Voters rate Margaret Thatcher the most capable Prime Minister of recent decades, but think Tony Blair was the most likeable, according to a new poll.
The survey for the Reuters/ Ipsos Mori Political Monitor put Lady Thatcher's successor Sir John Major bottom of the rankings on both counts.
Only 1% regarded PM David Cameron the most capable.
Conservative voters preferred Lady Thatcher, with two-thirds saying she was the most capable compared to one-fifth for Cameron.
