Best Prime Ministers of United Kingdom


The Top Ten

1 Winston Churchill 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.

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. - Britgirl

He did not try to even stop the Bengal Famine as they were not white, and it killed 4 million people. He built concentration camps in Kenya, and was racist against anyone not of his race (including Gandhi). Did defeat the Nazis, but Churchill and Hitler were similar, in that they were bot racist and built concentration camps.

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.

Whoever is spamming about him being racist and being like Hitler, you seriously never payed attention to history. - AStumpedHuman

2 Clement Attlee

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.

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.

The only government that really made ordinary peoples lives better.

Without doubt the first, last and always of prime ministers. Long live the NHS.

3 Margaret Thatcher 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 is currently more.

Blair better than Margaret Thatcher? Blair was a traitor who would have sold his country to keep his sorry ass and his excuse for a political party in power. Margaret Thatcher saved this country from ruin at the hand of lunatic socialists

A strong women with new ideas based on US free market economy she did what she said she would. It's a shame these actions including spending cuts lead to a 3.5 million unemployed, strikes after strikes and a UK recession created by her actions! Her privatisation of British Gas made bills higher, her de-regulation of the banks caused the 2008 crash. A huge rise inequality and a decline in manufacturing still felt today!

She could be nasty and vicious her party threw her out in 1990 due to this, she did not listen or compromise her views not a quality of a good leader.

She demonstrates perfectly the flaws of capitalism.

Come on, besides the Korean Peninsula, this women is proof capitalism works better than socialism.

Margaret Thatcher was the best Prime Minister the UK has ever had. - MarkB56

4 Tony Blair 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 more.

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!

All members of the Fabian Society, are Terrorist's, including Tony Blair.

One terrible misjudgement over the Iraq war, but otherwise a great leader and true statesman, but with compassionate social democrat tendencies. Made Labour electable after 20 years and Foot, Benn and a young Corbyn destroyed the party

5 John Major

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.

6 Harold Wilson

Good pm

7 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".

8 David Lloyd George

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

A great leader during World War I.

Amazing leader in World War 1

Because we're related.

10 David Cameron 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's terrible he's trying to get rid of horrible histories - coolguy101

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

What is with the idiots accusing everyone of being a Zionist. Grow up!

The Contenders

11 William Pitt the Younger
12 Neville Chamberlain

The appeasement policy was a bad idea - RickyReeves

13 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.

14 Robert Walpole
15 Gordon Brown

Best pm Britain has ever had

16 Alec Douglas-Home
17 James Callaghan
18 Edward Heath

Kiddy-fiddler and friends of Jimmy Savile.

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.

She has been the Member of Parliament for Maidenhead since 1997. May identifies as a one-nation conservative and has been characterised as a liberal conservative.

She's the worst

Animal cruelty loving b. Wants to bring back hunting, barbaric twit. Thanks goodness Brian May slammed her.

Only just begun as PM but I think she'll be great.

Driving the UK into a concrete wall. Everyone is hating Brexit, yet she is letting it go ahead.
