breaking bad

Best PM

The BBC are conducting a poll of 'Your favourite post-war Prime Minister' here. I voted Clem Attlee (NHS, post-war nationalisation programme, the Welfare State), even though he was a few years before my time. My second best would have been Harold Wilson (Basic liberal standards like abolishing the death penalty, legalising abortion, sexual freedom, equal pay, comprehensive schooling etc. Plus he kept us out of America's previous stupid war.)
