"Up There With Churchill"

Cherie Blair has said her husband will be regarded in the same league as wartime Prime Minister Winston Churchill

Is the women a raving "Looney"? Or maybe you will agree with her. click here

Screaming Lord Sutch would probably be a better comparison. I think thats where Cherie got her political grounding at one of his concerts.

Tony Blair was a good prime minister but you cannot put him in the same league as Winston Churchill.One a PM in peace time and one a PM in war time I do not think you could compare both in the same category.May have been better than Michael Foot but nowhere as popular as Winston/C.

Tony Blair - Best Prime Minister this Country has had for as long as I can remember, and I remember Churchill as a maverick who changed sides on numerous occasions before being asked to form a government during the second world war. Once that was over the British people voted him out.

churchill had his fair share of flaws. However I believe that they were far outweighed by his talents as a wartime leader.

I really truly do not believe the same can be said of Blair. And my opinion of his wife is even lower than that of heather mills!

Good to see the lunatic fringe exists at all levels of society.

Almost as bad as the suggestion that Thatcher has a State Funeral.

I hope not - she's not dead yet!

Whatever peoples personal political views most now agree that Margaret Thatcher did put this country on a positive course.

Indeed it could be argued that her policies resulted in the strong economy which Bliar/Brown inherited and then squandered.
