And this is also just something I’ve noticed, there’s no real point to it, most certainly not a political point.
But both of our last two Prime Ministers have lost a child in either infancy or childhood. The odds of the first appear to be about 5 in one thousand, the second about 10-20 per 100,000 (depends upon age group). Yes, yes, I know, happenstance, simple statistics, nothing but that.
The one before that had a miscarriage I think but that’s so common as to be almost unremarkable (however painful etc).
