Britain should seize this chance to strike a new deal with Europe - Sir John Major

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. In hindsight, I think it can be reasonably said that Major's Government was more competent than the ones that followed... =(
     
    • Like Like x 1
  2. Indeed, and with the exception of Churchill and possibly Thatcher the same could be said about Disraeli.
     
  3. There was never much wrong with Major's economic policy once he'd made the decision to dump the Euro experiment. That is why Blair continued with the policies for as long as he could get away with (ie until Brown stamped his foot and demanded more fiscal control).

    Everything else Major did was rubbish and smacked of weakness and lack of leadership. No discipline, no authority, no respect and ultimately poor judgement on most issues (not just Edwina!)
     
  4. Better than CMD though!
