I have had a request from my American blogging friend, chuq, over at https://lobotero.com/
He is a predominantly political blogger who writes a lot about the situation in the Middle East, and the current politics in America. Anti-Trump, pro-peace, and a history buff too. He served in Vietnam during that war, and has a lot of experience working in hotspots too. Prompted by an online article, he would like to know who the British readers consider to be their ‘Worst Briton’. If you are in Britain, or live elsewhere but come from here, please give that some thought, and add your own choices in the comments.
Here are some examples of my own ‘Worst Britons’, to give you an idea.
Edward VIII/ Duke of Windsor. A treasonous Nazi-loving member of the Royal Family.
Margaret Thatcher. The hideous woman who ruined this country during her time as Prime Minister.
Tony Blair. That odious, self-seeking man who destroyed the Labour Party.
King Charles I. A man so vain, he led the country into civil war, rather than recant his ‘divine right’ to rule.
They can be historical figures, entertainers, current personalities, political leaders, murderers, sports stars, criminals. Anything you like, as long as they are British.
Thanks in advance, Pete.
