* UsefulNotes/TonyBlair was part of a student rock band, Ugly Rumors, during his youth making him thus far the only British Prime Minister with a rock 'n' roll background. He is also a fan of ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' and managed to voice himself in the episode ''[[Recap/TheSimpsonsS15E4TheReginaMonologues The Regina Monologues]]'', making him also one of the few politicians along with Rudolph Giuliani, to land a guest spot on this show. He also described ''Series/CoronationStreet'' as "one of his favorite programmes", though his late mother-in-law Pat Phoenix played the character Elsie Tanner on the show so it's not that surprising. In a 1996 episode of ''Radio/DesertIslandDiscs'' he choose music by Ezio, Music/ClaudeDebussy, Music/TheBeatles, Music/BruceSpringsteen, Music/SamuelBarber, Music/RobertJohnson, Music/{{Free}} and Music/JohnWilliams as his favorites to bring with him to a deserted island. As his favorite novel he choose ''Literature/{{Ivanhoe}}'' and as his luxury item a guitar.

* Prince Charles is, if anything, an even bigger nerd than his mother. Since his youth he has been a major fan of ''Radio/TheGoonShow'' to the point of making [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IfhC587Wiik fan film]] (and doing a very creditable Bluebottle impersonation). Apart from that he is also the highest ranking noble Creator/MontyPython fan. He also went to visit Creator/PeterJackson in New Zealand and got to see the first Film/TheHobbit movie before the rest of the world did. He's also a know RailEnthusiast, and has spent time on the footplate of various steam locomotives, as well as the Royal Train, driving his mum.

* French far right politician Jean-Marie [=LePen=] reportedly loved the comic strip "Super Dupond" by Jacques Lob, Creator/{{Gotlib}}, Alexis and Jean Solé. The series is about a stereotypical chauvinist and xenophobic FrenchJerk fighting for everything French. [[MisaimedFandom [=LePen=] clearly didn't understand]] the comic strip was meant to be a {{Satire}} of such people. Disgusted by his approval the creators eventually terminated the series.
