… Sunny Jim Callaghan. Blair is now the only living Labour Prime Minister. I suspect Labour will be pissed off with the timing though, as they have a lot to get through Parliament in the four sitting days left before el Tone is likely to call the election, and one of those will now be lost as a mark of respect.

First, the easy one, the Crimson room and, because it doesn't work as it should, I'll tell you for nothing that the code is 1994. Then, if you're feeling daring, the Doors.

Warning: I take no responsibility for any insanity that may result from anyone playing these games.
