Cameron voted one of 'least-favourite post-war' UK PMs.

London, Sept 17 ( ANI ): David Cameron has been voted the third least favourite post-war British Prime Minister, according to a survey.

In a poll of voters over the age of 50, the current UK Prime Minister is also only the sixth best qualified to lead Britain out of the current economic downturn.

The findings contained in a poll of over 10,000 members of Saga, the over-50s group, also showed that Cameron was deemed to care less about the UK and its people than eight former leaders, including James Callaghan, Gordon Brown and Harold Wilson.

The poll, carried out exclusively for The Daily Telegraph, showed that nearly 34 per cent, respondents named Margaret Thatcher as their favorite pos-war PM while 13 per cent said Winston Churchill.

Harold Wilson achieved nine per cent of the votes followed by Tony Blair, the report said.

Cameron came eleventh on the list with one per cent of the vote.

According to the poll, he beat only Alec Douglas-Home and Anthony Eden in the voting. ( ANI )
