It was always likely to end this way.  But we wanted to be absolutely sure.

Six per cent of the panel believe that Boris Johnson, in leading the UK out of the EU, has thereby already exceeded the achievements of Margaret Thatcher.

That’s the same percentage of those who either refuse to rate him at all (two per cent) or who are dismissive of his smashing election victory (four per cent).

A full 88 per cent, almost nine in ten, believe that Johnson’s done very well to date…but has way to go before he can be judged to be Margaret Thatcher’s equal.

Very sensible of them too.
