    And I know why you think my figures are wrong. Because you are learning a history made by evil-capitalists (between 22000-25000 were killed)
    The true history writes winners (USSR)
    Winners(USSR) writes the history of losers (USA, Britain, Third Reich)

    Even Ancient Greeks indulged in this

    Why I compared USA and Britain to Third Reich?
    Because they didn't win nothing!!
    I must have missed the period of history where the USA and Britain spoke Russian...

    For the UK probably David Lloyd George, though this is mainly due to his actions as Chancellor more than as PM.
    For the US, Thomas Jefferson. A truly great thinker.

    Well, it's certainly not lizard face Tony Blair. The Labour party are power pimps. When they're not pimping multiculturalism they're being pimped by Israel or Extremists who manipulate their soft ways.

    My favorite prime minister was Harold Wilson, mainly for his social policies - Legalising abortion, leagalising homosexuality, getting rid of the death penalty and relaxing censorship laws, making the country overall more equal I also like how he reformed the education system
    Exactly the same. Wilson was a good leader. Churchill was great, but only really as a wartime leader, his strength didn't lie in his time in office during peacetime.

    Of course, Margaret Thatcher also deserves a mention. Although some of her policies were adapted from Heath (as many overlook), she was still a great leader, her strength and her ability to enforce her views through her personality is inspiring.

    Who is your favorite president/prime minister? And why?
    Favourite president is probably FDR for his new deal and all the stuff he did to help the underprivileged. Also Lincoln and Washington plus (but on a lesser plain), for their charisma - Kennedy and Clinton.

    I don't have favourite prime ministers so much as favourite govts - the great liberal govt of around 1909 which introduced the national insurance stamp, state pensions etc and also the post war Atlee govt which started the NHS.

    Nixon is my favourite president.

    Reasons?

    Madman theory was awsome, He had an awsome voice and for some reason I just identify with him since he is often considered the least favourite president so... I guess you could say he is an underdog.

    I'd have to agree by saying Attlee as well. Even though I'd associate my political views with libertarianism, I admire how he set up the original welfare state with great aims, the NHS which provides a fundamental human right,I believe, to healthcare while other countries make a profit from this! Also because he began the process of dismantling the Empire with the independence of India and scaling down the armed forces to bring about an end to Imperialism. Great guy even though he was a socialist

    Clement Attlee

    Had the political vision to set up the Welfare State and enable Aneurin Bevan to found the National Health Service.

    And this at a time when we had just come out WW2 with massive debt ( 220% of GDP- much more than now!)

    A lesson to Messrs Cameron, Osborne and Clegg of what can be achieved with strength of character and political will.

    Mine is Hugo Chávez. The reason being for the way he transformed Venezuela and the amount of admiration and support he received from his people.
