    Thatcher by a mile.

    • Major was poor (does anyone remember him?)
    • Sir Alec Douglas-Home was a compete idiot and put in charge because of the public school he went to (it was their turn)
    • Eden was naive (Suez)
    • Harold Macmillan was a liar (he said we had never had it so good in 1958 with about half the country still in slum housing).
    • Edward Heath said he would cut prices at a stoke. In the following three years prices had never risen so much in history to that point.
    • Sir Winston Churchill was poor in peace time being a war Lord.

    Phony Tony Bliar.
    QUISLING and the cause of at least 100,000 deaths of Iraqi, Afghani and British Service people. The killing goes on.
    Since leaving office has aquired a portfolio of ?18,000,000 of properties to live in, Earns 90,000 for an after dinner speech.
    Yes a real good old fashioned Socialist is our Phony Tony.

    He also today costs us who pay tax ?6,000,000 a year to keep him safe with Security, a lot more than it costs for Gordon Brown.

    It's a difficult question. British Prime Ministers in general are reprehensible bunch. Adulterers, slave traders, liars, war mongers, racists. In short, just the type any decent person wouldn't want as a family member. In my own lifetime, Thatcher was awful. Anyone who could cut cash which went into the research of cot-death syndrome has to be among the lowest form of life. Blair was also awful. People thought he would make things a little easier for the working class, but the change over from the Tories was almost seamless. Atlee was probably one of the best, but his record on foreign policy was not a good one, but probably all anyone could expect from a man of his class.

    The best we have had is Tony Blair. He took the country from basket case into one of the world's strongest economies. The pound was the world strongest currency for about 10 years. Constitutionally he got rid of hereditary Lords. The hard of thinking have no idea of what this means. Also the zero unemployment with over a million migrant workers to fuel the booming economy.

    Under Blair Since 1997:
    • The UK economy has been the world's most robust.
    • The pound has been almighty strong.
    • 9/11 caused a recession in most of the western world. It never happened here.
    • The UK had the longest sustained economic growth in history. Provincial cities have boomed with their skylines changing beyond belief.
    • Some superb anti-social laws have been implemented (a pity some police and courts do not use them enough).
    • The country even absorbed over 1 million eastern European and still not have an unemployment problem.
    • Hereditary peers abolished - the biggest constitutional change since Oliver Cromwell
    • Provincial cities went on massive building programmes - look at the skyscrapers in Liverpool, Manchester, Birmingham.

    All warped opinion.

    deliberately lying to parliament and the country about weapons of mass destruction
    State the facts that prove he lied?

    because 'HE' thought it was right to invade Iraq,therefore breaking international law.He should be jailed.
    No international law was broken - you make things up. I though invading Iraq was the right thing to do at the time, and still do - they got rid of a tyrant who gassed villages. WE should have done the same to Hitler in the mid 1930s before he was a big threat. By the way your darling public schoolboy Tories support the invasion and still do.

    Kelly said that Iraq can have WMD "within months, weeks", even if they never actually had any physical weapons. All on film.
