Revs Richard Coles and Giles Fraser NOT the same person

I've only recently realised that they were too separate media Revs, when I idly wondered about the trajectory from the Communards to blaming the social care crisis on Remainers

( https://unherd.com/2019/02/why-wont-remainers-talk-about-family/ )

Which unlikely pairings have you confused, and what was it that made the penny drop?

When I was about 5, I remember being confused between Captain Kirk and Captain Cook.

and a few years later, I struggled with Warsaw and Walsall.

Leon Brittan visited our school to talk to the sixth form when I were a lad. I was in the rugby team, and we had a match that Wednesday, so we hung around waiting outside the assembly hall to get a peek at him before we left.

As LB and the headmaster turned the corner to approach us, the head visibly quailed as if we were waiting there to assault them. Idiot.

Leon Brittan strode towards us unperturbed.
