Some of you may have been following the US presidental deathmatch – even for us Imperial Old Countryiers it’s a popular spectator sport. Consequently 1UP’s Rory Manion’s recent post makes for fascinating reading. By delving into Fundrace, they’ve worked out who’s donated what to various political candidates.

Clearly this inspired us to have a crack, which we did for half an hour. We found quite a few people, before having second thoughts and feeling a bit creepy. Finding stuff out about relatively non-public figures in the industry, we thought it better not to post ‘em. Well, except one. And it’s a fairly fun one.
