    Tony Benn was the best PM the UK never had.

    It's scary to think that idiots like Gordon Clown and Call-me-Dave have been and will get into power when this man accomplishes more in a day than both of them will ever achieve.
    Tony Benn was never PM?

    So who do you plan on voting for? The tories plan on this too, so I assume you're hopeful of a highly shocking result at the election?

    In regards to thread: I doubt they'll have Tony Blair broadcasted on live T.V., I think he's being stuffed into areas which they currently have no hope of winning and are throwing someone with charisma into these areas to win voters over (which I can see working). However, I do expect that soon enough Labour will be asking Gordon Brown's grandmother to give a speech at the local bingo club.
    The tories .The tories only plan on cuting the offers after midnight or a certain hour therefore we can get drunk in the day ha!

    Doh! Anyway I'm not sure I agree, I don't really know enough about Benn.

    I think John Smith would have made quite a good PM though..

    If Tony Benn were to be Prime Minister, then you would have those traditional Labour seats voting in droves because he actually appreciates working-class voters unlike Blair who only understands the rich middle classes.
    Ah...yes...but what you seem to have neglected taking into consideration is that you don’t need to pander to voters who are too stupid to actually vote for a better candidate when they blindly vote for a candidate solely based on why party the individual represents.

    Most of the Tories I know mention Boris Johnson as the best PM they never had. I can see it now, Bojo staring down Putin, and then, out of no where this happens...

    This is too good, Sky has put it brilliantly: "the reforming of an aging rock band - Tony Blair's come back tour".

    Too little, too late I'm afraid. Morever, the only place I want to see Tony Blair is hanging from a lamp-post.

    What do we all think about this?
    I'd be equally happy with firing squad or guillotine.

    And that's the kind of attitude that is at the heart of New Labour (and the Tories actually) and why politics has no meaning in this country any more. As I said earlier, people used to vote Labour because it meant something, now they just don't bother turning up to vote at all.

    Really? Why? It's probably a (marginally) quicker and less painful death than hanging.

    That is rather the nature of a mature democracy that is satisfying the basic needs of voters.

    As voters we don’t try to fix what’s not broken, we just wait for the incumbent government to become sufficiently irrational and stupid (as seems to be their nature), then replace them with the now reformed opposition after they have been in the naughty corner for a few years.

    So in a way if you are still a labour voter it still does mean something, you obviously haven’t been paying attention :yep:.
