This study, it is mainly discussed how the power adventure of the Democrat Party is evaluated in the eyes of the British Public Opinion. It covers a large part of the internal and foreign policy during the Democrat Party Rule. In this context, the issues in questions are handled chronologically within the historical context. In addition, the issues were discussed thematically. The Democratic Party's coming to power, the problems it experienced during this power period, the electoral victories, the political crises it experienced, and ultimately how the 1960 Military Coup was received by the British public were tried to be handled thematically. This study, which benefited from embassy documents and newspaper news, the reflections of Turkey's changing foreign policy paradigm in the British public were also evaluated. In the first part, in order to create an atmosphere of introduction to the study, the process that led Turkey to multi-party democracy, as well as the reasons for the said process in domestic and foreign policy are emphasized. In the second part, the coming to power of the Democrat Party and the internal and foreign policies implemented during its first five years are evaluated first through Turkish sources and then through English documents and newspapers that support them. In the last part, the issues in the internal and foreign policy of the Democratic Party between 1955 and 1960 are discussed from the perspective of both Turkish and British public opinion, as in the previous sections. In the last instance, how the 1960 Military Coup was evaluated in the eyes of the British public and the progress of the process leading to the coup were emphasized. The result reached; It is seen that Britain generally approaches the issues in Turkey in line with its interests in the Middle East, evaluates the democratic crises – such as the 1960 Military Coup – as a matter of principle, rather, as stated above, in the context own interest.
