    Way to completely contradict yourself in one post.
    How am I contradicting myself? You must have misread my argument because I don't see any contradiction there at all.

    It makes him a bad PM for trying to avoid another devastating war?
    Hindsight is a wonderful thing and unfortunately for him, he's remembered as the guy who appeased Hitler.

    We can't judge him on his motivations but only on the outcomes which were catastrophic. Ed miliband by all accounts was a decent and sincere person yet he failed spectacularly as opposition leader. .
    Technically speaking, Miliband was the 4th best opposition leader not to become PM since the war.

    Labour should have kept him given the candidates that came afterward.

    Are you sure? Look at the Turkic Mongol eyes inherited from his ancient ancestor Genghis Khan.

    Depending on whether you consider Turks white or non-white that is?
    The Turks are white Mongols I think

    By those standards we've already had a non-white PM: Benjamin D'Israeli.
