At Long Last

As someone who has been inspired by the Liberal legacy of Lloyd George I am delighted that at long last he has been recognised with a statue in Parliament Square. The contribution that Lloyd George made to laying the foundations of the welfare state far outweight his demerits in other areas and deserve to be recognised.

He was the first guy to sell peerages?

Sorry, this poster is with Pinter, Pilger, et al on this one(see Torygraph letters). This man helped to balls up the Middle East with the resulting injustices and tradgies we see today, sold peerages for a song, professed admiration for Hitler, and refused to join Churchill's war-time coalition "beliving Britian's position was hopeless" (ref. Roy Jenkins, 'Churchill')
