As the US presidential race has been hotting up in real life, the Radio Times has conducted a poll to see which US television character readers would like to see as US president.Around 2,000 people took part in the survey which decided that rather than having an incompetent in charge of the USA, they would like Homer Simpson to take the role. In second place came West Wing’s fictional president, Josiah Bartlett.
Homer’s manifesto in the Radio Times, written by The Simpsons scriptwriters ran: “I promise there will be fewer nuclear disasters with me as your mayor than with me as your nuclear safety inspector.”
The top ten in full:
1 – Homer Simpson (The Simpsons) (John says “hes got my vote”
2 – Josiah Bartlet (The West Wing)
3 – Dr Frasier Crane (Frasier)
4 – Sgt Bilko (The Phil Silvers Show)
5 – Gil Grissom (CSI: Crime Scene Investigation)
6 – Jack Bauer (24)
7 – Dr Cliff Huxtable (The Cosby Show)
8 – Phoebe Buffay (Friends)
9 – Tony Soprano (The Sopranos)

St patrick’s birth Place is unknown, possibly France, Wales or Soctland. When he was 16 he was abducted and enslaved by Irish marauders. He worked as a shepard on the slopes of a mountain in County Antrim. He was religious a prayed to the Christian God.
St. Patrick is also known to have driven the snakes out of Ireland. However, the snakes were at that time a symbol of Paganism, and it was the Pagans that were driven out.
