Clement Attlee – wow!

Why is this man not mentioned more often? Clement Attlee was voted the best PM in the 20th century in 2004, by academics. The general public seems to have little awareness. But what achievements! He even had Margaret Thatcher’s respect (although she started the undoing of his work).

And his notorious tendency to be laconic in his answers to press and the like – how refreshing. I think I have a new hero.
