Thread Name: BS: Margaret Thatcher's Birthday-13 Oct 1925
Subject: RE: BS: Margaret Thatcher's Birthday.
There is no doubt that Gordon Brown was inept as a communicator, but it goes back to my 'head/heart' definition.
Both Maggie and Tony were 'head' politicians, they saw it as a business, more than a belief.
Those who are 'heart' politicians, never really do very well in the cut throat world of 'Real Politik'
Gordon was on casualty, Michael Foot was another.
Just think back to the list labelled 'Best PM/Leader, we NEVER had. People like John Smith, and Ian Macleod, conviction politicians to a man.
There is a certainty that a governement made up of people who were ruled by their hearts, and not their heads, would fail miserably.
