    I suppose I'd better ask who we think is the worst PM so far this century.

    Too early to say....;)

    But Cameron has made a pretty strong case!:D

    Blair: Two disastrous wars, hundreds of thousands dead, the rise of an Islamic death cult, two nations destabilised and politics reduced to spin.

    Brown: A bad economic collapse.

    Cameron: Playing fast and loose with the constitution, plunging the country into a near 3 year political stalemate, overthrowing Libya so leading to human trafficking, the re-emergence of slavery in Africa and ISIS setting up in Libya.

    May: Not winning an election very well and having to pick up the mess left behind by the boys.

    Toss up between Blair and Cameron. Hmmm... tough.

    I'll go for Cameron... he had Blair as an example of how not to do it and went to did it anyway.

    I will report @GeoffThomas and @lanokia for picking on me because I am elderly and that will be a hate crime soon.

    If it's possible to be fair when comparing PMs, it very much depends on the competence of; and the support they get from their cabinet colleagues, as much as the events they presided over. The two are not necessarily mutually compatible.

    Brown has been the best.

    I love that reasoning. I wouldn't have thought of that. But you're so right.

    I don't rate May very highly but in all fairness, she's really having to play with a terrible hand. She isn't a very good player at the best of times but the only mess that can be pinned on her [if my memory is working right] is the ''Hostile Environment'' policy.

    Brexit is Cameron's fault. Austerity is Brown and Cameron. Education messes can be tied to Gove. The NHS is Hunt. The trains... well they've been a mess all my life.

    Brown didn’t cause the Crash but unregulated banks was a factor which he could have sorted out but didn’t.

    I see that and would like to vote for him but I really want to vote for Blair too. Poor Dr David Kelly and his family. We will never know what went on there but it was all highly suspicious.

    Not really - he killed himself - there are too many conspiracy theories in this world.
