David Lloyd George — ‘A Dynamic Force’

  • Dick Leonard


The child is father to the man, and in no case was this more true than with David Lloyd George — or Dafydd George, as he was first known. Brought up by an adoring uncle — Richard Lloyd — who persuaded him from an early age that he was an exceptional person, with no limits to what he could achieve, he unquestioningly accepted his destiny, and lived his whole life as if normal rules did not apply to himself, and that anything — or any person — that he desired was within his grasp.
