Thatcher only PM to boast science degree

Published 02/06/2016

QUB boss Patrick Johnston makes it obvious what he thinks of humanities degrees (News, May 31).

Maybe if he knew a bit more about history he would see that only one UK PM ever achieved the top job with a science degree - Margaret Thatcher.

The others either had no third-level qualifications, law, or a humanities degree.
