Wait, really? This doesn't seem to have much in terms of consistency. If you voted for Major in 92, I'd imagine you'd vote for him in '97 unless you were a swing voter. Also, Ted Heath was pretty incompetent.

Attlee and Thatcher both won large majorities, so a significant portion of the electorate must have done just that.

Of course. "Swing voters" are always switching from a party to another for no other reason than bad mood, and don't understand a sh*t about what parties actually stand for. I'd expect however that someone on a political forum would realize that Thatcher's only accomplishment was to destroy everything Attlee built.

Attlee was IMO, though I agree that Blair, Brown and Milliband, maybe Wilson weren't.

Labor for pretty much all elections. Although during the Blair/Brown years I probably would've vote Liberal Democrat or Green.
