    Ah, OK, I thought the dates were out a bit. Thanks.

    I think the newspaper article I dug out is well put; I suspect the circumstances are very different today especially the lack of point in tactical voting.

    Yes, I think a black party leader could find themselves in No.10 after a general election. I can't think of any imminent contenders but I'm sure there will be some in the future.

    Perhaps we might even have a Labour leader who is black and female. However, despite their constant aspirations at political correctness, they have not even got half way there.
    The Tories are on their 2nd female prime minister.
    They took your country from you, now they've taken your democracy too.
    And "they" are the elites, those who hate the culture of the people, the values of the people, the democracy of the people.

    What, like Diane Abbot you mean? That's all we need! lol
    There are none who do so much harm as those obsessed with doing good.

    The longer the truth remains untold, the deeper it gets buried.

    No, I was suggesting one that might be compus mentus, like Margaret Thatcher was. Not sure about Theresa May, mind you.

    Nah, The Blessed Margaret (PBUH lol) was truly a one-off. A female Nigel Farage, if you will?

    An advance on Labour then

    My real fear is that Britain will follow the lead of the USA which has surely seen its last white, married, heterosexual man on the Democrat party ticket to run for the White House

    Bit genderist if you will pardon my saying so Barry.

    Why cant we have a Labour leader who is black and transgender?

    I know the Tories had Ted Heath, but he was white.
