'best' and 'tory leader' don't really seem to go together :-)
I'm as far from the Tories as you can imagine. If I were to choose though the one I respect the most would be John Major.
Probably John Major. Howard was a really poor Home Secretary so that always colours my opinions of him.
They were all poor, and so far they have all been failures too - although Cameron's term has yet to pan out.If he doesn't get a majority in Parliament though, he will have fallen far short of people's expectations.
Talk about best of a bad bunch! It would really have to be William Hague. He was unfortunate enough to be leader at a time when Blair could do no wrong (rather like being Kinnock when Thatcher was in power). He's been a much better politician since.I attended an edition of Question Time at the ICC circa 2003 with Ian Duncan Smith (as the sole panelist) where he was less than impressive - arrogant too. The less said about the other two the better.
I'm not a Tory voter either. Realistically though, Cameron has handed the party their best electoral hope since the early90s'. So it has to be him.
Jeez, do I have to pick?Major is the best because he is the longest ago and wasn't as bad as the others. Hague was a tit but is better now, IDS was awful and perhaps the worst but Howard tried some weak, weak policy so maybe him as the worst.
