I wouldn't vote for either of them :roll: ........ still yet to see Churchill's uniform and rifle on display in a museum somewhere :roll: (yeah right) ........... and as for St. George :roll: .............

 

Name your own in this thread ........... here's mine for what it's worth.

 

King Alfred

 

Edward I (my own choice)

 

Plus the VERY important ones ......... all the MILLIONS who have died over the centuries fighting for this country's freedom ...... for which too many take for granted !

 

A link that may be of interest, a very, very brief look at Edward 'Longshanks'.

Problem is Tone, Joe Public tend not to have sufficient knowledge of history to make such a calculated assessment. I think you had a topic some time ago about "turning points in history" (ref UK); which throws up some interesting Leaders. :wink:
