Title: Who is the worst British Prime Minister in modern times?
Post by: Sir Tigger QC on 05 May 2019, 14:30:42
There has been much chit chat in the media and social media that Theresa May is Britain's worst ever Prime Minister.  ::) But is she?  ???

In a litany of bad Prime Ministers the competition for the title of worst PM is hot!  ::)  So I thought I'd start a poll to see what the OOferati think.  :) 

Here's the list going back to Thatcher and what I see as their 'legacies' to the country.  ;)

Margaret Thatcher: Still widely despised by many for the Poll Tax and the de-industrialisation of many parts of the country.

John Major: Maastricht, the ERM debacle, Black Wednesday and the knock on effects that caused the recession of the early 1990's.

Tony Blair: Iraq, devolution, the botched reforms of the House of Lords and mass immigration.

Gordon Brown: Scuttling in the back door to sign the Lisbon Treaty and avoiding the publicity because it was so controversial at home, the huge budget deficit he left at the end of his term caused not only because of the financial crisis, but because of the bad management of the economy and the unsustainable levels of public spending while he was Chancellor and PM.

David Cameron: Libya, austerity and BREXIT.

Theresa May: Threw away her majority in an unnecessary General Election with a really bad campaign and the appalling mess she has made of BREXIT.

These 'legacies' are not necessarily my opinion and are not exhaustive, so feel free to add!  :y

Mrs Thatcher was of her time, and the country need her, biggest mistake was the poll tax. Since then all been spineless and foooking useless, this country needs a strong single-minded person to stand up for the country and it's moral code, Thatcher I think did this, And it's what's needed again, A leadership that will stand up against Europe tell them this is the deal, and to sort out all the wet snowflakes we have trying to ruin this country even more...  Thinks maybe this TB bloke might be worth voting for  :y

Only one stands out... His predecessor was a treasonous slimey nuct, but my choice funded that behavior and then spectacularly shot himself in the head by completely underestimating the scale of his own clusteropps  ;D

The current incumbent is no achiever but apart from the whole Brexit debacle, again not a situation she should have voluntarily walked into, she's probably on a par with John Major... ie somewhat unimaginative which isn't a good trait for taking a strong lead when the current issues warrant it.

I know the eurosceptics will say the current PM, but likely based on a blinkered hell-bent must-leave-at-all-costs view.  As much as I dislike her, I don't think anyone could have done significantly better, and certainly no current UK politician.

But Brown wins my vote - I know his hands were tied by the likes of the Rothschild family, but as chancellor and PM, he right royally screw us all.

BG, I have yet to hear a sensible, reasoned argument against the Poll Tax. As I understand it, one earner, one tax/rates bill.
Those that mainly objected were those who lived in (council?) houses with multiple wage earners yet only paid the same amount as a lone pensioner, using minimal services.

The poll tax and council tax are both wrong, all they are is efficient ways of raising tax indirectly, hence income tax is cut yet council tax goes up, look at all the indirect tax we pay,   Police-fire-frontline service should be paid from Central government, not. Piss pot power crazed local eejits.

Blair. It seemed to me that he set out to do as much damage as he possibly could to his own country, and was extremely successful at doing so.
This country will never recover from the damage he did to it.
Brown doesn't really get a look in. As Chancellor he was the worst of modern times, but as PM he was just out of his depth and didn't last very long.
May is an utter disaster ,so far out of her depth it would be funny if it wasn't so tragic. The Tory party had the chance to ditch her last December, but although the back benches voted to get rid of her, those on the payroll voted for their own careers above the good of the country, and should never ever be forgiven for it.
The only one on the list who deserved to hold the office was Thatcher. Love her or loathe her, she loved this country, believed in its potential and created the conditions for it to realise its potential.
The most effective politician of my lifetime. The second most effective- love him or loathe him -  would be Farage.

You can never say never. Someone who predicted president Trump 10 years ago would probably have been locked away in a padded cell.
It would take the complete implosion of the Tory party and probably the Labour party too. Neither of those things is beyond the bounds of possibility currently.
They are both doing a pretty good job of tearing themselves apart. The next 5 years or so could be an  interesting time in UK politics.

Yes, how Blair won the 2005 election after Iraq and all the shenanigans that led up to it I'll never know.....

He was a superb politician, no denying that. So were Hitler, Stalin, Lenin etc.....
And yes, the opposition was piss poor. The Tory party completely lost its way early in Thatchers third term. It has never recovered and it must be very doubtful that it ever will.
Labour is in at least as much trouble. It is now run by what used to be the Socialist Workers party (the left wing equivalent of the BNP).
It shouldn't be possible for them to win an election from the extremes, but all the rules have pretty much disappeared in recent times, so who knows.

Blair was a conman who was good at telling people what they wanted to hear, then lying his way out it when his promises failed to materialise. Most politicians do this of course but he took it to a whole new level, and made an art form out of it. He was a British Bill Clinton.
He also had the advantage of a mostly tame media, and for those who weren't tame he had Alistair Campbell to terrorise them into submission.
I have always thought of Campbell as something close to evil, despite his often friendly persona.

No not at all. I would remove the vote from under 30,s as they are unlikely to have a clue what they are talking about. I would remove the vote from anyone who hasn't paid at least three consecutive years income tax before each particular election. If they don't regularly contribute to  the public purse, they shouldn't have any say in how it is spent.
I would abolish most Govt. departments and scale down all the others apart from the M.O.D.
The only people allowed to work at the M.O.D. would be ex forces personnel.
The NHS would be started again from scratch.
I would investigate people currently and recently involved in politics and public life, and have many of them hung for treason.
I would make TB justice minister, but with some restraint on his culling powers as he is a very angry man and I am a very reasonable one.
Then, I would carry on with our representative democracy in the mother of all Parliaments.

Of course we have.....but, if the boot was on the other foot, we'd do exactly the same.

We'll just have to bomb Berlin again.  ;D

We should have 'Brexit behind closed doors from Downing Street' next. Theresa jackbooting around the place whilst holding a toothbrush over her top lip and Jezza slapping some Jews.



Maybe not...... ;D

The programme finished with one of Verhofstadts advisers laughing into the camera saying "weve kicked them out, weve turned them into a colony,this was the plan right from the start. hahaha". Then Verhofstadt revealing that Olly Robbins had asked his permission to become a Belgian citizen when its all over. Ddint we used to hang collaborators ?  >:( >:(

Blair's greatest success was to make himself a multi millionaire.

Partly through investment in oil futures in Iraq.  Divide the money he made from that by the number of dead (UK, coalition and Iraqi) and you have the a idea of the value he puts on human life.

Indeed. An utterly vile creature with no redeeming characteristics whatsoever. I developed a rule of thumb around 20 years ago, that if he said it was good that means its bad, and vice versa. It served me pretty well.
We can only hope there is a hell.

It is impossible to Vote, as they are all bad in so many ways.

The question should be who was the least worst?

Blair. B
loody
[/size][/i][/sub]Liar

At least he took 90% of children who were in poverty out of poverty.

Unlike Cameron and May, whose austerity measures have made people desperate.  So desperate that they kill themselves.

Obviously Thatcher oppsed the kids (in the words of the Iconic Frank Turner Song), but Cameron and May did it again.

That's to say it's one opinion...

But blaming Cameron and May for austerity is a ridiculous notion. You've actually Blair and Browns' economic policy to thank for that ::)

As for austerity causing people to kill themselves, that wouldn't have anything to do with them living beyond their means when times were "good" with artificially high wages and benefits and housing being handed out to everyone regardless of actual need?

A cynic might have reason to suggest that somebody actually conceived the whole dastardly idea just to further the Socialist* cause by creating a welfare dependency in the wake of the financial crash :-X

*Ironic given that the concept of controlling people by poverty doesn't seem particularly sociable.
