Agree with all choices.
But let's not forget the Suffragettes, 21 June 1908,when those feisty ladies gave women a voice!!

Lord Nelson
Adolf Hitler (would love to know exactly what made him tick)
The Queen
and lots and lots of folk who gave their lives for this great country of ours

Colin - let's get this straight in my head - you admire Adolf Hitler!!!!! Think you're on your own on that one mate


AnnCardiff Report 22 Jun 2008 21:29

another one on my admiraton list is Morgan Tsvangerai [sp] of Zimbabwe - trying to change the political scene in Zimbabwe and getting nowhere because of all the corruption - he has a lot of supporters but I suppose if there was an uprising by them there would be all out bloodshed in Zimbabwe - he is one very brave man indeed
