[[caption-width-right:194:The PM so great we named some tea after him.]]

Charles Grey, [[KnightFever 2nd Earl Grey KG PC]] was one of the main architects of the 1832 Reform Act, despite stiff opposition from UsefulNotes/TheDukeOfWellington. Prior to the passing of the law, the parliamentary map had not been changed for centuries and some districts ("rotten boroughs") elected 2 [=MP=]s to Parliament even though no-one actually lived there. In addition to straightening out a rather corrupt and unfair system that could in part be blamed for the American Revolution he also presided the total abolition of slavery in the British Empire in 1833 and gave his name to the [[SpotOfTea aromatic blend of tea]] before retiring in 1834.

The fact that the man who very probably saved Britain from violent revolution and then basically sicced the entire might of the British Empire on the slave trade is now best remembered for the tea says a ''[[SpotOfTea lot]]'' about Britain.
