Thatcher, followed by Cameron. I guess May is my least favourite because of clear incompetence in handling the Brexit proces (or maybe Heath as the last wet leader). Then again, that might not have happened if Cameron hadn't screwed up. But Thatcher is my clear favourite even though I'm not as enthusiastic about her as I used to be.

Never mind. Didn't know sh**t about him (and also about Smith and Howard). Just figured that the further back, the less bad it would get. But looking at his Wiki, ehh... no.

I do have a soft spot for Heseltine, even though he was (and is) mad as a box of frogs. Actually, mainly because of that tbh, although it was probably less amusing when he had actual power.

I dont know how a twelve year old would know who Heath was in 1961 and recognize him a decade later.

Unless the twelve year old was one of Heath's favourites

If you ask me Heath was the worst PM in the last 60 years, and this is coming from someone that would be a staunch partisan Tory.

For whom my favorite Tory leader in the last 50 years was, I'm not sure.

In a tabloid, he accused Heath of being a rapist and a satanist, claiming just one instance of the former, IIRC. Nobody else has claimed either.

This may seem like an odd choice but I think I'll go with John Major, I've always had a soft spot for him

Cameron minus his handling of the referendums.
Honourable mention has to go to Ruth Davidson. Plan on canvassing for her in 2021

Why was IDS disliked?

Some Tories called IDS a racist in August 2001
