Hitler beats Blair in leadership poll

As if things couldn’ t get any worse – just seen this on Sky news website………
Is it possible that the current endless offering of programmes about the Nazis etc could have altered some people’s views of Hitler – another case of revisionism – albeit very slowly?Hitler Beats Blair In Leadership Poll

Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler has beaten Tony Blair in a new poll as one of the greatest leaders of all time.A firm asked 1,000 business leaders who they rated as as the most impressive leaders of men throughout history.The German fuehrer came 20th in the list while the Prime Minister could only manage 25th.

Top of the list is Hitler’s nemisis Winston Churchill. Gandhi, the man who led India to independence, is second.

Former South African president Nelson Mandela is third.

Ex-Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher – dubbed The Iron Lady – came in at number eight.

Top sportsman was Lance Armstrong, the cycling legend who beat cancer and went on to claim a record number of Tour de France wins.

Some dictators made it into the top poll for leadership skills other than Hitler.

Mao-Tse-Tung, who led the Chinese communist revolution, came in at 31.

Veteran Cuban leader Fidel Castro was 41st.

The list was complied ahead of a conference of business leaders to be held in London in October.

Organiser Rosalind Oxley said: “Bob Geldof just about makes it into our Top 50.

“But it is slightly disturbing to see him beaten by Hitler, who also ranks higher than the Dalai Lama and Mother Teresa.”
