    Which UK politician was the best PM we never had? Whether they be leader of the opposition, another party leader or a runner up for leadership of the party in government, who is the best politician who came close to the number one spot but never got it?

    Gaitskell would have been very interesting, and personally I also have a soft spot for Ken Clarke, he seems like quite a nice chap. But it's really, really hard to say.

    Heseltine could have been interesting.

    Hague would probably be my bet.

    Some may say Enoch Powell. Infact that was the general concesus at the time.

    Or Paddy Ashdown or John Smith.

    William Hague. He's easily the most interesting politician out of the current cabinet. Unfortunately his time as Conservative leader as during the hype of the New Labour years.
