Who is your favourite British Prime Minister? Mine is Clement Attlee. Post and discuss!
Ex_Mil8 saidHarold Wilson. He was bright, shrewd and came from my home town (at least we have one thing in common).
His first period in office was notable for substantial legal changes in a number of social areas, including the liberalisation of laws on censorship, divorce, homosexuality, immigration, and abortion, as well as the abolition of capital punishment.
He also kept Britain out of the Vietnam War, despite pressure from the US to involve Britain and send British troops.
maxferguson saidDefinitely Winston Churchill and Margaret Thatcher, both for their wit and character.
