Voters agree that Margaret Thatcher was better PM than Tony Blair

By Tim Montgomerie

Blairhidingbehindthatche A poll for YouGov has confirmed what every good Conservative already knew. Margaret Thatcher was a better PM than Tony Blair.

Nearly 2,000 Britons were asked to name the best Prime Minister from the post-war period who had served for five years or longer. Maggie secured a clear win:

  • Margaret Thatcher: 35%
  • Tony Blair: 21%
  • Howard Wilson: 9%
  • Clement Atlee: 6%
  • Harold Macmillan: 5%
  • John Major: 2%
  • Don't know: 25%

Poor Mr Major.
