I promised to reveal the grand prizewinners of the quiz prior to Christmas. Since the quiz resumed following the election, there have been 22 readers who have won the quizzes. Some of these are grand prizewinners, having won three or more. Indeed, three have won ten or more and three have won between five and ten.
The grand prizewinners are:
Jonathan (15), Dave H (13), Emmy (12), Len (9), Chris K (7), JH (5), Michael (4), Jason Lower (3), Croft (3), Ulysses (3).
The other winners are: Frank Young, Rob, Robin, Stephen Paterson, David, CM, Anne Marie Cunningham, Martyn Atkins, John Tomlinson, Tini, Frank Wynerth Summers III, Rich, Nick, and FinnishCowl.
Congratulations to all the prize winners, and indeed all readers who have taken part. As maude elwes recognised in her response to one of the quizzes, the purpose is not only to invite readers to engage but also to provide some information about the House of Lords.
Those who are grand prize winners are invited to tea at the Lords. Please contact me if you would like to take up your prize. (I know this is not possible for all, as some are not in the UK. In that case, I may be able to arrange to despatch an appropriate prize.) I am also thinking how we may recognise others who have won or contributed to the quizzes.
I wish all our readers a very happy Christmas and a peaceful and successful 2012.
