Well, no, not seriously. It’s from a YouGov poll and we all know that YouGov was co-founded by a current Tory MP and is run by a former Tory Parliamentary candidate.
Still, one cannot help but agree with This Writer’s friend Kanjin Tor, who tweeted that the poll was “Trolling the nation”.
YouGov’s latest poll has found that David Cameron is the most popular British prime minister since Margaret Thatcher.
Cameron, who resigned as Conservative leader after campaigning for the losing side in the EU referendum, was rated “good or great” by 32% of respondents. This was higher than Tony Blair on 20% and fellow Tory John Major on 14%.
Thatcher, whose “hard” brand of conservatism made her one of the most divisive prime ministers in British history, was rated “good or great” by 43% of respondents — including 20% of Labour voters.
