    Didn't mean to annoy anyone - just meant as an ironic joke as many Labour supporters feel betrayed on socialist principles by Blair.
    I will amend it to Blair was the best Labour PM in 75 years (Competition: Harold Wilson, James Callaghan and Gordon Brown) - so no contest

    Unfair to Harold Wilson who started the Open University, the Giro Bank, the Housing Corporation AND refused to be drawn in to the Vietnam war by an American President. Far superior to Blair IMO. Blair who' s 'crimes' included supporting and promoting neo liberalism and it doesn't get more right wing than that.

    I don't mind being annoyed! <laugh>

    You point out the issue, though. He had to compromise to get elected.
    The median age in the UK is about 40.
    That means that the average UK citizen has only seen one non-Tory win an election.
    The same person will have seen Thatcher, Major, Cameron, May and Johnson do it.

    It gets better: prior to entering politics, Michelle Donelan worked for WWE

    Certainly explains pretending to be friends with somebody only to smack them over the head with a steel chair as soon as their back's turned...
