Paul Burgin has set the challenge; "which ten political leaders from the three main parties since 1945, living or dead, would I invite to dinner?"
You've narrowed the choice a bit there, haven't you Paul?
I mean there isn't much room for picking anyone other than who you have chosen. In total there is only 10 Labour leaders to choose from and 10 Tory leaders (5 in the last 8 years) and the Lib Dems have had 5 leaders since they formed in 1988, the Liberals before them, 4 leaders and the SDP 3. A total of 32 leaders to choose from.
But for the record...
TONY BLAIR (to see if he really can play the guitar).
MARGARET BECKETT (Because very few people know she was the only ever female Labour leader - for 2 months).
MICHAEL FOOT (he was greatest leader and the press were bastards for picking on a man for wearing a dufflecoat - also once wrote some great lyrics for a song about him).
Michael Foot was a great bloke, I don't care what they say.
Just because he wore a dufflecoat on remembrance day.
GEORGE BROWN ('cos I haven't got a clue who he is).
MARGARET THATCHER (because I want to test out Morrissey's theory that her head really would lok nice in a guillotine).
(sir)ANTHONY EDEN (I always thought those Harry Enfield sketch's of the pompous 1950's twats were great. Now I could meet one in real life).
IAN DUNCAN SMITH (Find out if he knows anything at all about alleviating poverty, Cameron has put him head of his poverty commission for some unknown reason).
MICHAEL HOWARD or WILLIAM HAGUE (Doesn't matter which, although getting Howard to say 'peeple' would be a good laugh. Either would do just to remind me how great recent Tory leaders have been (for us, ha ha!) and also to make me feel less bald).
Liberal thingy parties.
JEREMY THORPE (But I wouldn't allow him to bring a gun, in case he shot someone's dog)
Finally...Monster Raving Loony Party.
SCREAMING LORD SUTCH (To add a bit of sanity to the discussion)
Definitely wouldn't invite...
CHARLES KENNEDY (wouldn't be able to afford all the booze!).
