Should there be something in here about the man with the wig's portrait?Gwenog Jones 03:31, 2 May 2009 (UTC)

Quote - Scrimgeour or Fudge?

Cubs Fan2007 - are you sure it's Scrimgeour in HBP and not Fudge? I just checked my copy and it says:

Scrimgeour turned slowly on the spot and exchanged an incredulous look with Fudge, who really did manage a smile this time as he said kindly, "The trouble is, the other side can do magic too, Prime Minister."

My reading is that it is Fudge, not Scrimgeour talking the Prime Minister at this point. It reads to me like this - Scrimgeour looks at Fudge, Fudge smiles, then talks to the PM. - Cavalier One(Wizarding Wireless Network) 23:54, 16 January 2008 (UTC)

It's a bit ambiguous, but re-reading the sentence again, it does sound like it was Fudge speaking. I guess I just assumed it was Scrimgeour. --Cubs Fan (Talk to me) 01:26, September 6, 2010 (UTC)
Definitely Fudge. They mention his facial expression, how he couldn't smile, then the quote says he managed to smile. --JKochRavenclawcrest(Owl Me!) 02:14, September 6, 2010 (UTC)

Shouldn't this article be about John Major as he was the muggle Prime Minister —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 92.12.103.222 (talkcontribs).

Not verified. See the "Behind the scenes" section. 70.244.83.79 20:39, May 14, 2010 (UTC)
It is possible that John Major was never PM in the Harry Potter Universe. --JKochRavenclawcrest(Owl Me!) 21:45, May 14, 2010 (UTC)

though it is likely that it was Mr Majors who was refered to,, the text itself does not give the name, so it would be best not to give the name in the article since it is not specific cannon.
