PITT. THE. ELDER!

P.S In reference to the actual historic debate: Pitt is probably the greater minister out of the two - Winning the Seven Years war and establishing British dominance in the world for the next hundred years. While Palmerstom didn't do much except establish a strong nationalistic government and fail to prevent Prussia invade Denmark. With that said Pitt the Elder is far from the greatest PM, he probably wasn't even the greatest of the "Pitt's". Pitt the Younger essentially created the idea of the "United Kingdom" and establish the foundations of what Britain is based on today, as well as crushing Napoleon's fleet at Trafalgar crucially preventing Napoleon from becoming unstoppable in the rest of the world. But even considering Pitt the Younger, I'd personally say Britain's greatest PM is a toss up between David Lloyd George and Winston Churchill. Perhaps leaning towards Churchill, as WWII put Britain in more danger than WWI did (Though George does have a killer stache...).
