Friday quiz

Return of the standard quiz.  In today’s, who said these things:

1.  Political correctness is tyranny with manners.
2.  Sex and religion are closer to each other than either might prefer.
3.  If I were two-faced, would I be wearing this one?
4.  You may not be interested in war, but war is interested in you.

And lastly:

5.  Who’s Chas coming onto in the photo?  [No cheating now]

No hints yet, to give the bright sparks a chance but later there’ll appear a few.

    Choose between Henry Ford, Charlton Heston, Thomas More, Thomas Jefferson, Leon Trotsky, George Bernard Shaw, Abraham Lincoln and Frank Lloyd Wright.

    For the woman, think Slip Inn.

    Thomas Moore, surely. The quote is hardly 15th century English. But all moors look the same?

    Answers as far as I have them:

    1. Charlton Heston
    2. Thomas More (1478-1535)
    3. Abraham Lincoln
    4. Leon Trotsky

    And the lady is Princess Mary of Denmark. Well done on that Chuckles. Thought more people would have a try at that.

    5. What is Charles doing with Anna Friel? I thought that after she had kicked David Thewliss into touch she would be mine (wife permitting)!
