One established the Metropolitan Police in 1829 and served two terms as Prime Minister and the other was jailed in South Africa for life for the capital crime of sabotage equivalent to treason but easier to prove. He served 27 years in prison and is now unbelievably some sort of saint apparently worthy of a statue in Parliament Square. I comment no further!

For those who may not know, CRO after the name means the person has a Criminal Record Office number, hence a certain person's CRO number! Of course that is in England & Wales only but if you are gonna have a statue here I reckon that must count! Not a lot of people know that!!!
