Danel: ... Why is Discworld
the next Prime Minister? Not that it wouldn't be awesome, but...
: Its the way the indexes work. The next pothole on the Prime Minister page is from this comment:
- Sir Robert Peel. He founded the Metropolitan Police Force for London (as well as doing a more or less total reform of the police and jail system in the UK), which is why British police are called "Bobbies" and "Peelers".
- Discworld parodies that when it mentions that other cities are calling their Watchmen "Sammies" after Sir Samuel Vimes, a result of Ankh-Morpork trained watchmen taking up positions all over the continent.
Now Prime Ministers have their own pages examples need to be moved to those pages for this exact reason.
