Many politicians dream of securing their place in history; most have to be content with at best a footnote.
But few achieve the recognition of being the subject of a pub quiz question in their own lifetime.
I joined a team in a basement bar around the corner from the Old Bailey in the heart of legal London last night.
Among the questions in the "relatively current affairs" round was this one: "Who recently resigned as leader of the Welsh Liberal Democrats?"
Not the sort of question you expect in a central London pub quiz - and possibly not a question the quizmaster expected us to get right.
Mind you, we didn't quite get the full correct answer which, according to the quizmaster, was this: "Lembit Opik, better known as one half of the Cheeky Girls".
