    Just how sure are you? I'm pretty sure he was a British prime minister in the 1880s.
    Benjamin Disraeli was Prime Minister in 1880, not 50 cent.

    Atlee, for changing this country more than anyone since Gladstone.

    Thatcher, for being the last prime minister of this country with any balls (metaphorically speaking)

    Lloyd George, for leaving a socially equitable legacy that every liberal can be proud of.

    This is completely wrong. No prime minister is ever elected by the people. The leader of the largest party is the one who is chosen by the monarch to be prime minister. The people only decide the MP for their constituency, so please stop peddling the myth that he was never elected. I wasn't a fan of Brown either, but the idea that you are putting forward is a warped view of reality.

    In regards to the question:

    Churchill and Thatcher.
    ok, maybe i should word myself better :rolleyes:

    people elected the Labour Party in 1997 when Tony Blair was prime minister. him being prime minister must have had some influence over voters. the Labour Party was never elected in when Gordon Brown was prime minister.

    gosh people are so picky on here :rolleyes:

    I'm picky because it is the one thing that annoys me and I sympathise with Brown on. I never liked him as PM, but people focussed on something that wasn't true.

    just piss off you utter knob.

    If you said something remotely witty I might have raised a smile. But your not funny, all you can do is say "50 cent" when someone asks who was the best prime minister, it is a deserpate attempt to be funny or zany or whatever. And it has failed miserably, you just look like a knob.

    Now do yourself a favour and **** off, before you embarress yourself any further, you tit

    Wartime Churchill. Without his leadership the country may have listened to the many voices asking us to make peace with Hitler.

    Atlee or Thatcher would be my second choice.

    1. Churchill - His leadership in WWII was invaluable to the country. His peace time record was poor and he was an enthusiastic imperialist, but he was just what we needed after Chamberlain.

    2. Atlee - Achieved an awful lot in a relatively short period in office

    Worst - Pick any from Stanley Baldwin, Ramsey MacDonald, Edward Heath and Neville Chamberlain.

    Sneaky admiration for Wilson as he was such a tricky and devious individual and because he said no to the US over Vietnam.

    Clement Attlee.

    For overseeing the creation of the National Health Service (amongst other welfare provisions).
    For the skillful application of Keynesian economics in the transition from a wartime to a peacetime economy.
    For helping establish the Homosexual Law Reform Society.

    Margaret Thatcher said this of him:
    "Of Clement Attlee, however, I was an admirer. He was a serious man and a patriot. Quite contrary to the general tendency of politicians in the 1990s, he was all substance and no show".
