Whether you love or hate the present prime minister he is in place due to charisma, a straight talking politician, a showman with a common touch. But he is not the first, and perhaps something of a turned down version of a previous prime minister Lloyd Geoge.
Lloyd George was described as a “cavorting charlatan”, a “bully”, a “rogue” and a “scoundrel”, who “would not recognise truth,” He was ruthlessly ambitious, and didn’t mind who knew it.
The population joked that Lloyd George had a child in every town.
Similarly he was untouchable for a while. Whatever he did: he got away with.
But when a charasmatic leader loses his shine. He’s dealt with quickly.
And then followed by a more traditional boring politician.
