Megan reports that, “On Saturday, Tony Blair will become Britain’s longest continuously serving Labour prime minister.”

Interestingly, there have only been five total:

    James Ramsay MacDonald 1924-25 and 1929-30/34*
    Clement Attlee, 1945-51
    Harold Wilson 1964-70 and 1974-75
    James Callaghan 1976-79
    Tony Blair 1997-present

Blair is easily my favorite, though!
