I'd have to be an experienced psychiatrist to understand why they think it would be better to have a president as our head of state, but the 'what if' scenarios of such a pipedream can be quite entertaining.

The idea of Presidents Blair, Brown and Cameron spur an instant shudder, but imagine President Thatcher with Norman Tebbit as Prime Minister?

I can't imagine that the ultra socialism which is the bedrock of the republican movement would have fancied that.
