Blooming Idiot

diggFurldel.icio.usFacebook

Sir Henry Blooming-Idiot was a British statesman and Prime Minister (when he was known as Lord Blooming-Idiot). His reforms, although radical for the time, bought about great change for good while he was in office. He also saw military service in India and Afghanistan, where he acheived the rank of brigadier general.
He is singly regarded as the greatest British Prime Minister, if not politician of his century. Affectionately known as the "Great Blooming-Idiot", it is unclear how this became an insult in recent parlance.
