Best Prime Ministers of United Kingdom

The Top Ten

1 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.

Winston Churchill was easily the best. Led the British during WW2 and pretty much kept Britain motivated.

Totally agree that Winston Churchill should be first. He brought a whole nation together during WWII with his uplifting speeches and his "Keep calm and carry on" message to its people. I admire him. He's a hero in my eyes.

A towering intellect and historical figure. A liberal radical reformer, a true Conservative stalwart, a winner of wars and a master orator. Nobody of any political stripe even comes near.

Winston Churchill, should have been decapitated as a baby, so he would never have been racist or killed innocent people outside his own racist/terrorist country. He was a White Supremacist, who supported Zionism and the racist/terrorist creation of the Israeli Terrorist state out of Palestine. ALL his supporters in Britain and outside it, are all racists, bigots and terrorists and also deserve to suffer the same consequences, Churchill inflicted on his victims. Churchill, hated ethics, decency, equality, humanity, sanity and morality, because he was a Zionist/Ultra Zionist.

2 Clement Attlee

The only leader to successfully implement some socialism into their country besides FDR.

The most definitive example of why Socialism as a doctrine fails in practise just as badly as it fails in theory. Easily the most overrated Prime Minister in history. Thank this mans administration for Britain being the sick man of Europe for so long, creating wholly destitute welfare dependent sections of this once proud nation.

A great man who made Britain work for the many and not the few. He implemented socialist policies without creating a socialist country; honestly a disgrace that he's not top of the list. The reforms he introduced were well overdue and Britain wouldn't be Britain without him. His memory is our greatest weapon.

Rebuilt a bombed out and bankrupt country by understanding that the only way was to maximise exports and minimise imports. At the same time they gave us universal healthcare and other welfare benefits.

3 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 ...read more.

I thought she was a very good leader. Stood up to Communism in the same mold Churchill attempted to.

Hands down the best. Introduced free market economics to England, making London one of the largest thriving economies, dealt with the union strikes and made it affordable for the working man to buy a house. Amazing women, love or hate her- you gave to admire her

Awful. She is right wing and she was the opposite of Robin Hood.

Thatcher saved this country from a communist labour party who forced private company's over to the public at their expense these people worked hard for what they had only for labour to take it away and bankrupt decent honest people they gave money to people who didn't want to work and that's acceptable!? They caused the winter of discontent and rats cats and wild dogs had a field day they nearly bankrupted GB and turned us into a third world country what that achieved after those commie dim wits was nothing short of a miracle poor hugos needs to put some glasses on and look at the state labour left us in everyone on strike and no earning poor Hugo hasn't got a clue what he's talking about it bet his granddad was a commie miner

4 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 ...read more.

Winston will usually be seen as the greatest but if you look at things in detail, it's Blair

Blair's policies help reshaped Britain thanks to his reforms and policies. However, if he didn't accept President Bush's decisions to be part of the war in the Middle East. He would've been a better PM.

Fundamentally destroyed this country in every conceivable way. Gave rise to Scottish nationalism, bent over backwards to Irish terrorists, sold the country away to Europe, engaged in a reckless public spending programme that left wounds open towards a crash caused by left-wing monetary policy. Literally nothing good came from allowing this monster into office.

In his first term he was radical he introduced a minimum wage, spent more the NHS and schools which were left to crumble under the Conservatives.

Not very left wing he did not re-nationalise anything and did not increase taxes on business, his big mistake was Iraq!

5 Harold Wilson

A very smart man, who, despite flaws, did a tremendous amount of good for the country

the best pm. helped the lgbtq community by legalising being gay which at the time was almost unheard of. he also came from exremly humble backgrounds in Huddersfield and so helped the working class a great deal.

Very good pm

Good pm

6 John Major

Laid the foundation for the Good Friday Agreement- he was not given sufficient credit for doing so- Tony Blair took too much of the credit. Left the British economy in best shape for many years.

A Conservative from a modest background, won the 1992 election against the odds. From 1990- 1997 he lead a fairly united front reigning in the extremes of Thatcherism. He signed the EU Treaty, but found it difficult to lead a party of which many wanted to exit the EU. He also looked boring compared the charismatic Tony Blair, but major had more substance.

7 David Lloyd George

A great leader during World War I.

Radical modern thinker ahead of his time. Many character flaws but as a prime minister, He was fantastic in the First World War and was a radical chancellor

Amazing leader in World War 1

Brought in the welfare state, won ww1 and was first non establishment pm

8 Harold Macmillan

"You've never had it so good" speech.
One of his innovations at the Treasury was the introduction of premium bond.

In 1928 Macmillan was described by his political hero, and now Parliamentary colleague, David Lloyd George, as a "born rebel".

9 Benjamin Disraeli Benjamin Disraeli, 1st Earl of Beaconsfield, KG, PC was a British politician and writer, who twice served as Prime Minister.

The only Jewish one is history? David Cameron is jewish

Great PM. Believed in Conservative principles like strong defense, respecting tradition and different social classes. But at the same time cared about the working class and those less fortunate.

A Conservative PM, the only Jewish one is history

10 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.

A lifelong cancerous tumour in human form, a racist, bigot, fraudulent, extremist and a terrorist, who loves spilling non-Jewish blood against Humanity.

Had to sacrifice his disabled son, in order to become a Rothschild Zionist Prime Minister of his own evil country.

He enjoys killing Disabled people, including his fello racist dead son, Ivan.

He's terrible he's trying to get rid of horrible histories

I thought he could've been a good leader.

The Contenders

11 William Pitt the Younger

Became MP at 24 years old. Restored national finances, Protected Britain from French invasion. Served for nearly 20 years.

12 William Gladstone

The empire grew greatest during his reign, he helped the Irish situation, enfranchised a huge percentage of the population.

Social Welfare policies and Ireland. Should be # 1

Promoted private activity and small government. Grew the country's wealth so fast by nearly destroying taxes. People had so much money to spend and goods to choose from due to tariffs being cut and hammered down.

Who in their right mind would want to fight with their best customer. Also fostered peaceful relations with foreign countries.

13 Herbert Asquith
14 Neville Chamberlain

The appeasement policy was a bad idea

Total failure.

The worst PM

15 Robert Walpole

It was Walpole

16 Robert Peel

Father of the modern day police force. Should be in the top 5.

No brainer, really. Himself, Earl Grey and the Duke of Wellington were the most feared politicians during the late 1820s and the early 1830s during William IV's reign. This man was quiet, unassuming but unbelievably clever. He even ran his own party himself for a while since most of the ministers were against him after the repeal of the corn laws in 1846. But this iconic man changed the face for the conservative party ever since he introuced a police force that was soon to be widespread across the UK, and the fact that hed altered and set up many policies as home secretary during the late 1820s amd early 1840s as PM, that would've had proven vital in the future, and boy most of them did. He'd eat Major, Thatcher Cameron and May for breakfast! Sir Robert was the first British prime minister to be photographed, sometime in the late 1840's apparently, but its not yet displayed on the internet.

17 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 ...read more.

Why is everyone hating on Theresa?

Why don't you try running Brexit when every MP changes their mind every two seconds!

I do feel sorry for he she tried and tried, but FAILED!

She's the worst

I have no confidence in her.

I voted for the picture

18 Gordon Brown

Very underrated. More talent than most.

Utter fool. Was about as Statesman Like as Neil Kinnock at a union rally

Best pm Britain has ever had

Was an amazing prime minister wish he’d have kicked the tories down the toad so they wouldn't have rose like they have now

19 Alec Douglas-Home
20 Stanley Baldwin

The worst prime minister ever

21 Boris Johnson Alexander Boris de Pfeffel Johnson is an English politician, popular historian, and journalist who has served as 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 ...read more.

#buzzcutsforboris love this man has such character and energy that our country needs to escape Brussels

Butchered coronavirus by:
No testing
Lockdown too late
Schools closing too late
Care home failure
Potentially 60k deaths+
'its unlikely a care home resident will get covid 19'
No trade deal with eu yet
Second highest death toll itw from coronavirus
Stating herd immunity as a strategy other than a lockdown which kills virus
No quarantine for travellers until May
Letting flights from Italy, Spain, China, USA come in anyway
No face mask advice until May
No PPE for NHS doctors
Nurses still no payrise
No plan as of yet how to guide ourselves out of a huge recession
No tests for care home residents + workers

He is the best man in the world!

Is he mentally stable?

22 Edward Heath

Kiddy-fiddler and friends of Jimmy Savile.

Pro-Europe, pro-progress.

Conservatives answer to Harold Wilson, but his party like to forget him despite his stunning 1970 election victory. Why? He got the UK in the EU supported then ironically by Thatcher and increased coal miners wages like the unions wanted.
He was a compassionate Conservative not a stingy right-wing one like Thatcher or Cameron who hate the poor.

Probably the worst PM ever.

23 Earl Grey

Initiated the abolition of slavery, the 1832 Reform Act and held together a very varied government. The most underrated British Prime Minister.

Great guy. Really. Definitely underrated

yum! _tea!

24 James Callaghan
25 Robert Gascoyne-Cecil, 3rd Marquess of Salisbury
