    Of course you want to be the tory leader. Everyone wants to be a leader of a political party. Although, it would be better if Nirvana1989-1994 was tory leader.
    Oh yeah!

    You would shift the tories to the left, which would mean it would be more electable.

    Oh yeah! Because there's definitely modern evidence to suggest that eh?

    Not like when Blair shifted Labour to the right and embraced neoliberalism they actually won elections, left wingers almost always lose because Britain is a fundamentally conservative country (hence why we have the church ingrained into our political establishment; the lords still exist and we still have a monarchy.)

    And before you bring him up; Attlee was as an exception not the rule, desperate people always vote radically, a country just after the bloodiest conflict in human history is gonna be pretty desperate.

    He was also there by accident, only because Eden ****ed up Suez and by extension his entire political career, Supermac should've never been leader in the first place, but he got lucky with events (funny that considering his famous quote.)

    A better example would probably be Ted Heath I'd say; considering even MacMillan backed Thatcher in his latter days, Heath was bitterly opposed and wanted to preserve the post-war consensus.

    Major lol, he did exactly the same things as Thatcher but was slightly more socially left wing, economically there was continuity. I'm surprised you admire him but hate Thatcher considering she was closer to your views, Major was pretty much a proto-Cameron.

    Major was a nice man. He had the trust of the people. He had no right to win the 1992 election and he won. It shows how good he was.

    Cameron did have a right to win the 2015 election. People wouldn't have voted Ed Milliband because his mouth and nose weren't in the right place.
