Hello from Australia. I've been looking at your page for Sir Robert Menzies, which descibes him as Australian Attorney-General and leader of the United Australian Party.

Sorry to be a pedant, but while both descriptions are accurate for Menzies' early career he went on to be the founder and leader of the Liberal Party of Australia and in that capacity the country's longest-serving Prime Minister. Describing him as the Australian Attorney-General is a bit like describing Baroness Thatcher as a former Secretary of State for Education!

Regards
Leigh Schneider
