The Tories’ Iron Lady topped a survey in which MPs rated every leader between 1945 and 2010.

She beat Labour’s Clement Attlee into second place. David Cameron, who has not yet completed his tenure at No 10, was omitted from the University of London study.

In it, MPs were invited to evaluate the success of each Prime Minister, with answers recorded on a 0-10 scale.

Mrs Thatcher, who led the country between 1979 and 1990 and died last April aged 87, gained an average of 7.4, just ahead of Mr Attlee’s 7.3. Labour’s Tony Blair came third with 6.8.

Sir Winston Churchill, whose second stint as PM was between 1951 and 1955, came fourth with 6.5. Gordon Brown came bottom in the survey, with an average of only 3.3.
