Not Marcel.

7. My best known nickname, interestingly, contains a chemical element (a metal), though it has nothing to do with my experience in chemistry.

Indeed he is. That's why the (Haha) was included. And it also illustrates that I'm at a loss for an answer.

That last clue was a headspinner. I was going to go for Watson or Crick, but now I'm going to assume, since there are no famous tax barristers that I'm aware of, that this person is famous mostly for nothing to do with law or science. Yet s/he got the award from Bush, so I'm going with politician. How about Maggie Thatcher?

The Iron Lady!

Interesting that everyone else thought that it was a man.

I never got to give the clue that she survived an assassination attempt by the IRA.

You're up!

I have to say that beyond the analysis above, it was a very lucky guess for me. I was just throwing out the first British pol of the Bush era that came to mind for me. I had no idea that she had had that science and law background. Very interesting, Bill. Thanks for that one.

1. I was born in Paris
2. I was the youngest of 16 children
3. In London, I stole a policeman's badge.

Let's go with one of Cliff's guesses on mine: Marcel Marceau.

Stealing a policeman's badge (or hat) makes me think of P.G. Wodehouse, but I'm pretty sure he's 100% British.
