Your Verdict on Blair's Legacy

The people have spoken.
Posterity will judge Margaret Thatcher more favourably than Tony Blair.

I must admit, I wasn't sure what the result would be. I didn't think it would be as decisive as it was.
But it was a landslide.

Margaret Thatcher- 19 votes
Tony Blair- No votes

So, will that be the verdict of history?

Only time will tell, but you lot seem to have made your mind up.

Anyway, now the big issue of the day.
I'm not sure the pollsters are asking the general public the right question on who they want to lead the next goverment.

So I'm offering you a real choice.

Cameron has given people a LOT to think about over the past few weeks.

Definitely they will.
Margaret Thatcher had a point of view. Margaret Thatcher - however wrong she may have been in some respects DID actually stick up for this country. And she did what she believed in. I'm sure Tony Blair "does what he believes in" but Blair is a politician; Thatcher was a stateswoman - there's the difference

Pommygranate- A little surprised. But I suppose Thatcher had positives to weigh against the negatives and was not found wanting in the balance.

Tony is.

David- As I have said before, the issue for voters is confidence, not ideas.

Gledwood- Couldn't have put it better myself. My vote in this poll, had I voted, would probably have been the same as the other nineteen.
