Best Prime Ministers of United Kingdomfuadmondeo
The Top Ten
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.

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.
Awesome great pm rebuilt the economy from ww2 and did the best he could - HugoSV 12 Comments
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
Churchill? Best? Absolutely not! Yes, I admire Churchill for uniting us and leading us to victory during WWII, But Lloyd George did the same in WWI. Baroness Thatcher, in my opinion, was a remarkable woman, a role model for young children. She shows little girls around the world that women can achieve exactly the same as men; that we're all equal under the eyes of God, who gives us equal opportunities. She ran our country well. I absolutely admire this legendary woman!
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.
Thatcher is the best - OgnianV 19 Comments
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 partyV 2 Comments
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.
A very smart man, who, despite flaws, did a tremendous amount of good for the country
Very good pm
"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".
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

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.
He was a great pm but a horrible person, he was a good pm for rebuilding our economy but he was racist and islamophobicV 13 Comments
Became MP at 24 years old. Restored national finances, Protected Britain from French invasion. Served for nearly 20 years.
The appeasement policy was a bad idea - RickyReeves
It was Walpole
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.
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.
Probably the worst PM ever. - Mrveteran
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.
Best pm Britain has ever had
Utter fool. Was about as Statesman Like as Neil Kinnock at a union rally
Initiated the abolition of slavery, the 1832 Reform Act and held together a very varied government. The most underrated British Prime Minister.
She's the worst
Animal cruelty loving b. Wants to bring back hunting, barbaric twit. Thanks goodness Brian May slammed her.
She put the NHS and social care in crisis, cut schools, failed to fight climate change. - HugoS
Driving the UK into a concrete wall. Everyone is hating Brexit, yet she is letting it go ahead.
Just the best.
