Re: Why did JKR feel it was necessary for us to know the Prime Minister of Britain?

You're correct KW, Jo posted on her site that she had originally written the chapter to go into Chamber of Secrets as back story to set up for what was going to happen in prisoner of Azkaban, when the muggle prime minister was told of Blacks escape. But the editors cut it out because the book was already so involved, and she's been trying to put it back in ever since. Thats why it really has nothing to do with HBP, she just finally found some space. Of course I do think the chapter was important to the series as a whole. It is ludicris to think that the wizarding officials wouldnt keep some contacts within the muggle government for emergency purposes, someone would need to do the explaining just like we have those government officials that tell us UFOs are swamp gas
