Over the past few centuries, Great Britain has not just evolved as one of the most developed nations in the world, but is also known for its charismatic leaders. Although the royal family of Britain has a say in the political affairs of the nation, leaders belonging to political parties have also contributed greatly towards Great Britain’s development. The country’s tradition of appointing a Prime Minister has existed even in the 18th century, with Spencer Compton, Henry Pelham and Thomas Pelham Holles being some of the first few leaders of their kind. The legendary Prime Minister Sir Winston Churchill is recognized for being the leader who steered his nation to victory during the Second World War. British Prime Ministers of the modern era, such as Gordon Brown and Tony Blair have been praised for addressing global issues such as initiating the Climate Change.
