History of English Prime MinistersWatch
I'm currently listening to the podcast Presidential, it's a very interesting series on the history of the presidents of the United States. But listening to it got me thinking I hardly know a thing about the history of English prime ministers. In fact I know more about US presidents than our very own prime ministers. On the top of my head I can only name three prime ministers that are no longer alive - Churchill, Thatcher and Disraeli. At school I wasn't taught a single thing about our prime ministers (not even Churchill). Sure I was told about our Kings and Queens but it's like my teachers thought our prime ministers didn't matter. Is this still the case with our education system? Were / Are you taught about our prime ministers in school? Is the history of our prime ministers (except maybe Churchill) disregarded and if so why? Or is it just me? I think I need to read some books on our historic prime ministers - can anyone recommend any good books on the subject?
I also know more presidents (I know all that came after Teddy Roosevelt and I know a few before him)
