The Big Question Answered

I'm sure there's one question, above all others, that we'd want to ask David Cameron if we had the opportunity - yes, that's the one: Which Harry Potter character would he most like to be? The PM is on his ground-breaking visit to Kazakhstan at present (Cultural Learnings of Kazakhstan for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Great Britain), and it fell to a Kazakh student to ask the question, to Cameron to make the only possible reply ('If you've got any sense, you want to be Harry Potter'), and to the media duly to report the 'story'.
Somehow I can't quite imagine Clement Attlee being asked which Greyfriars character he'd most like to be and, after due consideration, removing his pipe from his mouth and opting for Bob Cherry. But that was back when we were serious and adults left children's books to children...
