Tory inbreeding

The only mild controversy in TMTCHs excellent quiz last night was question 1....
Salisbury was undoubtedly 'Bob's your uncle" to Balfour....
However a very similar act of nepotism occurred between Churchill and Eden. Winston when PM was best man at the wedding of his niece Clarissa (who is still going strong btw) and his then foreign secretary, who was of course subsequently his successor. The reception was unashamedly held at No 10.
So in reference to the original question, whilst it was undoubtedly still a shameless act of Tory nepotism, technically they were uncle / nephew-in-law....
