I believe this question has been settled for some time now.

clibinarium, I just had a flashback to every political discussion I have ever witnessed.

British academics feel it would be the Marquis of Salisbury – but other people think of Gladstone, Peel or Disraeli – I like Disraeli for his quotes (and of course the cool song)

Would it depend on your politics, Disraeli if you are a conservative or Gladstone if you are more centre left? What about the Duke of Wellington? Having been to the Wellington Monument in Dublin and having a long chat with an old Irish guy and talked about catholic emancipation, would that put Old Hook Nose in the mix as well?

It's hard to say, Ian. 19th Century political parties don't really equate to the late 20th/early 21st Century political parties…

Salisbury rules, OK?

I can reel off the names, but I'm singularly ignorant about their relative qualities.
