"Although the media expected Butler would get the nod, a survey of the Cabinet done for the Queen showed Macmillan was the nearly unanimous choice, and he became Prime Minister on 10 January 1957"

++

On this day in 1957 Sir Anthony Eden resigned as prime minister of Britain due to ill health, after just one year and 279 days in the post. He was succeeded by Harold Macmillan.

Eden resigned on 9 January 1957, after his doctors warned him his life was at stake if he continued in office. Although the media expected Butler would get the nod, a survey of the Cabinet done for the Queen showed Macmillan was the nearly unanimous choice, and he became Prime Minister on 10 January 1957. Shortly afterwards Eden and his wife left England for a holiday in New Zealand.

Eden retained much of his personal popularity in Britain, was created Earl of Avon in 1961, and entered the House of Lords. In retirement Eden was particularly bitter that during the Suez Crisis Eisenhower had initially indicated British and French troops should be allowed to remain around Port Said, only for the US ambassador Henry Cabot Lodge, Jr. to press for an immediate withdrawal at the UN, thereby rendering the operation a complete failure. Eden felt the Eisenhower administration's unexpected opposition was hypocritical in light of the 1953 Iranian coup d'état and the 1954 Guatemalan coup d'état.

This is your claim, by the way.

As I pointed out to you already, the little number at the end means WIKI took the source from another site.

I know: you run away and two weeks later invent the conversation we never had.

Do see how I pointed out on Jan. 22: Wiki- which YOU pointed to- didn't have the original source.

Let's also remind everyone this was in response to you insisting that Macmillan was the UNANIMOUS choice.

And you would later call this a "grammatical error".

Of course... you have problems with words like "only" and will insist that it is a "grammatical" error... like when you insisted someone was the unanimous choice... until I prove that wrong... and you changed it to "popular" (see above) choice.

Nope, here is the Facebook page for EB:

http://www.facebook.com/BRITANNICA

You have found a Facebook page with "Britannica" in its address and thought that it was EB. It may well be a "sister" page of EB of sorts - I will find out soon enough.

Furthermore, I see that the quote is there. I also see a lot of quotes located there in many other famous peoples' biographies that all come straight from Wikipedia. Are you claiming that websites cannot quote from each other and that everything posted on websites are their own, original work?

And let's not stop there - do you want to read Eden's biography from EB's official website?:

Anthony Eden, in full Robert Anthony Eden, 1st earl of Avon, Viscount Eden of Royal Leamington Spa, also called (until 1961) Sir Anthony Eden (born June 12, 1897, Windlestone, Durham, Eng.—died Jan. 14, 1977, Alvediston, Wiltshire), British foreign secretary in 1935–38, 1940–45, and 1951–55 and prime minister from 1955 to 1957.

After combat service in World War I, Eden studied Oriental languages (Arabic and Persian) at Christ Church, Oxford. He was elected to the House of Commons in 1923 and was appointed undersecretary of state for foreign affairs in 1931, lord privy seal (with special responsibility for international relations) in 1934, and minister for League of Nations affairs (a Cabinet office created for him) in June 1935. He became foreign secretary in December 1935 but resigned in February 1938 to protest Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain’s appeasement of Nazi Germany and Fascist Italy.

On the outbreak of World War II in September 1939, Eden reentered Chamberlain’s government as dominions secretary. When Churchill became prime minister on May 10, 1940, Eden was named secretary of state for war, but from Dec. 23, 1940, until the defeat of the Conservatives in July 1945, he served once more as foreign secretary. On Oct. 27, 1951, after Churchill and the Conservative Party had been returned to power, Eden again became foreign secretary and also was designated deputy prime minister. In 1954 he helped to settle the Anglo-Iranian oil dispute, to resolve the quarrel between Italy and Yugoslavia over Trieste, to stop the Indochina War, and to establish the Southeast Asia Treaty Organization (SEATO).

In 1953 he became seriously ill, and, although he underwent several operations, he never fully regained his health. Succeeding Churchill as prime minister on April 6, 1955, he attempted to relax international tension by welcoming to Great Britain the Soviet leaders N.S. Khrushchev and N.A. Bulganin. His fall began on July 26, 1956, when Gamal Abdel Nasser, head of the Egyptian state, nationalized the Suez Canal Company, in which the British government had been a principal stockholder since 1875. This action led to an Anglo-French attack on Egypt on November 5, one week after an attack on Egypt by Israel.

British public opinion was more favourable to Eden’s show of force than the Labour and Liberal parties had expected; his supporters regretted, however, that he did not fulfill his intention of occupying the key positions of Port Said, Ismailia, and Suez. By December 22, partly through U.S. pressure, British and French forces had been supplanted by UN emergency units, but the canal was left in Egyptian hands rather than subjected to international control. The next month, on Jan. 9, 1957, Eden resigned, giving ill health as his reason.

Eden was knighted (K.G.) in 1954 and created Earl of Avon in 1961. Eden’s memoirs were issued in three volumes, Full Circle (1960), Facing the Dictators (1962), and The Reckoning (1965).

Simple: because Wikipedia articles are bigger and longer to read so the poster of the article decided to highlight important pieces of text for the page's followers to casually read.

Note that the Wikipedia article is cited. Can you guess why the poster did that?

If the quote was originally from the source then Wikipedia would have placed the text in inverted commas.

They did not. They reworded the statement then cited the source.

Thus, your quote was not from the original source; you simply copy-pasted from Wikipedia.

Good idea - let's remind everyone that you pounced on one word to avoid the entire argument itself which was that Macmillan's appointment to replace Eden was reflective of his popularity within the Conservative party which in turn reflected the popular will of the people who democratically voted for that government, thus making your claims about Britain being an undemocratic monarchy laughable.
