Then There Were Three

Three years ago, in 2002, the Queen gathered all the living Prime Ministers at Downing Street to celebrate her Golden Jubilee. In March this year former Labour PM James Callaghan passed away. Yesterday the previous Ted Heath elected PM in 1970 also went to the green front benches in the sky.

His Legacy:
  • First Tory to be voted leader by his fellow MPs
  • He took the UK into the Common Market
  • He suffered due the 70's Middle East oil crisis
  • The three day week power cuts
  • A sucessful sailer
  • First Leader to lose his leadership to woman
  • Over 50 years as an MP, never taking a seat in the Lords
