Ramsay MacDonald was the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom in 1930. On 5 October of that year, Charley Pollard named a Vortisaur "Ramsay" after him as she believed that it resembled him. (AUDIO: Storm Warning)
MacDonald's position as Prime Minister overlapped with Adolf Hitler's rise to power in Germany. The Seventh Doctor claimed he was an idiot for ignoring the threat posed by the Nazi government, being more concerned instead with domestic unemployment rates and with keeping the Conservative Party in line.
