Top 10 Worst Prime Ministers of the United Kingdom

The Top Ten
1 Boris Johnson Alexander Boris de Pfeffel Johnson is an English politician, popular historian, and journalist who has served as Prime Minister of the United Kingdom from 2019 to 2022 and Member of Parliament for Uxbridge and South Ruislip since 2015. Johnson previously served as the MP for Henley from 2001 until 2008, and as Mayor of London from 2008 to 2016. A member of the Conservative Party, Johnson considers himself a "One-Nation Tory" and has been described as a libertarian due to his association with both economically liberal and socially liberal policies.

Utterly toxic, a pathogen in human form. One of few organisms that will directly cause negative effects on every human it comes into contact with.

The ultimate charlatan. Radiates chaos and misery. Should be kept inside a lead box under the sea. He'll be back soon, and God help us.

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.

This guy is the reason why we didn't exit lockdown permanently during spring-summer (early autumn at most) of 2020. His incompetence has my city Liverpool and other places in England and the rest of the uk up the wall. I hope this pot noodle (pot of noodles for you yanks and others who might not have it) and his gang of idiots are never allowed to run the country again permanently. Anti Tory Organisation everyone I am a liberal conservatives out they don't know how to run a country because they care for themselves and themselves only. They will never start caring unless we go down to 10 Downing Street and meet the man himself and start tearing his office down, until he gives in to the demands of the ATO. This man is somehow worse than Theresa May who I already despised. I say we eliminate him and finally get a prime minister with a brain cell. They don't have to be any sort of Winston Churchill but they certainly cannot be any Boris Johnson of any sort.

2 Neville Chamberlain

Neville Chamberlain did not stand up to Adolf Hitler in the early part of the 1930s and did not do anything to prevent World War Two from kicking off. this made him a weak leader as Britain was sitting on its bottom hoping that everything will calm down. Neville Chamberlain made chronic errors in the first year of the war, this is because he still believed the war could end before anyone was killed when that wasn't the reality.

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.

3 Theresa May Theresa Mary May, MP served as Prime Minister of the United Kingdom and Leader of the Conservative Party from July 2016 to July 2019, when Boris Johnson became PM. She has been a Member of Parliament for Maidenhead since 1997. May identifies as a one-nation conservative and has been characterised as a liberal conservative.

Theresa May pulled a snap general election in 2017 losing her majority in the process. she then had to face countless rebellions of her own party during the Brexit negotiations, which fractured the party and parliament so much it turned into a civil war in the Commons. treason may had no control over her party and the government. she suffered British political history record defeats in the House of Commons and failed to deliver Brexit.

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.

4 David Cameron David William Donald Cameron is a British politician who is at present the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, Leader of its Conservative Party, and Member of Parliament for the Oxfordshire constituency of Witney.

Shocking in his lack of preparation for Brexit. Nothing was tested, nothing was done and we have ended up with this nightmare of a ludicrous decision.

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.

5 Margaret Thatcher Margaret Hilda Thatcher, Baroness Thatcher, was a British stateswoman and politician who was the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom from 1979 to 1990 and the Leader of the Conservative Party from 1975 to 1990. She was the longest-serving British Prime Minister of the 20th century and was the first ever woman to be Prime Minister, having defeated James Callaghan in the 1979 General Election.

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

She was also the most divisive British prime minister of modern times, admired and reviled by a divided British society into "us" and "them" and failed miserably to create any kind of understanding or harmony. Many would describe her as a hardhearted bitch without an ounce of compassion.

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.

6 Edward Heath

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

7 Gordon Brown James Gordon Brown is a British Labour Party politician who was the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom and Leader of the Labour Party from 2007 until 2010. He previously served as Chancellor of the Exchequer in the Labour Government from 1997 to 2007. Brown was a Member of Parliament from 1983 to 2015, first for Dunfermline East and later for Kirkcaldy and Cowdenbeath.

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.

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

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.

8 James Callaghan

I suppose he helped by following Wilson's recipe to the extent that it became blindingly obvious that 70s lefties couldn't run the country. So obvious that Foot, Kinnock, etc didn't get anywhere

Conservative what can I say.

9 Frederick North, Lord North

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.

One of the early Eton boys that managed to knacker the UK by being inept. Lost the America's by being a knob end.

Lost the US we have, have we?

10 Robert Peel

I hate this guy.

The Contenders
11 Anthony Eden

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"

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.

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.

12 Liz Truss

Elizabeth Mary trust was the shortest Prime Minister of the United kingdoms history serving for only 50 days. in that time she had to deal with the aftermath of Queen Elizabeth the 2nd death but she also crashed the economy and created chaos in the House of Commons

She was just useless and wholly incompetent, I would suggest walking and waving would be about the most she could manage at one time.

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

13 Tony Blair Anthony Charles Lynton Blair, originally known as Anthony Blair, but later as Tony Blair, is a British Labour Party politician, who served as the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, from 1997 to 2007. From 1983 to 2007, Blair was the Member of Parliament for Sedgefield, and from 1994 to 2007, Blair was the Leader of the Labour Party.

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!

14 John Major

John Major was a weak leader who couldn't get control of his party and it really showed when he went up against Tony Blair. in 1992 he suffered a loss of majority but still won the election before in 1997 after a vote of no confidence he was defeated by Tony Blair in spectacular fashion.

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!

The greyest of grey men

15 Stanley Baldwin
16 Rishi Sunak

He's completely worthless and not worth the dirt at the bottom of our shoes. Just listen to him talk, "we are here together to help the cost of living crisis". Rishi Sunak was partly to blame for the cost of living crisis, an utter tool and puppet whose completely retarded, incapable, redundant and incompetent.

He is just as bad, he ruins everything.

Is more in touch with the public than I am with owning a cattery on Mars. Utter bellend.

The most out of touch person I have ever seen he even waves like a robot

17 Alec Douglas-Home
18 Harold Wilson

Quintessential 50s/60s lefty panderer; did most of his damage in the 70s

19 Harold Macmillan
20 William Cavendish-Bentinck
21 H. H. Asquith
22 Spencer Perceval
23 Winston Churchill Sir Winston Leonard Spencer-Churchill was a British statesman who was the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom from 1940 to 1945 and again from 1951 to 1955. Churchill was also an officer in the British Army, a historian, and a writer.

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!

24 Clement Attlee

Another weak person
