Prime Minister Thatcher. Mark Thatcher

The rather curious elevation of a callow youth the lead the Pakistan People's Party has led me to ruminate on a few what might have beens:

Mark Thatcher, PM. Euan 'drunk in Leicester Square' Blair, PM, James 'married to a micro celeb none too fussy about keeping her clothes on' Major PM. Randolph 'professional drinker' Churchill, PM.

Further thoughts when they occur to me, with reader submissions most welcome.
