In addition the Dursley's car, shown in the same film, bears a 2006 year registration plate.

It is implied throughout the series that Hagrid was given that position within a few years of his expulsion from school in 1942.

But in one scene of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, Molly Weasley reminisces about Ogg, Hagrid's predecessor; since Hagrid's years as gamekeeper appear to overlap with Molly's years at school, it seems unlikely that she remembers a previous gamekeeper.

(Although one could imagine a scenario in which Fudge was delegated by the Minister for Magic to meet with the Prime Minister while he, Fudge, was in an inferior office.) Additionally, the personality and history of the Prime Minister portrayed appears to more closely match that of Tony Blair than of John Major.

An article in the Daily Mail notes that Rowling is close to the then-Chancellor of the Exchequer Gordon Brown (often viewed as a rival to Blair's leadership of the Labour Party, who succeeded him and became Prime Minister), and that she might have been attempting to show Blair's worst side.

The skit violates the dating convention by having the characters reference the event, even though for them it should still be the mid-1990s.

Sirius Black mentions Snape and Bellatrix's attendance of the school overlapping at a certain point; however, this is impossible, as Bellatrix attended the school from either 1962 to 1969 or 1963 to 1970, while Snape started at Hogwarts in 1971.

The rebuttal for this is that the date the "real" Nicolas Flamel was born does not correspond with the Nicolas Flamel of Harry Potter.

Another problem exists regarding Rubeus Hagrid's tenure as Hogwarts's gamekeeper.

There are numerous contradictions in the timeline, though it should be noted that, in the FAQ section of her website, Rowling has admitted having difficulty with managing mathematics, so perhaps perfect internal consistency is not to be expected.
