Top 10 Worst Prime Ministers of the United Kingdom
Thatcher made being greedy and selfish acceptable. Thatcher was divisive some people lost and some people gained. There was no middle ground. Those who lost were vilified as lazy, scroungers and less than.
She used the police against the British people to smash the unions. She destroyed British manufacturing. She sold off our nationalised industries, claiming this would lead to better, cheaper services, of course it did not.
She sold off our public housing and councils were not even allowed to use the money to build more houses. This led to a housing crisis we are still feeling the effects of today.
She was homophobic and introduced laws, Section 28, which painted homosexuality as "not normal".
She voted against the relaxation of divorce laws. So that as long as the innocent spouse took care not to be caught in adultery, he or she could effectively block the other's divorce and remarriage.
The Poll Tax, a total disaster which moved the ...more
The cleavage between rich and poor is still growing because of her greedy neo-liberalism policies ( with the help of Ronald Reagan ) she took in the late seventies and eighties. While we were slowly recovering of that effect a new organisation in the US ( the Trump organisation ) is starting all over again with their so-called tax cut for corporations. If we wouldn't have politicians as Thatcher, Reagan, Bush etc... in history we wouldn't have irrational politicians like Trump. The global greedy economic society like we have now is for a great part because her past policies. She's dead but unfortunally we still feel her stupid legacy after all this decades she'd left in this world.
A despicable leader who turned Britain in to the battle ground it has continued to be. The Police versus the Miners, the rich versus the poor, the aspirational at the expense of the vulnerable. A shame on our nation and is only second to Johnson in terms of her sheer inability to empathise with the people she led.
Purest of all evils.She conspires with the devil to this day to ensure Conservative governance in this country, namely Blair, Cameron and Johnson.
A shameful charlatan who who will say anything to gain 'a like'. Not only the worst PM ever but a sad reflection on our broken society that the people of this country are so easily fooled by him. A real shameful period in our history. I hope that in the future people will listen to facts and not lies. The poorest in our society will feel the impact of his term in office for the longest and I hope that they see that the promise of 'sunny uplands' and 'control' are meaningless platitudes that are easy to say but have no positive impact on peoples lives. This man is not a conservative but a selfish arse and proof that a private education does not produce decent citizens.
Not much to add that's already been said. Total incompetent who's a national embarrassment on the international stage. I'm sure he doesn't understand any aspect of the job. Totally winging it.
If he was a footballer, He'd be Ali Dia (he who once played 20 mins for Southampton) who conned his way onto the pitch.
Absolutely the worst PM in history. The UK's 'Trump' moment, where stupidity and deceit ruled over rationality and honesty. Should be in prison
Compulsive liar who shouldn't be left in charge of a block of cheddar! He has literally broken every rule in the book and seems proud of it. Used lies and propaganda to divide the population, and then wrecked the country and the economy.
Met him once. Very very arrogant and completely floored if you asked him a question that challenged his world view. Oxford Graduate
An arrogant, destructive creature. To satisfy fifty seven of his MPs he dragged the UK in to the most incredible error it has ever undertaken. His lack of preparation, good leadership, effective communication and good arguments led this country in the swamp of Brexit. In past times he would have ended up in the Tower of London. Where Boris could join him.
He promised a European referendum and as a statesman should have represented the voice of the people, instead left politics completely and left his country in the mess of which he created. He continued with excessive cuts and privatisation even when the economy was doing relatively well.
London Riots. NHS privatisation. ATOS. Shame on you.
The person who created this whole Brexit mess. Self-admittedly loses sleep about how he messed up which is small consolation for everyone else. Presided over turning the screws on Austerity and screwing workers. Quite the worst of a long and awful list.
A bunch of idiots only a few hundred mikes away are trying to take more lands for themeselves. And what should one do? Completely destroy that nation? No! Chamberlain thought that it was OK to let them have more land! That turned out terribly. Even after World War 2 began, Chamberlain still thought that he could tolerate them.
This guy literally declared war on a group of yobs who are taking land like heck, and then doesn't do a good job of the war effort!
Made terrible decision and could not predict that war will start with or without British Empire.
What an idiot, it's his fault that Britain got attacked in ww2, thank gosh that winston Churchill came.
Weak and wobbly robotic soundbite machine. Her 'performance' in the snap election says it all. U-turning like a spinning top and completely unable to speak to real people. The only reason she hasn't been ousted is that the hard right Brexiteers can manipulate her so easily. She'll be out on her ear on 29/03/19 - just after Scotland declares its independence.
Brexit didn't have to be a disaster, we had options like Norway or Switzerland. But she made hard line choices meaning a deal was impossible. Cameron screwed up, but May destroyed everything
Her Brexit "deal" seems to be a "worst of both worlds" type scenario. I can't tell if she is incompetent or just sabotaging Brexit, but her actions could irreversibly damage Britain.
"Had no other alternative" when she decided to launch missiles at Syria. This woman has lost it.
Conservative what can I say.
Blair should be trialed in the hauge for the killing of more than 1 million Iraqi people most of them children, we will never forget his lies about the war, his dodgy dossier, a blatant liar and a murderer.
George Bush's little pet dog, wherever George threw the stick Tony would come running. Especially if the stick was thrown near a puddle of oik
A thoroughly fake, ineffective and inconsequential politician. All he ever did was drag us into the unjustifiable Iraq War.
Why is this man still in politics? he should be in prison! and he is lecturing the British public to u-turn brexit does not care about people dangerous man evil man and his wife!
No words can describe how this man destroyed our economy. He is vile. Yet he still pops his head up to criticise others when all he done was bring the UK to its knees
Worst Chancellor of Exchequer and worst prime minister. As Chancellor, he sold Gold at a record low price, he raided (taxed) private pensions, he increased borrowing of public money consistently (therefore increased the national debt), he put a 10% tax rate for the lowest earners, and he let property prices skyrocket. As Prime Minister, he failed to steer Britain away from the 2008 recession (causing higher numbers of unemployment), he labelled a lifelong supporter a 'bigot' for her concerns of Labour's mass immigration policy and continued to borrow more money.
Destroyed our state pension taking it from one of the best to the worst in the developed world. Sold our gold for nothing. As he said no more boom and bust until on his watch the biggest bust in a hundred years came of which we may never recover.
There have been some totally awful prime minister's, but this nasty clown had my blood boiling the most, totally inept & was proven to be a nasty piece of work, when his negative comments about a lady who questioned him were recorded...glad we don't have to suffer under him anymore, otherwise we would have gone straight down the toilet.
I hate this guy.
Product of Oxford - is any other criteria required to show you are not fit to PM and have no idea how to represent the wider British citizen.
Boy, was Winston Right when he said Anthony Eden wasn't up for the Job. He served as Prime Minister for two years and within that time he had started a lot of conflict between Israel and Britain. After years of waiting in Winston Churchill's shadow, Eden finally became Conservative Party leader and prime minister in 1955 when Churchill resigned due to ill-health. He may have strengthened the Conservatives majority in an election when he took over, but Eden's premiership was short-lived and ended in failure thanks to the Suez Crisis in which Eden attempted to take the Suez canal. Things did not go to plan and he received "widespread international condemnation"
Kind of a disgrace that Eden isn't on the main list. An imperialist and a failure.
European Union sucks and this nincampoop got us in this darned union. Deserves to be higher than Johnson seeing as Johnson got us out of the EU and helped us get through the Coronavirus
The worst. Got us into the European Union and brought the country to its knees economically.
Overshadowed in later life by sex scandals that never seemed to be answered
The prime Minister who lost America. Before Lord North came to power Britain ruled much of the North America. By the time he left only Canada remained. It was Lord North who picked the fight with the American colonists and managed to oversee a idiotic foreign policy which led to the French, Spanish and even the Dutch siding with the fledgling United States against Britain.
Easily the worst. Totally out of her depth, Clueless arrogance yet doesn't really believe what she is doing anyway. And a terrible cabinet of ideologues incapable of doing the jobs they are in. Makes Johnson look a little competent.
Complete mistake. Her downfall was so rapid it's not even possible to point to a single accomplishment. She added nothing of value to the country and left as soon as she came. What a sad joke
What an idiot! Truly, she is the worst possible PM. She had a plan, and then brought the UK Pound to its lowest value in years. And her chancellor is then fired for following her plan. She is truly the most horrid PM ever b/c she made several u-turns, was stubborn, didn't listen to people and likes taylor swift music. All of this makes her the worst leader of any time period in the UK. Plus, she was considered difficult to work with
She became the prime minister in 2022 after Boris Johnson retired & she's like Margaret Thatcher. She gave handshakes with Queen Elizabeth II & is planning amid a recession.
Anyone fancy a bit of (Edwina) Curry tonight. Spitting image had him down to tea. A grey faced boring man.
Peas are good tonight dear!
I like the difference in the perception of similar events by the leaders of "bad" and "good" countries.
Famine in the USSR in 1933: the whole world screams about the atrocities of bloody Stalin.
Famine in Bengal in 1943: "Hands off Churchill, he is our greatest leader! "
This is called propaganda and double standards.
I am from India and I personally hate this guy for killing 3 to 4 million people from famine. The worst thing however is the way Brits treat him like a god.
Winston Churchill is the stupidest most hypocritical racist that I have ever
Zionist supporter. This man may have fought against Hitler but he only did so for Britain's interests and no one else. He could have stopped the murder of millions of Palestinian deaths but he did nothing.
I seriously don't see how this guy is on here. I mean he did middle finger the publix by accident but I mean, come on, he bloody saved all of britain!
