Andrew Fitzhugh Brantle (July 3, 1920-August 4, 2001) was an English Labour politician and leader, who served as the fourth Prime Minister of England from 1981-1984. He succeeded Eustace Minor in a Labour landslide largely due to the effects of the 1979-83 global recession and the fatigue of the English populace with Whig policies. However, he was largely unable to combat the effects of the recession, and unemployment in fact increased during his tenure. He also struggled with unilateralists within his own party, who accused him of being a patsy for the American government, and he was uncomfortable in diplomatic situations. Two major defense scandals broke out during his term and he infamously endured a five-month strike by public employees in several counties. He lost to Stephen Norrington and the Whigs in the 1984 general election and retired from politics soon afterwards.
