PostGRcade Decides...Greatest Chocolate Bar
by Moggy » Tue Mar 07, 2017 2:24 pm

This is a thread where GRcade decides who/what is the greatest ever in a variety of subjects.

First up was Prime Ministers:

Now obviously there have been a strawberry float load of Prime Ministers and so we will stick to those that were in power during our lifetimes. I know we have some golden oldies on the forum, but I am starting at the 60s which actually means we go back to 1957. If anybody was born before that, then tough gooseberry fool.

I am also not including the current Prime Minister, not because she is evil, but because it is hard to judge somebody who is still doing the job.

So GRcade, who is the best ever?

RESULTS:

Harold MacMillan - 5%
Alex Douglas-Hume - No votes
Harold Wilson - 5%
Edward Heath - 3%
James Callaghan - No votes
Margaret Thatcher - 16%
John Major - 8%
Tony Blair - 51%
Gordon Brown - 8%
David Cameron - 3%


With over 50% of the vote, GRcade declared Tony Blair the greatest Prime Minister (post 1960).

Next up was movies:

Gone with the Wind - 8%
Avatar – 0%
Star Wars - 60%
Titanic - 4%
The Sound of Music – 0%
E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial - 4%
The Ten Commandments – 0%
Doctor Zhivago – 0%
Jaws - 20%
Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs - 4%


With 60% of the vote, Star Wars (A New Hope) was declared the best of the biggest movies.

Next up was the best UK cities (excluding London)!

Birmingham - 17%
Leeds - No votes
Glasgow - 12%
Sheffield - 2%
Bradford - No votes
Edinburgh - 21%
Liverpool - 12%
Manchester - 26%
Bristol - 10%
Wakefield - No votes


With 26% of the vote, Manchester was declared the greatest UK city.

Next up was countries!

Denmark - 9%
Switzerland - 9%
Iceland - 22%
Norway - 9%
Finland - 4%
Canada - 26%
Netherlands - 4%
New Zealand - 9%
Australia - No votes
Sweden - 9%


With 26% of the vote, Canada was voted the best country. Well done Rightey, you kicked Manny's arse.

Next up was albums!

Michael Jackson – Thriller - 21%
AC/DC – Back in Black - 13%
Pink Floyd – Dark Side of the Moon - 21%
Whitney Houston/Various Artists – The Bodyguard - 3%
Meat Loaf – Bat Out of Hell - 3%
Eagles – Their Greatest Hits (1971 – 1975) - No votes
Bee Gees/Various Artists – Saturday Night Fever - No votes
Fleetwood Mac – Rumours - 15%
Shania Twain – Come on Over - 15%
Led Zeppelin – Led Zeppelin IV - 10%


With 21% each, Michael Jackson's Thriller and Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon were crowned joint champions!

Next up, chocolate bars!

In my time it was definitely Blair, even though his reputation has obviously been badly tarnished. He's made his way back into my good books for trying to stop Brexit, you know, whatever that actually involves him doing, of which I've seen nothing yet.

I was alive for four of these and only remember three so on that basis I'm going to say Edward Heath

It's like voting for the STI you'd most like to get. Of the ones I remember, no to Maggie T, Major was forgettable (aside from 'Pass the peas Norma'), Blair was a breath of fresh air at first but has been tainted since, for Brown see Major, Cameron was a disaster. If I had a gun to my head then I'd probably go Blair for minimum wage, devolution, independence for the BoE and he actually did manage to reduce the gap between rich and poor for a while.

Nope, I am just curious who GRcade thinks is the best PM in our lifetime(s).

I'm a big fan of politics and have no idea who I'd vote for; I don't know enough in - depth information about the PM's policies prior to Thatcher. I imagine that Blair will win this simply because he's the main (only?) competent politician that most of us are able to remember.

I mean, it's Blair by a huge margin if you ignore the Iraq War but that's a pretty big mark against him now...

If I have to I would say Heath. Yes he strawberry floated up a lot of gooseberry fool such as the three day week but he did help drag us in to some semblance of modern society. He brought in decimalisation and brought us in to the EU.
