    We've had one person vote for Anthony Eden and another vote for Brown.

    Either irony is a major factor in voting, or some people have interesting priorities.

    If you actually look at it in this form of a list, then it really hits home how little good PMs we have had in the last 60 years

    Mrs. Thatcher
    Any reason for this?

    Just so she can reduce government intervention in the economy? Have higher amounts of unemployment? Or just reinvent the poll tax that everyone loved so much in the first place? Oh and you know she might just destroy the individuals protection in the workplace even more by further weakening the trade unions!

    Absolutely perfect choice of PM :yes:

    she left this country in a much better economic position then she inherited.
    No Labour Government has ever done that.

    And what does that show? She could have inherited a country in a diabolical situation, and improved it slightly.

    Mrs. Thatcher. The economy was in ruins last time she came to power, she'd be able to fix it again!
