Whoops, that was an input mistake. I've corrected it to 1979–90 (Thatcher was Prime Minister until 1990, not 1989). Thanks for pointing out!

Nice quiz, this one must take a ton of practice to get 100%. For some reason I find most UK prime ministers before Attlee far less memorable than US presidents, even though I'm British.

Indeed; I tried to make things slightly easier by accepting both their 'noble' names (if they have one) and common names.

Love the quiz. Got 100% but only because I know the names and these are in order. I think that a random slideshow quiz would make it far more challenging. I certainly wouldn't get 100% on that!!

Many thanks for your time and effort in making the quiz. Much appreciated.
