NO this is not simply a DOD rambling, but a shock new yougov opinion poll finding. Baroness Thatcher comfortably surpassed Tony Blair when people were asked who they would pick to lead the country at the height of their powers if they had the choice. David Cameron, the current Conservative leader, trailed far behind both – but was still ahead of Gordon Brown. In another shock twist almost two thirds of Tory voters said they would prefer Lady Thatcher to the current party leader. The poll confirms that Lady Thatcher, 82, is also considered, again by a long distance, to be the country’s greatest post-war prime minister, well ahead even of Winston Churchill during his second term in office in the 1950s. Maybe she could comeback and fight an election…after all Gladstone was 83 when he formed his 4th administration!
