It’s been pretty much impossible to ignore the news that France proposed a merger with Britain way back in the 1950s (here is a typical blog posting on the subject) - but what has been overlooked is that this was not the first time the idea was aired - well, in modern times, that is.

So, using your skill and judgement - or knowledge - can you guess who first came up with the idea and when?

  1. Winston Churchill, 1940.  About a week before France fell.

  2. Darn, I was guessing William the Conqueror in 1066, in more of a hostile take-over scenario…
