At least your were using an alternate for the correct answer. I kept trying to figure out how Raúl worked on a "P" quiz. I read it as "Castro".

For people reading the comments, the original clue said "Disease scheduled to be eradicated in 2018".

It's still not eradicated, but it's very very close.

It's been "very close" for decades. Almost every child in the world continues to get the vaccine because the disease is technically still preset in the wild mountainous region of Pashtunistan... something tells me it's going to stay that way

And primate!

I definitely think "peer" is the only right answer. Besides, the lords are law-makers; I'd say an MP (or someone who stands for election as one) is more of a politician than the lords are.

Maybe Piotr could be accepted? For some reason, it never crossed my mind to try with Peter, Piotr felt more authentic.

With Proust, Wiki says the book is known as "In Search of Lost Time", and the original French is La Recherche which backs this up.

I'd have said "ALSO known as 'In Search of Lost Time' ".

I was introduced to it as the name in the quiz.

Polio is back in the US and UK, thanks to anti-vaxxers. You'll have to change the clue.

You could also blame immigration from Afghanistan/Pakistan. Not so brave? Anyway, it wasn't vaccination but isolation that managed to eradicate Polio from the ENTIRE Americas in the early 1980s. That includes 3rd world countries, like Haiti for instance. By the way, it's really not that deadly or contagious, hence we haven't heard much about these latest outbreaks. I don't think they will ever eliminate it because that would mean the end of the vaccine, which almost every child worldwide has been getting for decades (the when it was present only in the mountains of Pashtunistan)

In my opinion, the House of Lords question should accept parliamentarian as well as peer.
