Civil servants make good

This evening, on BBC2, a panel of four senior Civil Servants from the British Ministry of Justice won the "University Challenge The Professionals". They proved very erudite and capable adversaries over the National Physical Laboratory.

Senior civil servants? Pah. I don't know how it is in the UK, but if that were an Irish programme, there would be a bunch of graduate COs and EOs under the desk whispering the answers up at the mandarins, and getting kicked if they didn't provide the correct answer.
