    Tony Blair by a mile, followed by Atlee.

    He took the country from a basket case into one of the world's strongest economies in a short time. 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 - look at the skyscrapers in Liverpool, Manchester, Birmingham.
    • 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.
    • Self-interest hereditary peers abolished and a democratic house is being installed - the biggest constitutional change since Oliver Cromwell
    • NHS improved dramatically - more hospitals were built under Blair than anyone else.
    • NHS waiting lists now are very short.
    • Free Nursery care for children
    • More graduates than ever.

    canals to view its modern museum describing
    how it once was?

    Maybe - but he put Brown in charge of the economy, during whose watch many of the current problems started to germinate. He also took us into a war to deal with non-existent weapons of mass destruction.
    George Bush was a complete numpty - yet Blair was his puppet. What does that say about Blair?

    No doubt you'll now attempt to bury me under a mountain of 'facts', but I ain't interested in joining the merry-go-round that threads become once you are involved.

    PS
    I'm fat and have been known to wave a flag (an Everton one, with no political affiliations), so obviously my views hold no weight!

    Now this one, which I constantly hear, which I find amazing.....

    The problems we have are overwhelmingly financial and not the making of the UK. Guess what! It came from abroad (mainly the USA), a world-wide Credit Crunch. The worst in history they tell us. You must have heard of it in the past 18 months or so. It has been on TV.

    He also took us into a war to deal with non-existent weapons of mass destruction.
    They did not. They went to get rid of tyrant and the capability of WMD. Kelly stated Iraq can "have them within months, weeks." - in if none are in the warehouses.

    No doubt you'll now attempt to bury me under a mountain of 'facts',
    That is easy to do. Look at the record. Get your selective amnesia seen to.

    It nice to know you wave flags as well. You can't beat a good flag.

    I used to work with her and she had a wicked sense of humour. She was pretty gutsy too. I liked that. She was very regal in her own way. Also liked Dennis, he was a very funny guy.

    1. Churchill - Away, but not Home.

    [Reason: if not just for his eloquence under fire during WWII. Those speechs will live forever....]

    2. W.E. Gladstone - [our very own Cilla] from Rodney Street in Liverpool.

    [Reason: despite being addicted to pornography [more tea victar] he roamed the streets at night to 'help' fallen women, instilling christenian values on them [enter stage left Sigmund Freud, hmmm....] chopped down trees in his spare time.........presumably, to get all those fallen women off his mind! Oh, and served as PM four times for the country, and did a decent job of it.

    Dur deh, dur deh, dur deh, da-da, da-da-da, da.......No.2 please Cilla!

    She was famous for no sense of humour whatsoever. Even her fellow students at uni said she never laughed and was completely devoid of any sense of humour.

    I have known many funny people who were total arseholes as well.

    Also liked Dennis, he was a very funny guy.
    When he was sober. The Press Association presented him with pair of jack boots.

    Well, she musta developed one then WW. Both of them. I didn't know if he was drunk or not. He weren't a drinking partner. Most politicians are partial to a drink or three.

    It is how they run the country that matters, not if they make you laugh.

    Not with me. I reckon they're all bent. People who make me laugh I like.

    Just me I guess.
