Mastermind: British Trotskyism to 1949

December 23, 2012 at 11:02 pm (BBC, geeks, Jim D, Pabs, politics, trotskyism, TV)

Dave Osler got seven. I got nine. Test your knowledge in this jolly quiz:

    Seven, which means I’m very disappointed indeed with Osler’s score.

  2. Roger McCarthy (@RF_McCarthy) said,

    Six! and half of those were for the easy questions about International Trotskyism in general rather than the doings of the Balham Group.

    I bow to all of you for your superior knowledge of Trot Trivia.

  3. Monsuer Jelly More Bounce to the Ounce (Much More Bounce) said,

    6 as well. blergghy coomenter is brill btw

  4. Barry Bethell (A normal breakfast, a delicious milkshake for lunch and one for dinner), these clown-size trousers are far too big for me said,

    Oh yes, hats off to Will, says Will, and hello to everyone who knows him

  5. Sue r said,

    Wonder who verified those questions? By the way, Roger McCarthy, which one was a half question?

  6. Jim Denham said,

    Wonder who verified those questions?

    Yes, it reminds me of a little routine some of us used to do about the time Mastermind first started. In it, Gerry Healy is in the chair , answering questions on Trotskyism and gets them all wrong, as the “correct” answers have been provided by the United Secretariat.

    It was actually funnier than it sounds…

  7. Sue r said,

    I wasn’t being sectarian, I genuinely wondered who wrote the questions.

  8. Babs said,

    Hello Will! Null points here.

  9. Babs said,

    By the way. Barry Bethel got nicked for child abuse in 2009. *Do* Keep up man. Just saying, like.
