Dalek is not me. As evidenced by the fact that he isn't me. See? Or, if that's not good enough, by the fact that I no virtually bugger all about Dr Who, whilst he is an obsessive. w00t. Ah, so it was Dalek rather than you that I met at that Who meet in Birmingham on the night of the 23rd of April.

Would one automaticly be called in the event the Prime Minister dies? Don't think so. Remember that Prime Minister isn't an elected position - it goes to whoever the leader of the governing party is.
