Robert Peel, as much as any man in the nineteenth century, transformed Great Britain into a modern nation. He invented our police force, which became a model for the world. He steered through the Bill which allowed Catholics to sit in Parliament. He reorganised the criminal justice system. Above all he tackled poverty by repealing the Corn Laws.

Thanks to Peel the most powerful trading nation chose free trade and opened the door for our globalised world of today. He was the man who provided cheap bread and sacrificed his career for the welfare of ordinary people.
