MP David Lammy appeared on Mastermind and Scored just 8 points. Groan

Off topic…but no comments allowed where David Lammy is mentioned…when he was University Minister in Dec 2008, he appeared on Celebrity Mastermind.
His chosen subject was Muhammad Ali. He scored just 8 points…even better are some of his answers in the General Knowledge…

1. What was the married name of the scientists Marie and Pierre who won the Nobel prize in 1903 for their research into radiation? His answer? Antoinette

2. Which fortress was built in the 1370’s to defend one of the gates of Paris and was later used as a state prison by Cardinel Richieleu? Versailles.

3. Who succeeded to the English throne aged 9 on the death of his father, Henry the Eighth in 1547? His answer? Henry the Seventh.

Overqualified to be University Minister? Explains a lot, doesn’t it?
