    Ted Heath, for a variety of reasons unrelated to politics.
    Hope you did receive private music lessons from him!

      Ted got my vote, he was rubbish.
      Inflation hit 25%. Ted's answer was to give everyone a supplementary pay rise every time inflation went up causing, yes more ......

      Fair enough. It's my opinion. If you think Cameron or May are better that's your call.

      Surprised Blair is not mentioned more, if only because he sentenced more people to death in the last 15 years than any others in government!!!!!

      He was Prime Minister in favour of Remain and with a total lack of vision, passion, strategy or cohesive thinking made as big a balls up of the Remain campaign as you could ever wish to make. 'Project Fear', the traditional Tory go to election strategies fell flat on a general public split across party lines. He put out a binary referendum in which he failed to prepare for both results, then left his party and government torn and divided, leaderless and with no contingency or planning on what the government strategy would be in the event of Leave. It was shambolic, irresponsible, cowardly, self serving and a betrayal of office. I don't think anyone votes for a leader that would do that. Unless you did?
      The post said referendum. People voted for a referendum. He delivered the referendum. These are facts. Not commenting on the campaign, as that wasn’t what I quoted, but over 50% of people who voted in 2015 backed Referendum parties.

      Actually, when you look through the list of candidates we have been lumbered with more than our share of incompetent morons running the country. Written history can't really be relied upon so I'm looking at the PM's in my lifetime. Top three:

      Thatcher - who destroyed so much industry and her high interest rate policy led to so many losing their homes as well as the Poll Tax and her intransigent attitude towards Northern Ireland. But.....she did stand up to Europe.

      Blair - a war criminal who lied to us all as an excuse to go to war as Bush's puppet

      Cameron - the man who gave us the Referendum that nobody was really asking for then had it on his toes the moment he didn't get the result he wanted. A truly horrible individual who served only himself and not the country.

      So difficult to pick from those three. I didn't think I'd hate a PM as much as I hated Thatcher................. but I think Cameron has just about pipped her. Thatcher was strong and carried on regardless. Cameron is a snivelling coward.

      Indeed. I'm sure Cameron or May would have stood up to the Bush government and refused to get involved in Iraq....... oh.

      As @Hamilton said earlier, I know people who were full on in support of removing Saddam who now conveniently use Iraq as a stick to beat Blair with. And as I said, I can't stand him as a person (especially the faux Christian stuff), plus I was one of the million plus people who marched against the war.

      But, as a PM and looking at his record as a whole, Blair in comparison to Cameron is like comparing something a bit distasteful to Crystal Palace.

      Tony Blair for me, for no other reason than all the brave servicemen and servicewomen he needlessly sent to their deaths fighting conflicts built entirely on lies.

      I agree 100% on the war. He would have gone down as a great prime minister if hadn't bowed down to Bush. The late 90s early 21st century was like a breathe of fresh air compared to the previous administrations..
