Buffoon as I recall, one of those patronising clowns that should have been smothered at birth.

Callaghan was a good Prime Minister under some very difficult circumstances, should be a pretty big funeral.

Jim became the oldest ever ex-PM today, overtaking how old Harold MacMillan when he died...

 

Perhaps time for him to bow out...

Jimbo is indeed the longest lived ex-PM as I wrote elsewhere in this forum.

 

I did not know there was a thread on him as when I searched I did not use his Sunday Best monicker.

I believe Jim Callaghan has been dead from the neck up since at least 1960! ;)

To quote Jim:

 

"Crisis, what crisis?"

 

At least he was a real Labour man. Not like the arrogant buffoon in Number 10 at the moment.

Audrey, Lady Callaghan of Cardiff died yesterday aged 89. The Callaghans were married for 66 years.

 

I seem to recall their daughter married Peter Jay the British ambassador to the USA.

Should the title of this thread not be: "James, Lord Callaghan, ex-PM"?

Yep, number 3 this year. Pity Prince Rainier isn't on this time (last time was 1997), as I suspect he's a gonner soon....

The only place he's still alive is this site. C'mon guys, get the red line up and claim VICTORY. I'll be devastated if I find you taking Easter off. Could've sworn death was at 24/7365 occupation.

He'll be getting fulsome tributes in the broadsheets tomorrow, which was more than he ever got in office. Guardian and Mirror aside, the press was vehemently anti-Labour in the 1970s. Now they tend to be seen as the lesser of two evils, except by the Mail and Express of course.

I think there should be a state funeral for Lord Callaghan, we haven't have a non-royal state funeral since Sir Winston Churchill's in 1965 and after that the next one was for the Queen Mother in 2002.

I think there should be a state funeral for Tony Blair sometime in the next few weeks as well.
