What if Michael Foot had been PM?

Bordering on the ridiculous, that is the question Andrew Roberts attempts to answer.

Here is a more sensible view.

Foot would never have withdrawn HMS Endurance from the South Atlantic, which lead directly to the Falklands War.

Foot’s policies wouldn't being created the industrial wastelands of Scotland and northern England.

There would have been little social division.

And finally:

He would have sent Shirley Williams and Tony Benn, the two architects responsible for keeping Labour out of power for 18 years, to the Tower of London.
