Obviously Churchill. Helped save the world from Fascism and repudiated Communism too. Was a bit slow on the uptake with things like universal suffrage, but hey, you can't have everything.

I wasn't sure whether you were being serious or not, as people do genuinely see her as the best... :biggrin:

The MPs actually voted her the 'best modern prime minister' this year.

Margaret thatcher, because she reversed so much of the awful socialism that embedded itself into the UK, which was rotting away the country in the dung of dumb ideas. she left a huge mark on politics which still today is clear, e.g. the fact that the labour party are a centre right party opposed to a left wing party. I'm not suggesting that she didn't have some bad policies (e.g. her policy against gay people) and I'm not saying that her impact was the largest in terms of things like democracy (e.g. lloyd george giving women the right to vote), I'm saying she is my favourite prime minister based on her legacy against the left

Clement Attlee, possibly followed by Lloyd George or Harold Wilson (1st term). If I had to choose a tory then probably MacMillan.

Without reproaching the conceptual coarseness here, this, as an empirical claim, is manifestly false in at least one sense: the 1974 Labour government faced the long-end of twenty years of Keynesian inflationary and balance of payments pressures, stemmed - but ultimately inflared - by repeated fiscal expansionism. In 1975, Labour enacted an austerity budget cutting public expenditure by £900 million, and in 1976 - out of choice - successfully appealed to the IMF for a special loan, which had attached strict monetarist conditionalities. Labour authored the transition from Keynesianism to monetarism in this country.

I would say Clement Attlee given that under his time as PM the NHS was created, which even allowing for its faults is a wonderful thing.

He arguably fastened the decline of the British Empire.

that's because the socialist policies were failing before she came to office and her policies obviously went further than the labour party were prepared to go, e.g. by deregulation, limiting the power of trade unions, reducing taxation, etc
