortunately the internet -and real life- is full of thick people. There is no getting away from that.

    True. The funny thing is Harry knows who she is, but I doubt that someone like Justin Bieber knows about her - but then again, I barely know about the Canadian administration; but then again I naturally know a lot about the United States administrations, as I'm sure many do.

    I think even at 10 I knew who the prime minister was and some important political people like the US president and also royal family members. My dad made sure I was aware and still does of politics so that I don't come across stupid. No matter how intelligent you are, everyone should have some basic awareness of current affairs cos it affects us all

    It is unforgivable! I asked my housemate who the prime minister was and she had a think and after about 5 minutes said David Cameron cos it's not Gordon Brown anymore. In those 5 minutes every respect I had for her intelligence was slipping further and further away.
