I’VE PROMISED the family a break from blogging over the next few days (apart from comment approval which, of course, will continue).
So in my absence, might I encourage you to contribute to this open thread, on the subject of “Who was the greatest prime minister we never had?”
I can think of a few missed opportunities already: Iain Macleod, John Smith, Hugh Gaitskell, Nye Bevan, Michael Heseltine, Roy Jenkins… no, but seriously, who do you think would have made a great PM (and why) but never got the chance?
Speak again at the end of the week. Be seeing you…
