Not forgetting Noele Gordon (of "Crossroads" ) but not Noel Edmonds who was born on Dec 22nd or Noel Gallagher who was born in May (and so may well have shared his birthday with Jesus).

Was Ms Gordon the first Noelle?

This includes his oldest son Justin, he of the dubious beard, and whom I would be tolerably happy to see as the next Canadian PM.

Justin Trudeau reaches the big 40 today; his brother Sacha is 38. Sacha's two children, Pierre Jr and Gala, have also had their birthdays within the last week.

I've been touting that as an eventuality for a few years now.

Sadly it now seems unlikely, since Justin has ruled himself out of the running to be Liberal Party leader. Of those who appear to have any interest in the position, I think I'd prefer Gerard Kennedy - but he's not an MP, which doesn't exactly help his cause.

Of course the NDP doesn't have a leader at the moment either; it will choose a replacement for the late Jack Layton in March. From what I'm hearing, Tom Mulcair seems to be favourite right now. Should he get the job, we'd have an acting Grit leader who used to be NDP and an NDP leader who used to be Grit.

From what i've observed of Mr. Kennedy, he could be a reasonably good bet.

It always amazes silly, old-fashioned me how politicians easily jump from party to party at a drop of the proverbial hat. Principles and core beliefs go by the wayside as the trough looms into view.

Had to check twice if this was really the Birthday Thread.

Thanks.

It would appear that my dad has forgotten, but he's had a lot on his mind these days.

I would expect that many of the ship jumpers would say that it is they who are true to their principles and core beliefs and that it is the party as a whole that changes.
