A fitting accolade for a very succesful and intelligent Prime Minister
With respect, Major was the most atrocious and incompetent Conservative Prime Minister ever.
His total inability to manage resulted in a variety of differing views being regularly pedalled by ambitious non-entities.
Instead of clinically excising one or two of these individuals at the first stirrings he pontificated and didn't have the courage to take a tough line.
Had he sent one or two into political oblivion he would have been a stronger leader and could have led a more unified Cabinet. By failing to exercise decisive and clear leadership he failed both the Country and the Party.
He was solely responsible for the shambles that is now our so called national railway system, failing to heed the advice of Mrs Thatcher and political heavy-weights such as Norman Ridley who counselled that the railways could not be Privatised.
Unfortunately for us, he needed something to assuage his desire to be remembered for 'something', hence Railway Privatisation.
HIS disasterous policy of following the European exchange rate resulted in Black Wednesday. He later had the gall to balme this on Norman Lamont.
For the Lefties on here, I would remind you that Labour fully supported the shadowing of what became the Euro, so please remember that next time you are tempted to throw it into the ring !
I am sure you may find something that Major may be considered to have achieved. I am at a loss right now.
His longer legacy was to destroy everything that we won between 1979 and 1992, and give us the current corrupt, incompetent, lying and vindictive Government.
Thanks a million John !
