John Major

On this day seventeen years ago John Major was elected leader of the Conservative Party. (BBC On This Day: 1990: Tories choose Major for Number 10)

Sir John, as he is now, is one of the nicest people in politics in the last seventy years and a wonderful witty speaker as I was reminded last night at a Tory Reform Group dinner.

Without him this country would be a very different place today.

I will agree on his niceness Tim, but the last sentence I am unsure about ;)
